Stress-busting foods

When work deadlines begin piling up and your social calendar is booked, the last thing you want to hear is to steer clear of the vending machine. Who has time for healthy eating? But when it comes to combating stress levels, what you eat may actually help relieve your tension. Indeed, some foods may help stabilize blood sugar or, better yet, your emotional response.

Grilled Salmon With Greens

This one-dish grilled salmon recipe is perfect for a busy weeknight. You’ll love the homemade vinaigrette recipe.

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (4-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 (6-inch) whole-wheat pitas
  • 8 ounces mixed salad greens
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
  • Vinaigrette:
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Coat the grill with cooking spray, and heat to medium-high. Sprinkle salmon fillets with salt and pepper, and grill 4 minutes on each side (skin side up first) or just until done. Remove skin; transfer fillets to a plate.

Grill pitas for about 45 seconds per side, or until lightly browned. Cut each into 4 wedges.

Divide salad among 4 plates, and top with goat cheese and salmon. Whisk vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl, and drizzle over greens. Top each salad with 2 pita crisps.
