Don’t cheat eat during tax season: Take 5 deep breaths & order up some Zen

So, the tax deadline is coming fast. You know you need to fill out that form, but the thought stresses you out completely. Relax! Tax day angst doesn’t have to overwhelm, not when there are delicious foods out there that ease nervous tension naturally.

UberEATS delivers all the food you love, and we can recommend fresh options that serve up sweet serenity. So when you’re ordering this tax season, keep some of these stress-reducing foods in mind:

Asparagus. Folic acid is known for reducing feelings of depression, and just one cup of asparagus provides two-thirds of your daily value. Ask for it steamed, roasted, added to a scramble or as a side to your meal, pre tax-prep.

Blueberries. Think of each little berry as a stress superhero and the answer to complex deductions. Blueberries contain antioxidants and Vitamin C, making them the powerful enemies of stress. Request them in your breakfast bowls, acai bowls, pressed juices, pancakes, and muffins. Maybe have a blueberry smoothie delivered while you add up your exemptions.

Salmon. Omega 3 fatty acids keep cortisol and adrenaline from getting out of control during stressful times, like sorting W2s. Salmon is packed full of Omega 3, so order a bagel with lox, a grilled salmon dinner or hey, how about some fresh salmon sushi—delivered?

Spinach. Mom was right about eating your spinach—it’s so good for you. Load up in salads, as a side, sub it in for lettuce on your burger, and in your omelets and scrambles. One cup of spinach delivers 40% of the magnesium you need each day, and magnesium is the mineral that regulates cortisol and reduces feelings of stress.

Avocados. If tax math is making you hot under the collar, avocados can help lower your blood pressure, thanks to the monounsaturated fat and potassium in every creamy bite. They also boost Vitamin B, which helps to combat anxiety.

Tax day comes once a year, but with the right foods, you can beat the stress. Oh, and having your meal delivered at Uber speed will save you time, too.

UberEATS is available in 50+ cities–so we’re likely to be in yours. Open your UberEATS app now or visit our website and find the healthy choices that will take you through tax day and beyond.
