mangoSweet potatoes, butternut squash, canataloupe, mango and pineapples nourish metabolism and helps to reduce emotional eating and anxiety.

Try eating sweet potatoes as a snack by slicing very thin and baking in an oven set at 350 degrees until slightly crispy. You can add a small amount of coconut oil to give them flavor or a very small amount of butter.

Butternut squash is a wonderfully soothing dish that quells emotions. Try a butternut squash soup but be wary of prepared ones that are high in corny syrup or other sugars.

Follow this recipe on the Alltherecipes website which offers a wide variety of recipes for people with food allergies:

In this recipe, I would substitute sweet potatoes for the potatoes and leave out the celery. I also would cut the butter by 50%. I like to substitute coconut oil for butter as well for dish that also nourishes brain chemistry.

Make a fruit parfait with unsweetened greek yogurt. Slice 1/4 cup each of pineapples, mango and cantaloupe. Stir in 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt sweetened with vegetable glycerin (add a tsp at a time until it is the desired sweetness). For a vegan version, leave out the yogurt and add 1 tsp of chia seeds, and 1/4 cup walnuts for protein.
