Nutrition Hacks to help us feel happy

Serotonin, the Happy Hormone – is mostly created in our gut.  Gut Health is VERY important.  Unfortunately, many people do not have a very healthy gut.  Here are a couple quick and easy tips on how to heal your gut.

Gut Health Tip #1:  Hydration

Gut Health Tip 2:  Probiotics

Cortisol Leveling Tip 1:  Eat 3-5 meals per day

  • 7am, 10am, 12pm,2:30pm, 6pm
  • Set alarms and don’t ignore them.
  • Set aside 5 – 10 minutes
    • protein smoothie for breakfast
    • fruit and nuts for a morning snack
    • salad for lunch
    • celery & hummus for your afternoon snack
    • protein and veggies for dinner
  • This will help your blood sugar level out and cortisol levels to balance out.Helps with mood swings.

  • Take the time
  • Chew your food!  30-40x per bite. Digestion and good health begins in the mouth. 🙂

Honey, you need to chew your food because you don’t have teeth in your intestines.

Cortisol Leveling Tip 2:  Take time for yourself   

  • Allow yourself 5 minutes of space for yourself.
  • No technology, nobody else, just sit and breath.
  • This will slow down your mind and balance out the cortisol.
