🍊 Self-Care Sunday 🥕

This week why not focus on making some healthy changes to your nutrition. Good nutrition is self-care because your relationship with food can help create a better sense of balance in your life. Here's a few things to keep in mind when you're filling your plate!


⮞ More COLOR! The more colorful the better. Not only does it lend itself to more diversity of immune-boosting and inflammation-fighting vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and more!


⮞Eat GOOD fat: What does that look like? You can find healthy omega-3 fatty acids in fish, olive oil, avocado, and nuts. These fats have been shown to reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol, and more!


⮞Eat for your gut: Your gastrointestinal tract is home to 90% of your serotonin, a chemical neurotransmitter that affects your mood, appetite, sleep, memory, and more. What are gut friendly foods? Natural yogurt, walnuts, almonds, oat bran and pumpkin seeds.


⮞Less sugars: Eating sugar heavy foods increases your risk of obesity, Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Check out the informative Forbes article for more nutritional health tips!: https://buff.ly/3KQjT8x


Try to avoid drastic diets that will only leave you frustrated when it is not realistically feasible to keep up with it. Instead pick a few healthy changes/hacks to implement into your life and once you have mastered them move onto the next. Make gradual changes that you will be more likely to stick to! Most importantly, be KIND to yourself. If you have a bad nutrition day just try again tomorrow. As long as you don't give up you are on the right track.
