I wanted to do a quick post about how I’m fine tuning my nutrition to match my goals in this season, so y’all have some context for my updates.
You might Recognize the Barlean’s fish oil from this spring-I’m adding it back in because it’s the best way to get my EPA. I’m also trying IdealRaw Protein (organic, non gmo, soy free, dairy free, gluten free, nothing artificial!), superfood powder, matcha, calm supplement (adrenal health), defense supplement (probiotics and immune system boost), and probiotic! (If you want to try any or all of these, you can save 10% with my referral code, MAEGAN-R8) I’m also eating homemade sauerkraut, consuming lemon ginger tea, and drinking two Turmeric Golden Lattes per day. Soon I’ll start making Kombucha and I’m sure you’ll hear about that!
As far as Food, I’m actively increasing vegetables and anti-inflammatory foods like
- Bone broth (soon)
I’m eliminating gluten (inflammatory to many, and to most with PCOS) and refined grains and sugars, reducing dairy (hello coconut coffee creamer!) and sugar down to a minimum, and being strategic and judicious with rice and oats.
So far this is all going really well, and I’ve only craved a huge greasy cheesy pizza once. Hahahaha ha. Ha. So, but seriously. I don’t believe in deprivation, so I’ll have treats, but there are tons of treats that won’t make me feel like garbage-red wine and dark chocolate once or twice a week, fo example! I’m so excited to see my energy and overall health improvement as I stick with this.
