Fruits and vegetables are the most nutrient-dense foods particularly dark green leafy vegetables. One of my daily rituals to ensure that I get as many green vegies into my diet as possible. This simple remedy is perfect for people who are busy and want to ensure that they get loads of antioxidants and anti flammatory benefits. I started this habit about 3 years ago when I decided to transition to a wholefood plant based diet and have never looked back.
I love a good nourish bowl filled with healthy fats, protein and complex carbs. They make the perfect lunch or dinner and can be modified depending on the season or what you have in the fridge. Simple and quick meals are key in maintaining healthy eating habits!
If you are like me and you generally run on what normal people think is “overdrive” you probably need to take some time out. I recently took a long weekend away to unwind and guess what? It was blissful! I felt rejuvenated and relaxed. Sometimes, even for the most energetic amongst us we need to take it down a gear or two and let our adrenal glands recover. Your adrenal glands help you respond to stress. If you are a person that is constantly rushing or you have chronic stress, your adrenals get fried, and it becomes increasingly difficult to manage your life, leading to feelings of burnout and loss of energy.
So the first of January has come and gone and most people have made some kind of vague resolution about “losing weight”, “getting fit” and “eating better”. While these things are all excellent pursuits they are not specific and leave you feeling overwhelmed, lost and more confused. After the first setback we experience we give up and claim “it’s impossible”.
