VZ 267: 9 Ways to Manage Stress and Anxiety Naturally

If you are like most people, you can experience a fair amount of stress and anxiety on a daily basis. Whether it be from your job, your kids, your spouse, or just what’s going on in the world today. We all deal with a certain amount of stress and can use some help to manage stress and anxiety naturally.

Back in episode 103, we did a podcast called, “Food and Stress – How to Eat Properly and Stress Less.”

In today’s episode of the Vegetarian Zen Podcast, we are going to revisit the topic of stress management naturally since this topic has evolved since we last discussed in episode 103.

  1. Loved the show. Keep up the good work. Let me introduce something I loooooove: The night before I want to eat this cereal, I soak steel cut oats, quinoa, chia seeds, buckwheat, yellow lentils, cinnamon, and nutmeg in mountain spring water for up to 12 hrs. Then I slow cook until tender being sure to add more water to keep from drying out – I don’t want it soupy like some people eat oatmeal nor do I want it dry like cornmeal mush. I prepare enough to last me for several meals (breakfast, lunch and/or dinner) for 3-4 days. I then put 2-3 spoons full of this “cereal” in a bowl as a base to which I add fresh chopped spinach, dandelion leaves, kale/kale like greens, sometimes broccoli, maybe even black beans or other beans and even peas. I also add lots of fresh grated ginger, turmeric and (at times) even 2-4 cloves of garlic. I also add a tbsp of 100% pure cacao/cocoa. Also nutritional yeast, and flaxseed meal. I then add a mix of half & half soybean & almond milks – the dandelion for many people is too bitter (I love the bitterness – ever heard of bitter herbs?), but by adding the ginger which is a bit spicy along with the cocoa, the flavor is tamed & sweetened a wee bit. Hope someone out there, maybe even you, don’t find this too weird. I make it for myself because of its heartiness, nutritional values and to me, splendid flavor.


    • Hi! Thanks for your comment. I’ve never tried Dandelion but sounds interesting! So many different ways to enjoy oatmeal!
