Artificial sweeteners
Refined sugar
Processed foods 
Hydrogenated oils 
Foods high in sodium 
Alcohol 
Caffeine
Energy drinks
.
CONSUME MORE:
Nuts and seeds 
Fatty fish: Salmon, mackerel, herring, tuna, sardines, anchovies

Lunch today was a quick throw together salad consisting of romaine lettuce, leftover quesadilla stuffing (bell pepper, green onion, spinach, arugula, ground beef), @campbellgreenhouses pea shoots, avacado, purple onion, a splash of @franksredhot + homemade df ranch 👌

Sometimes I think my protein sizes are too large but I've been seeing/reading a lot lately about how protein is so good for mental health. It acts as a natural mood stabilizer (along with healthy fats) which for someone who struggles with d/a like me, this is important! Of course that doesn't mean I'm going to go overboard with my protein.. it just means that I'm choosing to ignore the 'rules' regarding the size of protein at each meal + just listen to what my body needs and/or is craving 😌💁‍♀️

Yummy and colourful #carrot and #chickpea #soup for dinner this week, batch cooked last week! 🥕🥦

#foodprepping is not just for fitness enthusiasts... It's a great addition to a daily self care routine... preparing food in advance takes away the decision making process at the end of the day (when we're normally depleted and hungry!)

Go one better and make a weekly meal plan - something that may seem like a chore initially, once done can be a huge relief and means they'll be no more staring into that cupboard asking what shall I cook for dinner tonight... 😄

When you begin to talk about hormones and how to better regulate them, inevitably the discussion comes around to controlling them as we age with pharmaceuticals or supplements.  But in many instances, this may not be the best way.⠀

In today's episode of #TheMentalMinute, I describe how you can maintain your insulin hormone (blood sugar) using an illustration of a see-saw, an overweight person on one end, and an underweight person on the other. ⠀

If I can just keep him focused on nutrition, we might actually make it through the teen years. He’s had a few days without his @innov8tivenutrition protein shakes, energy or BIOTICS because mom didn’t set everything out and boy did his mood let us know. Im so grateful that we can have a really blunt talk about it and get him refocused. Teen years aren’t easy but I’m thankful we found some supplements that are making a big difference.

#veggiehack and then #realtalk here!  My #boys like #rice and #broccoli and that’s about it for “whole” foods at the moment!  so what I did was made their “yellow rice” as we call it but I added a whole peeled and grated #zucchini !!! This was 1.5c uncooked jasmine rice (then cooked and stirred in the grated zucchini and dash of #tumeric to make it yellow) They never knew! 
NOW ... #letsgetreal ... it took me and hubs about an hour to settle them down and actually be #calm enough to eat. They started w “I want mac n cheese” and “I’m not eating that”..blah blah.. they screamed and cried and threw their 5 and 6 year old tantrums. But they’re OLD enough now to know I’m not playing games. And #dinner time is sitting together as a #family when we get the chance. it also dawned on me that #food affects #mood (do your homework!!!). They went to movies today and had more #candy than they’re used to (it’s all good and they had fun!) but had they not had so much junk today, I can say confidently that they would not have been so manic when it came to eating dinner tonight.  Long story short, they ate every bite and we were all calm in the end! 
Case in point:  Salvi had the stomach bug earlier in the week, he hadn’t eaten much of anything in 2 days. The 3rd day, he was in such a #happy mood... why? One because he was feeling better and two bc he didn’t have any crap in his system! 
I’ll be the first to admit, my boys have more than their fair share of crap. And we’re doing our best to balance w good food too... but as parents and adults we all need to be #mindful that #foodaffectsmood and #actions and #thoughts

So important when changing what foods you are eating to pay attention to how you feel .
.
Sure in the moment a piece of chocolate or bag of chips feels good in that moment .
.
But wait a few minutes an hour perhaps and see how you feel .
. 
My food choices are directly related to how i feel .
.
Artificial preservatives and  sweeteners cause migraines for me so i avoid them .
.
Certain foods help to absorb nutrients in the GI tract literally impacting our moods and the way we think .

It seems the term "fasting" is all-the-rage right now.  Everyday there is a new article that talks about what 'not eating" for a time can do for your body.  But in all the articles, I've noticed that it's missing one very important reason and benefit.
*
*
In today's episode of #TheMentalMinute, I explain why, by simply being alive, your body is doing this one this 24 hours a day, and if you fast, you are allowing it to rest.  It's like Russell Westbrook... as good of a basketball player he is, even he needs to take a break not to wear himself out.  Watch the video and learn the most important benefit of fasting.

Holy crapola! Being internetless for over 6 week’s sucks!😫😳😄 It feels fabulous to be reconnected with you all! I’ve missed being able to chat with you and follow you all through this beautiful spring we have been having. I have really missed chatting with you all about health and fitness! Sadly I fell of the healthy wagon for a few weeks and in turn dealt with some serious anxiety, panic and over all glumness. (yes, diet effects your mental state) 💯 Since we have settled into our new abode a lot has changed! And it’s all been for the better. I have gone from fast foods and pre made meals, to making my own meals again. My kiddos and I have been enjoying WAYYYY more fresh air and wholesome sunshine, and I have been doing my Insanity DVDs because it is the only workout programs I have available offline. I am on week 5 and have already lost 2 inches around my middle! 💃  I’m excited to finish it in July and start 80DO. 
Friends, eating well and moving your body is important in so many ways! The biggest reason I make these things so important to me is because #1 I have watched my mental state deteriorate from lack of these things and #2 I crave the energy I feel when I’m on top of my diet and working out regularly. If you are feeling sluggish, icky and blah and want to change it, MESSAGE ME! Seriously, I know how you feel and I would love to share what I’m doing with you. Two months from now you will be so damn grateful you started the programs and healthy meals I will share with you. I would thoroughly enjoy being a part of your journey! Coaching badasses like you is my jam, and I’d love to help you transform your life! I know, that sounds like fluff and puff, but guess what, it is exactly what happened for me, and I know it can happen for you as well. Trust me, you won’t regret it. ✨🌟💫 Have a terrific Wednesday!  Message me today and we can get you signed and ready to kick off next week in the most epic way ever! 🙌❤️ #selfloveisthebestlove #wednesdaythoughts #fitnessmoms

Eating nutrient-dense foods not only makes you feel more energized and satiated, but it can also put you in a better mood!  Yes, you may actually feel happier after eating a healthy, well-balanced meal. 😄 Here are a few reasons why:
.
.
- VITAMINS - A few vitamins can directly impact your mood!  Vitamin D has been shown to help relieve mood disorders.  We all know soaking up the ☀️ is a great source of vitamin D, but many of us want to avoid the sun…so milk, egg yolks, and fortified almond milk are also great alternatives.  Folate and B12 may also help ease depression.  To boost your folate intake, eat more dark leafy greens, lentils, broccoli, asparagus, and citrus fruits.  B12 is only found in animal products (so if you’re vegan, make sure to take supplements!); good sources include eggs, lean meat, salmon, and milk products.
.
- FIBER - Most Americans need a lot more fiber in their diet!  Soluble fiber helps slow your digestion, including the absorption of sugar into your bloodstream.  It also increases serotonin, the “feel good” neurotransmitter primarily found in the gastrointestinal tract.  The decreased absorption of sugar and boost in serotonin both help decrease mood swings.  To up your soluble fiber intake, eat more oats, nuts, seeds, legumes, apples, pears, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage.
.
- PROTEIN - On the flip side, most Americans get too much protein in their diet.  However, if you make sure to eat protein with carbohydrates, it will help slow the absorption of the carbs in your blood and will boost the release of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine, which can help improve your energy and mood in the hours that follow your meal.  Skip the sugar-filled protein bars and shakes and try healthy protein options like eggs, poultry, seafood, beans, and Greek yogurt.
.
.
Bottom line, you’ll never regret eating a meal that makes you feel amazing. 💪🥦🤸‍♀️🥚🚴‍♂️🍎🏄‍♀️🥜 #noregrets #eatforhappiness #healthandhappiness #foodaffectsmood #foodforenergy #naturalvitamins #eatmorefiber #wholefoodprotein #livewellstaywell #wellify #christinelawschaffer

Gut health has so much to do with how we feel! It can influence or cause depression, anxiety, skin issues, bowl issues and so much more!! .

What we put into our bodies does matter! 
It’s important to remember our gut can often heal itself but you have to give it the tools it needs!! Limit or get rid of the bad, give it rest and time, add probiotics! .

Made a mistake and bought marinated chicken thighs and they were far too many calories but they tasted great a little burnt but yummy. Added rice with quinoa and peppers, onions and mushrooms 😋 #caloriecounting #cc #weightloss #foodaffectsmood #myjourney
Lunch - a big salad with ham and gherkins only 129 calories. 
#caloriecounting #weightloss #cc #myjourney #foodaffectsmood
Breakfast is a massive downfall for me I never fancy it and always miss it and start something else this week my goal is to eat breakfast every day. 2 poached eggs, spinach and chilli flakes. 121 calories and so tasty 😋

If you eat 3 square meals a day, it's important to note that your body digests food 24 hours a day.... Think about it.... For most people, digestion never stops.  Don't you think that for your future health, you might want to reduce the amount of foods in order to be less taxing on your gut? *
*
Here's an idea:  For your meals, use smaller plates and fill it with nutrient dense, calorie dense wholesome foods. The satiety will last longer, you will have greater energy, and believe it or not, you'll consume fewer calories overall. If you just use a big plate, start with a dense bed of leafy greens or a rainbow of vegetable color and spread your food out evenly. The illusion is more than plenty. *

If you eat 3 square meals a day, it's important to note that your body digests food 24 hours a day.... Think about it.... For most people, digestion never stops. Don't you think that for your future health, you might want to reduce the amount of foods in order to be less taxing on your gut? * * Here's an idea: For your meals, use smaller plates and fill it with nutrient dense, calorie dense wholesome foods. The satiety will last longer, you will have greater energy, and believe it or not, you'll consume fewer calories overall. If you just use a big plate, start with a dense bed of leafy greens or a rainbow of vegetable color and spread your food out evenly. The illusion is more than plenty. * * * * * * #bonehealth  #Gitract  #Autism  #gutbrainaxis  #leakygut  #IBS  #Guthealth  #gooddigestion  #foodaffectsmood  #opiates  #addiction  #serotonin  #dopamine  #mentalhealth  #depressionhealth  #gutstrong  #microbiome  #healthybody  #tummylove  #guthealth  #naturopathic  #constipation  #holistic  #poop  #healthyfood  #antioxidant  #cancer  #antiaging  #colonics  #fasting 
How much time, money and energy do you spend on some of these? Sometimes it's not so hard to persist with healthy eating when you consider some of the alternatives.

Back from a quick trip up to Goldy this weekend for my nieces baby shower 💙👶🏻. Safe to say my food choices were poor which definitely showed during my workout and on the scales this afternoon. Feeling terrible physically and mentally but I got through the workout and I’m happy with that small win. Ready for the big week ahead 😁♥️ #onlyhuman #whoops #notsorry #foodislyf #bringit #motivated #sundaysesh #circuittraining #bbg #week1 #sweatymess #selfie #legday #tired #drained #healthy #foodaffectsmood #staystrong #gym #fit #fitness #life #love #happy #family #enjoylife

Food affects your mood.... in a roundabout way via the gut bacteria 😉🤗💯🍴
Charlize Theron was recently interviewed about gaining 50lbs for Tully and said, “I was surprised, I got hit pretty hard with depression.” She said she was eating lots of processed foods and sugary drinks. 🥤🍟🥤🍟
.
Did you know that most serotonin (the feel-good neurotransmitter), is made in THE GUT?! By the gut bacteria living there!! .
Every time you eat you are feeding them, and someone who eats like shit is naturally going to feed more of the bad bugs instead of the good ones. This is how dysbiosis can occur, which means things that a healthy microbiome can do, may no longer be happening. Dysbiosis more commonly starts after a course of antibiotics, or more so after repeated courses. .
The supplement 5-HTP is a great, SAFE, alternative to SSRI drugs. 5-HTP helps with the conversion to serotonin, making it easier for the gut to make.  SSRI drugs have a totally different mechanism of action by blocking receptors in the brain. 
5-HTP is also used a lot as a prokinetic to keep things moving. That’s because serotonin keeps things moving naturally in the GI. .
So anyone with IBS-C, SIBO-C, or any chronic constipation may have strong feelings of depression- which is really from a damaged gut. .
The takeaway: anyone with chronic constipation or depression may really benefit from taking 5-HTP, as well as, of course, eating healthy and repairing the gut with probiotics and healthy fats. .
I believe future treatment for depression, as well as many other chronic diseases, will be fecal microbiota transplants. FMT’s are currently being studied in human clinical trials expected to be completed by 2021. ⌛️⏳💩 #letsgetthisshitmoving #gutandpsychologysyndrome #probiotics #fmt #cdiff #functionalmedicine #gutpermeability #gutmotility #holistichealth #holisticnutrition #holisticpsychiatry #science #foodasmedicine #antibiotics #gutbacteria #foodaffectsmood #ssriwithdrawal #charlizetheron #tully #standardamericandiet #dysbiosis

Actually up to 90% is made in the gut. (Caltech.edu2015) Foods rich in tryptophan are seeds, nuts, eggs, and salmon. Tryptophan turns to serotonin, but you have more chance of absorbing the tryptophan if you eat these foods with a carbohydrate like rice or oatmeal :). “You are what you eat” is an understatement. #foodaffectsmood #foodforthought #macros #eatingright #fitmom #fitness #eatinghealthy #healthyfood #healthybody #healthy #diet #weightloss
People often ask what I drink. True story.... I rarely drink plain water. Why? Because I have a continuous brewing system of kombucha on tap with a steady stream of probiotic goodness available. I take a 16 ounce glass and fill it with either my green tea booch or black tea kombucha on tap and either add a slice of fruit or drink it by itself. I do it a couple of times a day, and I feel refreshed and hydrated. My drinks have very little sugar, so I find that the tartness actually quenches my thirst. Who else drinks kombucha everyday?

Smoothies for when you’re working all day-one with greens, wild blueberries, healthy protein powder and water- the other Goop’s avocado smoothie with almond milk, (I add spinach and flax seed). Yum? No and yes, but you’re getting what you need:) #goodforyou #foodaffectsmood #greensmoothieeverymorningtostarttheday #youarewhatyoueat #choosehealthy90%ofthetime #itmakesadifferenceinyourmentalhealth #dontdisituntilyouvetriedit #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #betterthoughts
Ginger tea-just smash the ginger with the side of the knife and add hot water- great for settling tummies after a day of heavier eating, reducing inflammation, and soothing the mind. #holistichealth #alternativeremedies #feelbetter #foodaffectsmood #healthychoices #choices #healthylifestyle #begoodtoyourbody #begoodtoyourself
Gluten-free pancakes with blueberries sweet potatoes and cinnamon. Great later in the day to wind down...#comfortfood #goodforyoufood #foodaffectsmood #Serotoninenhancingfood #dontdenyyourself #enjoyyourfood #healthylifestyle #healthybalance #yummy
You know the old saying “when life gives you cabbage, make sauerkraut”...oh you haven’t heard that one 🤣? Well get on board with sauerkraut, it’s one of my top gut health foods!⠀
.⠀
For maximum probiotic benefit consume it raw to avoid killing the good bacteria. My fav simple recipe:⠀
-cooked whole wheat/lentil rotini pasta⠀
-sautéed red and yellow peppers⠀
-sautéed red onion⠀
-fav vegan sausage diced ⠀
-can of diced tomatoes⠀
-red pepper flakes⠀
Add all the above to a pot then top with sauerkraut at the end. Enjoy!⠀

I'm a big proponent of the timing of foods: when to eat after certain activities, waking up, bedtime, etc.  Most people associate this with a diet, but it's more about how foods affect my digestion and keeps my gut running smoothly.  It's  called #foodcombining and I encourage many of you to research & try it if you have digestion issues and are unsure where to start.⠀
*⠀
The bottom line is that complex or elaborate food combining can lead to digestive problems such as decreased nutrient assimilation, intestinal gas, abdominal pain, swelling, constipation, contaminated blood, and mental fog.  There are many "rules" but one I try to live by is to never combine fruit with carbohydrates (starches). Why?  Avoiding this combination minimizes fermentation, bloating, and gas.⠀
*⠀
This is your one anti-cancer rule of life.  Fruit and grain (or carbohydrates) have a similar digestion rate, so they, in turn, compete with one another.  The grain/carb wins the competition, and the fruit putrefies and ferments while it waits its turn to be digested. Examples of carbohydrates include potatoes, grains, bread, and legumes.⠀
*⠀
This of course doesn't mean not to eat them. It simply means to not eat them together.  And for those with well-functioning digestion, you can enjoy fruit with nuts. Since nuts take so long to digest, the fruit will get to digest first and, therefore, not create gas.⠀
*⠀
If you tend to have bloating & gas and don't know why it happens, try this simple method of how and when to combine foods. ⠀

There’s nothing like a simple salad to boost your energy mid day.
This one packs an antioxidant punch.

Kale is high in fiber, loaded with vitamins, and aids in digestion . It’s one of the top superfoods.

Berries are packed with antioxidants known as anthocyanins known to help with memory as well as being loaded with nutrients. Berries may also helps improve blood sugar and insulin response.

Walnuts are a great source of anti inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. .They’re also a great mood booster which comes in handy during these dreary winter months.

Day 36/80: Leg Day. Guys, it ain't all 🦄 🦋🌈... I had unrealistic expectations for myself and negative self-talk started even before I put my workout clothes on. The workout didn't bring the mood out of the tank, but at least it is DONE. My theory is that the well-intentioned "refeed" day of the nutrition program yesterday actually had something to do with my mood today...I should've stuck with the gluten-free options (duh, since I usually avoid gluten and I had 5 servings of it yesterday...). I thought since it was just 1 day that it wouldn't affect me, but instead I have another learning experience! 🙈🤷🤦 #80DayObsession #AutumnsCoachTestGroup #legday #refeeddayfail #trytryagain #foodisfuel #foodaffectsmood #hashimotos #autoimmunedisorder #hypothyroidism

Its never too early or too late to educate our children about whole foods and the impact it has on their wellbeing. 💖

The sad reality is that they are growing up with stores full of addictive toxic foods and although you may not see the results their minds, bodies and spirits DO. 
I see first hand how much our kiddies LOVE sugar. I cannot control birthday parties and friends houses but I try to be conscious enough to teach them at home about quality eating so they will be able to make the right choices alone.  Its all about the Balance!

Back to real life!  Our bodies crave more of what we give them and I’m happy to be in the driver’s seat again.  All that pizza and candy and theater popcorn was fun but I will always love veggies and messy eggs the most. 🍳 🍅 #foodaffectsmood  #poweredbyplants #sharingiscaring

Damn good documentary on Netflix! Learn how and why gluten has become an epidemic. Speaking from personal experience, I had to go to ER about a year ago from gluten intolerance/allergie. After that looked into the Paleo / Primal lifestyle and have been great ever since! Going gluten free is not about losing weight, (that's an added bonus) it's about anti inflammatory foods, healthy gut flora, ancestral health, optimal health. The FDA has lied to us for decades all to make a quick buck (millions actually) and now we have things such as #cancer, #diabetes , #heartdisease , #mentalhealth #guthealth at an all time high! Time to take a queue from our hunter gatherer ancestors. #paleo #primal #primalblueprint #marksisson #keto #ketogenicdiet #wholefoods #whole30 #bulletproof #meatandveggies #lowcarb #nocarb #processed #food #lifestyle not a #diet #lifestylechanges #antiinflammatory #guthealth #mentalhealth #live #optimal #foodaffectsmood #gutflora #mindgutconnection #whatswithwheat 💯🐒

You are able to control your mood, if that isn’t awesome then what is it?

Fueling up for decorating day with a little shopping thrown in. Food affects everything! My mood, energy, the whole works. You are what you eat. So I chose wisely with the most nutrient dense foods to fuel up right.

Feeling stuck and unhealthy is hard...working out is hard. Choose your hard! 
Nothing worth doing comes easy and with Thanksgiving a day away and one more work day to go I’m not slowing down. I’m picking up the pace and taking time for self care. Without it I would be a big ball of stress.

I’m looking forward to all the delicious food tomorrow and so grateful to be part
Of such an amazing community of people to keep me working on my healthy habits especially through the holidays.

Dinner was delicious tonight! I’m always grateful to find healthy food options when eating out especially while traveling.

I had the pleasure of talking to a group of young ladies at Anglicare last week about how food can can effect your mood, energy and hormones.

Tonight I’m delaying instant gratification for
long term success .  So instead of having grilled cheese for dinner I opted for leftovers. Meal prep saved the day again.

My new dress arrived today and I was so excited to see it fits perfect. I ordered a size smaller than I would normally because I know where I want to be and what I am capable of. Having the tools to take care of my health and fitness has made all the difference and nutrition is the biggest part. It is also one of the biggest challenges. Focus on nutrition and the results will follow.

Thanks to all my hard work, I will be feeling my best and rocking my new dress for date night Friday with my hubby.

It’s at a winery and I will be having a glass of wine 🍷 and a fabulous dinner guilt free.
Planning for splurges makes it feel like more of a treat to look forward to rather than an everyday event. Tonight I’ll enjoy my mocktail.

Fueling up after a great workout is a definite must! Clean eating doesn’t mean giving anything up. It’s all about perspective. I look at food as fuel to keep me running smooth and at my best.
I don’t look at it as what I can’t have or am restricted to, I look at all the variety that is available to me instead.
When you change the way you look at things the things you look at change.

If you or someone you know has ADHD, did you know that it's better to first try changing what you're eating and taking for vitamins, before saying yes to the Ritalin and other prescription drugs some doctors are too eager to prescribe. What many people don't know is that FOOD affects your MOOD. What you consume plays a huge role in how your brain chemistry works and the neural connections that are made.

Some important foods and vitamins/minerals to include: - Fatty fish (salmon), avocado, nuts
- B complex rich foods (or supplement) such as: eggs, milk, dark leafy greens, meats
- Magnesium is huge!! it has a calming effect and regulates the nervous system (this is something EVERYONE should be taking; only 30% of general pop. meets the minimum requirements)

Plus if you work out, you sweat more, thus losing even more magnesium). Its hard to get enough in the diet (i.e. 5 cups of spinach or chard might do it), so taking it in pill form is your best bet (magnesium glycinate is one of the best forms; avoid citrate or oxide)

Basically focusing on real food and avoiding the processed quick meals is worth skipping the pills and numerous side effects kids should never have to deal with.

You are the peanut butter to my jelly🎈 thanks for the delicious jam @pdxgoose !! I can’t wait to have it on pancakes tomorrow!! Dudes, I’ve been off my mental game this wk (hence the quietness over here). And even though I’m taking a week off from doing one of my challenges (I host fitness challenges every month for all my new friends! Email me for details!) my workouts have been on point but my food has just been...eh. 
And I 💯 percent believe my mental well being is directly related to what I’m putting in OR lacking in my diet 🥗 And at this point in my fitness and health journey, a lot of my diet and what I consume is beginning to come naturally. But I’ve been inconsistent and pretty loose-y goose-y this wk as to what goes in my mouth 👄 And I know for a FACT I could have used some more veggies (lots more!!) and proteins this week.

I just can’t believe I used to feel like this All. The. Time. 🙊 It’s not just a saying, Friends... YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.

After 5 days of “taking a break” from my workouts for my back/muscle injury, I have drastically gone down hill. My eating is WAY off track, I’ve eaten no less than 24 pieces of Halloween candy (which I can usually say no to), and now I think I have the flu. If you don’t think health and fitness are linked to your overall sense of well-being, you are out of your mind. I know I was injured and needed the break, but that break led me to feel bad about myself which led me to eat processed junk food, which led me to eat a shit ton of candy and junk, which led me to the flu. I need some green juice and superfoods- stat!! #messyhairdontcare #beingsicksucks #teacherstyle #sickandtired #foodaffectsmood #foodaffectsthebodyandbrain #blondesofig #teacherswithtattoos
