General info

Serves: 1
Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

Feeling stressed and angry? When we are under stress, our adrenal glands require the right nutrients to function at their best. Protect your body from stress with plenty of vitamin C-rich foods – your adrenals store and use vast amounts of vitamin C and magnesium.

Add in plenty of antioxidant vitamin C-rich cherries or strawberries and a spoonful of superfood goji berries, plus the handful of spinach leaves provides B vitamins and magnesium, which are essential for adrenal health.

Keep your blood sugar balanced by including some healthy fat and protein with the addition of avocado. You could also add a scoop of protein powder for further blood sugar support.

Adding protein prevents a dip in energy levels, stopping you from feeling irritable, moody and ready to explode. For a super calming boost, switch the water for cold chamomile tea.
