Think I’m off my rocker for recommending ceviche to keep your cool?
Well, here’s the deal.
Low Vitamin D is linked to moods and supplementation is linked to overall quality of life.
Vitamin B, found in spicy peppers, cucumbers and avocados is calming to the nervous system.
Cilantro is also a calming and cooling herb and the omega fats in Salmon and avocados has been shown to reduce the symptoms of anxiety.
All of which are found in this Salmon Ceviche recipe that is also perfect for sweltering summer days when heat can peak anxiety – since the symptoms of over heating are almost identical to anxiety attacks.
So, do yourself a favor and throw this together. It’s delicious – which matters most.
