Nutrition plays an important role in managing anxiety by regulating neurotransmitters and blood sugar. This program focuses on foods that support your body by increasing key nutrients that we deplete in time of stress. The key focus of this plan is to increase the amount of fresh foods you eat, while not spending hours in the kitchen.
That's right, you don't need to spend hours in the kitchen daily to produce fantastic, nutritious and tasty meals that support your body.
How do we do it - we focus on easy to produce meals, we use leftovers and we use prep methods that don't tax your time.
This programme is high in magnesium, vitamin B6, iron and fiber to offer extra support during times of stress.
How it works
A done-for-you meal plan, shopping list and recipes. Everything you need to hit the ground running.
We’ve created a streamlined meal plan for you with awesome breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks. All they need to do is follow along.
The meal plan comes along with an itemized shopping list. Easily add items or check off the ones you already have at home.
We want to save you time and money by using leftovers. Cook once, and have leftovers for lunch the next day. The grocery list is smart enough not to include leftovers so you never buy more than what you need. Leftovers are shaded grey ont the mealplan.
2-Week Stress & Anxiety Support Programme
This program was created with four key nutrients in mind:
Research shows magnesium plays a role in migraines and depression. Emerging data suggests magnesium can help with chronic pain and anxiety. Many people do not reach their daily recommended intake of magnesium through diet, which is why this meal plan provides over 500 milligrams per day of magnesium from whole foods.
Vitamin B6 is effective when combined with magnesium in adults with severe stress. Women who consume more vitamin B6 are less likely to experience anxiety. A low B6 status may also increase panic attacks. Getting enough vitamin B6 through diet can support the body during stress and reduce anxiety. This plan incorporates vitamin B6 from many foods including chickpeas, nuts, bananas, and tofu.
Low iron is a known contributor to anxiety and depression. This plan contains good iron sources like tofu, lentils, and chia seeds. These iron sources are paired with foods that have vitamin C to enhance iron absorption.
Fibre is an important nutrient to reduce anxiety. It helps to balance blood sugar and feeds gut bacteria to produce short-chain fatty acids which can decrease anxiety. Fibre can be found in this plan from whole grains, legumes, seeds, and cruciferous vegetables.
