Eat Well Diary : Week One

One of my New Year resolutions was to eat better. Better in the sense that I need to eat more, more regularly, better choices and a more varied diet. I’ve recently lost weight unintentionally as I’m unfortunately prone to nausea as a side effect of Agoraphobia. I really need to nourish my body again!

My current diet (aside from it being January and us being so skint!) consists of skipping meals and only eating when I’m hungry, which isn’t often at the moment. I’ll pick and grab ‘easy’ food (crisps, biscuits, cereal) that will just settle the hunger but nowhere near enough nutrition to maintain a healthy diet.

Every time you eat is an opportunity to nourish yourself

I always start my day with my medication for Panic/Agoraphobia and vitamins. At the moment, I take Magnesium and Biotin as well as a beauty supplement I got in a previous beauty box.

I won’t get too Sciencey but Biotin is great for hair, skin and nails, and magnesium deficiencies have been shown to cause anxiety, trouble sleeping and poor digestion.

Let me know if you have any smoothie ideas or healthy, nutrient rich food ideas for me! Make sure you link your blog posts below so I can mention you if I recreate.

Love, Dannii
