Nutrition: How it changed my life!
Good nutrition is one of the keys to a healthy life. You can improve your health and well-being by keeping a balanced diet. If you suffer from stress, feeling tired or sometimes you are in pain, then you must take note of what I am going to discuss in this article.
The foods we eat play a huge part in our everyday lifestyle, in fact, it played a huge part in my recovery from Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. So here in my article, I am going to talk about the reason for good nutrition, as well as giving you top tips on what foods to eat and what to avoid.
Many of us are ignorant when it comes to the food we put inside our bodies, unaware of the effects it can cause. I was, I suffered for many years with Chronic pain, every day I was feeling sluggish, having no energy, juggling work life and family, it was tough, so exploring the cause and changing my diet was a blessing.
Why nutrition is important
A balanced diet is an important part of leading good health and wellbeing, the correct foods provide our bodies with the supplements we need such as vitamins, minerals protein, fats and energy. We need to ensure we eat the right amount of nutrients to live a healthy lifestyle, if we don't, the effects can result in significant health problems such as Heart disease, Chronic disease, High blood pressure and obesity.
What foods to eat
There are many foods that are full of nutrients, the list goes on, here are a few of my favourites which helped me through my recovery process.
A variety of green vegetables such as spinach, broccoli and parsley is full of vitamins and minerals, however, Kale is of all the most nutritious.
Sulphur-rich foods support the skin, muscles, bones, hair and nails. Foods such as cabbage, cauliflower, sprouts, leeks, onions and mushrooms. Coloured veg such as carrots, peppers and beetroot are also good.
Raspberries and blueberries are loaded with powerful antioxidants which supports the brain cells. I add these to my morning porridge to give more flavour.
Seafood and fish, especially Salmon have a high amount of nutrients, one of my favourite dishes is salmon and salad.
Avocado neutralises a lot of acid builds up in the stomach which is caused by stress and anxiety, add this to your salad it tastes great!
You must avoid processed food such a tinned vegetables, savoury snacks such as crisps and sausage rolls, as well as processed cakes, pastries and fast foods, especially if you are recovering from Chronic Fatigue or Fibromyalgia.
Keep a Journal
A good way to start is by keeping a Journal, track what foods you eat and what effects it has on you. Mine was wheat, after eating it I found myself feeling sluggish and in pain.
