How does food affect your mood?

June 1, 2016

 

Can you believe it's already June? That means it's basically already summer in most places. It's been pretty cloudy here lately, so hasn't felt much like summer, but that will come soon. Summer is my favorite time of the year, but that also means going to the beach/pool, wearing swimsuits more often, and wearing less clothes. Are you ready for summer? If you are feeling that you have put on a few pounds and want to feel your best when it's time to put your swimsuit on, click here to download your FREE copy of the 3 Day Weight Loss Jumpstart!

Speaking of food, did you know that food has vibrations that allow it to create change in our bodies on a cellular level? Food that is alive and from the earth will energize and invigorate you, while processed, pre-packaged, dead food will leave you feeling lethargic and uninspired, like a light that has fizzled out. Makes sense doesn’t it?

Dark green leafy vegetables are full of chlorophyll, which is basically liquid sunshine. It is the substance in plants that allows them to absorb light from the sun and convert it into usable energy.  When we consume raw dark green vegetables such as kale, broccoli, and Swiss chard, we fill our body with the equivalent of the plant’s life blood – the very thing that allows a seed to flourish and take form.

 

Chemically, the blood of the plant, chlorophyll, is very similar to our blood and, when consumed, it helps us to oxygenate and breathe life into every cell.  Pretty cool, huh? Chlorophyll is also extremely cleansing and detoxifying.

 

Here are some other high vibrational foods for you to try:

  1. Tree Fruits – try apples, pears, bananas, coconuts, avocados, nectarines, peaches, plums, apricots, oranges, lemons, limes, mangos, pomegranates, blueberries, cherries, and olives.

  2. Non-green veggies

  3. Raw Cacao – chocolate in its pure form has over 1,200 phytonutrients. It contains nutrients like magnesium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, copper, and manganese.  It also contains phenylethylamine, which are the feel good characteristics, and theobromine which dilates the cardiovascular system to allow all the benefits to come in. I use this regularly to make smoothies, avocado pudding, and hot chocolate.

  4. Goji Berries – packed with antioxidants, which can help minimize free radical damage to our cells.

  5. Cultured and Fermented Foods –a great source of probiotics, which will help your digestion stay on track. 

I firmly believe in the old saying, “You are what you eat.”  Junk in = feeling like junk, and rich, living, nutrient-dense food = much happier body and mind. Don’t just take my word for it.  We’ve all tried the junk in, junk out experiment, so don’t you think it’s time to rock your body and mind with some fresh and fabulous food? By eating food that vibrates at a higher frequency, we increase our life-force energy and feel more radiant inside and out.

P.S. If you are struggling to reach your health goals, and are sick of yo-yo dieting, I'd like to invite you to sign up for a complimentary 45 minute Your Dream Body Discovery Session with me.  Please email me or contact me here to set up a time!
