Some stress reducing Blast recipes can be found at this link here:

For anxiety: There are some foods that help to calm your nervous system and boost your mood. These foods, in addition to stress reducing techniques, may help with your symptoms. Some suggested foods to include in your NutriBlast are those higher in tryptophan (bananas, pumpkin seeds, almonds) which converts to serotonin which works to balance out feelings of stress and anxiety. Also foods containing tyrosine (spinach, spirulina) which is the precursor for dopamine, the feel-good chemical for the brain.
Magnesium-rich food help calm muscles and nerves: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/super-mineral-your-body-needs

Other foods kefir and kimchi (probiotics and GABA), tryptophan-rich foods to boost serotonin (pumpkin seeds, edamame, shrimp), Nori seaweed and cooked quinoa (magnesium and vitamin B6).

Poor veins I'm assuming you're referring to blood circulation? For poor circulation and hypertension, vegetables high in natural nitrates such as beets, basil, Swiss chard, beet greens, and arugula have been shown helpful. Also, potassium-rich foods like baked sweet potato, lentils, Swiss chard, avocado, and banana may help.

Also, warming spices like cayenne pepper, ginger, cinnamon, turmeric, and garlic have been shown to improve blood flow. Other good options are citrus fruits due to their vitamin C, nuts and seeds due to their Vitamin E, and also dried goji berries!
