Nutrition Should Not Be A Trend


Forget diets, just eat real whole foods and you wont even have to count calories or boycott certain foods. For example, portion controlled diets are just setting yourself up for failure, you need to eat when you're hungry, just fill yourself up with goodness! Gluten free is just a fad, it's not the gluten, it's the way our wheat is processed so avoid all GMO foods and I bet you'll have no gluten intolerance. Remember that sugar is added to processed foods too, so try and just buy raw natural ingredients to make your meals with, not prepackaged things in boxes, and especially avoid, sugar free (filled with worse chemical sweaters than just sugar in it's raw form) and fat free, many foods need the good fats i.e yogurt.

These few things have been working wonders for our bodies through all the fads!

Spicy foods, well the capsaicin that comes from the peppers, can stimulate stomach nerves letting us know when we're truly full. Think chili and cayenne peppers. 

Olive oil long associated with the Mediterranean diet is linked to greatly reducing a women's risk of developing breast cancer among aiding so many other things, including depression.

Honey is a miracle food. Just remember to buy unpasturized honey. It alleviates allergies, fights cancers with its flavonoids a type of antioxidant, reduces coughs, and among many other benefits also acts as an anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. It can be used internally and topically.

Does Food Affect Our Mood?

Darn right it does! All those nutrients in healthy food have a huge impact on your brain function and therefore your mood. Think as your body as one big machine, if all the parts are working properly by obtaining the right fuel, all systems should be good to go! 
95% of serotonin is created in our gut and so is GABA. The bacteria in our gut is called our microbiome, a diverse ecosystem, and it makes up approximately 1 kg of weight in the average adult. This bacteria protects our intestinal lining, aids in digestion and the absorption of the nutrients found in what we eat, and even aids the manufacturing of neurotransmitters creating a link between our gut and our brain. 
When we eat nutrient rich whole foods we are enabling our bodies to function as they were designed.  Probiotics, prebiotics and fermented foods all aid our gut bacteria. Fibre rich foods help the bacteria in our colon. 
So bring on the whole foods (foods that have not been altered) and create a great ecosytem within you!…
