Nourishing Yourself

I don't know what it is about this week but I feel out of sorts. Some say it's the moon, some say it might be the soundbath from last weekend, I am wondering if its the late night I had last week...

So yeah, I've had this kind of heaviness, gloopy feeling, I've not been able to sleep very well and last night I had nightmares that I couldn't breathe.

Yesterday I decided not to do any work because I just wasn't feeling right. Then last night I ate loads of crap foods - biscuits, bread, sugary snacks. Yep, that didn't help. I also had some wine and you can betcha that also hasn't helped. In fact, I bet you it accounts for making me feel even worse today.

So it's simple really, if you're feeling crap don't put more crap into your body! I know this, you know this. But I was in a funny old mood and sometimes we don't learn our lessons quickly. haha.

Today I've been good to myself with lots of eating healthy.

The highlight has been a chia & banana pudding which is a variation on this recipe that I saw on Tales of a Kitchen. Click the photo below for her recipe.

Even though I think chia looks like frog spawn I love eating it. It's pretty tasteless to be honest so you can flavour it with whatever as it takes it on. And the best bit is they're fricking great for your health! They contains calcium, manganese, and phosphorus, and they're a great source of healthy omega-3 fats.

I'm already starting to feel a lot better.

So remember, what you eat affects your mood so be mindful. Make sure you are eating healthy.
