Nutrition is one of the most important things that has allowed me to live free of psychiatric drugs and understand my body, my moods, and my energy levels.
Tip: if you tend to feel anxious and ungrounded, eat extra fat such as organic olive oil, organic coconut oil or pastured butter. When I started eating extra healthy fats, I felt so much more in control of my state of mind and even sleep. When I have insomnia I often consume a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil to put myself back to sleep. It almost always works. A high quality food-based multivitamin and magnesium oil (this is one of the most affordable ones and the one I use) can help too, if your body resonates with those.
The main key for me has been to do a lot of research while consistently tuning in to what my body wants or doesn’t want. There are days when I can take all of my supplements and days where I can’t take any.
This is a salad I ate yesterday. Organic baby romaine, organic carrot chopped, organic olive oil, black sesame seeds (good for kidneys), balsamic vinegar and Lilly’s organic garlic hummus.
I’ve been moving around and traveling a lot lately, and haven’t had a lot of time to cook, except for my daily breakfast, so organic salad every day has been my best way to get lots of nutrients in the summer.
