There is so much information out there about sleep aid and what ‘regular’ sleeping should be. What it all comes down to is nutrition. Nutrition can really affect your hormones and your hormones determine how you feel.
I was inspired by Shannon from The Glowing Fridge to talk about this product and how your nutrition can really play a role in how your hormones make you feel. Check out this unique post by Shannon about balancing your hormones with food.
Focus on Micronutrition
Micronutrients are so overlooked and they need more attention! They help you absorb all the macros that so much of the public spends their time focusing on. A limited (or nonexistent) amount of them could result in disease and illnesses. When switching to a plant based diet, you will naturally consume more micronutrients, YAY!
Although needed only in small amounts, micronutrients are essential for good health and for the proper functioning of every system in the body. When we talk about micronutrients, we are talking about vitamins and minerals. Each vitamin and mineral plays a specific role in keeping your body functioning properly.
Just like macronutrients, not all micronutrients are created equal. Sure, that orange juice with added calcium and vitamin D might sound good, but it’s also full of other junk you don’t want to be consuming. Let’s break down some basic vitamins and minerals and where the best places to find them are.
