3 Ways for Seasonal Eating
Seasonal changes affect us at every level. Food that is not geographically local to you will not be aligned with the rhythms of your body and energy. Eating food that is not seasonal can affect your function at every level of your day.
When most people come in to see a nutritionist their secret wish is that they will be handed a meal plan. I’m not against meal plans when they are are created thoughtfully and have flexibility. There is no such thing as a one size fits all diet. I highly recommend that you don’t waste your time and money on a meal plan that isn’t created by a professional with a background in nutrition. If they aren’t getting all up in your business asking you every question under the sun about your current diet, your poop, your food intolerances, and much more, then forget about the diet or meal plan.
We can’t all afford to have someone create a specialised plan for us so I thought I’d give you some nuggets of knowledge for free.
A Seasonal Eating Plan
The most important feedback you can get will come from your body. For the majority of us, our body’s needs will change with the seasons. If it’s so hot outside that you’re skin is melting off, chances are your body is not going to be screaming for a hot bowl of heavy stew. If it’s cold and damp outside I highly doubt your bod will be craving green smoothie.
Ignoring your body’s ever changing needs will surely lead you to having unfavourable symptoms. I’ve created a easy-to-follow chart that shows which foods are best for which season and the foods that you should probably avoid.
Is this the golden ticket for everyone? Nope, but it’s an extremely intuitive way of eating and when you understand this concept, choosing the right foods for your body will become a much more effortless process.
If you feel that you need more specific help for your diet we have options to find affordable ways to support your wellbeing.
