Food Choices

Updated: Apr 21, 2023

I have been having an increase of questions regarding nutritional habits. As the warmer weather arrives, new produce is available at the stores. From berries to beets there is a lot of variety in the produce section. When it comes to our diet VARIETY is also important. To regulate healthy metabolism and even weight loss we need to also add various ingredients to our diet. Check out the list below. How many of these are currently in your daily routine? If less than 2, add a new one this week. Work up to the point you can check off over 70% of this list. Have fun with it!

  • Leafy greens: such as spinach, kale and Swiss chard are high in magnesium, a mineral very important for regulating hormone production.

  • Healthy fats: such as those found in nuts, seeds, and fatty fish can help support hormone production and balance.

  • Cruciferous vegetables: such as broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts contain carotenoids, vitamins C, E and K, and important minerals. Not only do these nutrients help balance hormones, they also support liver function, which is important for liver metabolism.

  • Berries: Berries are high in antioxidants that can support a healthy inflammatory process in the body, and they also protect hormone balance.

  • Whole grains: (preferably gluten-free) such as brown rice, quinoa and oats are high in fiber and help regulate normal and healthy blood sugar levels.

  • Fermented foods: such as kimchi, sauerkraut, and kefir support gut health, which is critical in supporting hormonal balance.

  • Protein: Consuming adequate amounts of clean protein helps hormone production and balance. Choose unprocessed protein sources free of antibiotics and hormone additives.
