We all remember the food pyramid that was on the poster in our classrooms growing up in grade school.  Those recommendations have changed in 20 years but we all want to know how to fuel our systems so we are healthy with loads of energy.

-Lean proteins: Chicken, lean beef, eggs, egg whites, and fish (salmon, tuna and mackerel are high in omega 3 fatty acids.  Many types of seafood are good sources of magnesium which promotes mood stabilizing and relaxation) are great sources of protein. 

-Fruits

-Beans: Often called ‘the magical fruit’, because they are rich in vitamin B6, which helps the nervous system, and immune-system function well when producing red blood cells.

Vegetables- Try to buy seasonal vegetables.  These provide you with a variety of different nutrients because you’re not eating the same veggies all the time, which gives you the most nutrients.  Good sources of B vitamins are leafy green veggies, potatoes, garlic and fish.

Whole grains- High in fiber.  Whole grains aid in digestion.  Whole grains are a slow release carbs which keeps your insulin level and feeling full.

Water- When you’re stressed, your body leaches water along with nutrients.  Your body can’t function at its peak with out an adequate amount of water (not soda!)
