Mind = Body = Mind = Body

Reminder: You are what you eat. Living life to your fullest potential includes fuelling your body well. The mind and body affect each other. We know that if we are sick, we feel a little grumpy or sad, if we are grumpy and sad, we don't always choose the healthiest options, we might feel like sitting on the couch eating chocolate and watching Sex and the City reruns. If we eat rubbish, we feel rubbish. And so the cycle begins.

If you're half-ass eating - you're going to be half-ass performing.
Your physical health, energy levels, your immune system, your mental health, your skin, how easily you get out of bed in the morning are all affected by what you eat. A Harvard study found that the risk of depression is lower when you eat more traditional foods compared to a western diet. They also found that eating well prevents fatigue and provides sustained energy throughout the day. Is there a perfect diet? Yes, and No...you probably know that you should eat your veggies, you probably also know that it depends on your body, your lifestyle and what your needs are. It's important to listen to your body and take the time to figure out what works for you and what doesn't.

Personally, I went from Vegetarian for a long time to Paleo for a number of years to Ayurvedic and now a mix of all three. I follow the 80/20(ish) rule, meaning when I occasionally go out to a restaurant, or to visit friends or family or when I'm on holiday (around 20%), I eat pretty much whatever, I have a cocktail, a wine, dessert. Ain't no way I am giving up Fondant au chocolat, Mousse or champagne while I am living in France! But the meals I cook at home (80%) are grain-free, packet free, sugar-free and mostly plant-based. I'm also a herbal remedy junkie. Hello tea, oils and weird potions. Even the poor dog has had honey and turmeric plastered on her. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 

We all know deep down that veggies, some fruit and natural, unprocessed foods are the way to go. You should absolutely try to include those into your diet as much as possible, your brain (and your business) will thank you.
