A Nutritionist’s Winter Wellbeing Tips

As we reach the end of January you may be in need of a little support and motivation, so here are four simple ideas from our resident Naturopathic Nutritionist, Jade Barkett, which will have an immediate effect on your physical and mental wellbeing. Jade  provides Grace members with one to one advice and guidance, helping them break bad eating habits and understand how best to maintain a healthy dietary balance.

1. Add lemons – to everything! Your smoothies, soups, vegetables and protein. Start you morning with hot lemon water and ginger, to cleanse and settle the gut. Lemons have numerous health benefits; from aiding digestion to supporting weight loss and even freshening breath!

2. If we can make healthy food taste delicious, then preparing nutritious meals becomes a joy rather than a chore. Use lemons, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar with spices to add flavour to steamed vegetables. Focus on seasonal produce too – right now opt for apples, beetroot, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, celeriac, chicory, artichokes, kale, leeks, mushrooms, onions, parsnips, pears, spring greens, squash, swede and turnips.

3. It’s difficult to get sufficient Vitamin D during winter in the UK. Get your levels checked with a simple blood test so you can supplement accordingly. Research suggests that two thirds of people should be getting more than they are and this will largely depend on your genetic makeup – a simple DNA Fit test can teach you more about your unique needs, providing a comprehensive, personalised report which can be used to enhance your training schedule and ensure you are following a diet specific to you.

You can boost your Vitamin D levels naturally with oily fish such as salmon or mackerel (giving you 750IU/100g) and mushrooms (450IU/100g). Fortified cereals are also a source, but pay attention to ingredients as there are often additional preservatives and nasties added in. If you’re able to get 30 minutes of sun exposure a day, this will meet your daily requirements. If this is difficult (or completely out of the question!) supplement with Wild Nutrition’s Vitamin D3. D3 is the active form of the vitamin; any fortified products, or supplements containing D2 will not be as effective.

4. Don’t diet or deprive yourself! Make positive changes that you can incorporate into your lifestyle and continue doing. Master your mind set and start looking at food as something that nourishes your body, boosts your energy and brings you pleasure. Focus on crowding in the goodness, not cutting out!
