Medicinal Eating, worth a try.

Winter can leave us feeling flat and heavy. Some days we may be pushing our self through the day, you may be waking through the night or awaking in the morning un-refreshed. Although there are many reasons for this but most commonly it is that we may need to include more raw enzyme rich roods. This will support our liver, digestive system and start the long-term process of hormonal and inflammatory support.

When eating food close to nature we are provided with a majority of our nutritional needs as well as enzymes our body needs for energy production. Have you ever thought about eating food as close to nature for a day?

Some people call it plant based eating, others may call it whole food or clean eating. I like to label it 'Wellness Wednesday' of 'Medicinal Eating'

The goal for this type of eating is to break up your current eating habits and bring in some foods closer to nature. A simple way to start is by adding 4 cups of vegetables and/or salads to your meals each day. If you are currently eating only 1 cup of these foods, then start slowly with 1 extra cup per week as it can make you feel bloated as it requires more energy to digest as your digestive system can become weakened from processed foods.

Other options are adding fruit to your current salads like pear and rocket with goats' cheese and walnuts. Otherwise adding avocado to tahini and lemon as a salad dressing.
