Ask Jenny: Which Foods Can Help Me Cope With Stress?

Hi Jenny - I’ve heard you mention that there are some foods that can help with stress, and I need all the help I can get! What are these foods, and how can I add them to my daily diet?
— Sam, Boston

Great question Sam, and after Mercury in Retrograde and tax season, I know we all need as much help as we can get to help us manage our stress!

When considering foods for stress management, there are two key factors to address: one, keeping your blood sugar and insulin levels stable and two, ensuring maximum nutrient density.

1) Balancing Your Blood Sugar

Aka, the science behind being ‘hangry’! A high carb and high sugar diet leads us to have high insulin levels, which means we do not burn our food for fuel, and instead store it as fat. We will also experience the blood sugar rollercoaster of highs and lows in our blood glucose levels, leaving us at times feeling wired or experiencing a sugar high, quickly followed by a crash in energy and mood. This constant swinging between high and low blood sugar causes us to release cortisol (our stress hormone), as our body considers this (quite rightly) as a dangerous event. In addition, when our cortisol levels are high this can spike our insulin levels, setting us up for a vicious cycle of high insulin/high cortisol, which can lead to weight gain, fatigue and brain fog.

A high fibre, veggie packed diet with some great quality protein and goods fats in one of the keys to regulating blood sugar balance (and therefore cortisol release). As part of my Lean and Clean Program I recommend that every meal consist of 20-30g of protein, at least 2 servings (large handfuls) of vegetables, and 1-2 servings (tablespoons) of good fats, with 3-4 meals a day, every 3-4 hours. For example:

Breakfast: Superfood Smoothie - 20g collagen powder, 1 tablespoon almond butter, 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed, 2 handfuls spinach, 1.5 cups almond milk

Lunch: Salmon and Avocado Salad

Mini Meal: Hummus and Veggie Sticks

Dinner: Zucchini Noodles with Chicken and Sugar Free Pasta Sauce

This will ensure our blood sugar levels stay stable throughout the day, whilst still giving enough time for gastric clearance (digestion of food), and ensuring we spend some time burning stored body fat for fuel.

2) Ensuring Maximum Nutrient Density

Our body’s need an incredible number of vitamins and minerals to complete even just the basic metabolic functions that keep us alive. For a healthy immune, reproductive and digestive system, not to mention great hair, skin and nails, we need to ensure that our diet is as nutrient dense as possible, and that every calorie we consume counts.

In addition to this, at times of stress our body will ‘steal’ these much needed nutrients in order to make stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. For example, magnesium, a mineral that is used in over 300 essential processes in the body ( and that our diets are woefully lacking in) is needed in high amounts to make cortisol.

Great gut health is the first step to ensuring that we do not just have adequate, but abundant vitamins and minerals to thrive, not just survive. We could be eating the healthiest diet on the planet, but if we are not absorbing the nutrients from our food our efforts are wasted. We are not what we eat, but what we absorb. Time and time again when I am reviewing my client’s lab work I see signs of malabsorption of nutrients stemming from poor gut health.

Simple ways to improve our gut health include eliminating processed foods, taking a good quality probiotic daily, including GI healing foods such as bone broth and collagen and managing our stress levels! My 28 Day Guided Gut Healing Program is designed to heal the gut and rebalance the microbiome, ensuring optimum gut health and nutrient absorption.

Once we have great gut health we can focus on nutrient density (or bang for your buck) foods! The adage ‘Eat The Rainbow’ is especially true here, as by eating a wide range of brightly colored vegetables and fruit means we are getting a diet full of anti-oxidants and phytonutrients, which are key as co-factors for our metabolic processes and to help with stress management processes.

When choosing your fruits and vegetables go for the varieties that are brightly colored, or have deeper hues - for example, deep green leafys such as spinach and kale, pink grapefruit and bright red tomatoes. Consider adding nutrient packed herbs and micro greens to your salads, and ensure adequate phytonutrients from dark brown and purple foods such as berries, purple cauliflower and broccoli, organic coffee and red wine, and my personal favorite, dark chocolate, which is also packed with stress relieving minerals calcium and magnesium!

Ask Jenny: I Work Out at 5am, So When Should I Eat Breakfast?

I’m a mom of 2 kids and work a full-time job in Boston, so 5am is the only time I get work out during the week (at the weekend I can work out mid morning). This means I do not have time to eat breakfast unless I get up at 4am (which is just not happening). What should I do?

Anne - Newton, MA

Great question Anne, and congratulations for getting in your workouts with your busy schedule and time commitments!

Fasted workouts (working out on an empty stomach) can actually be a great tool for blood sugar regulation and helping you build metabolism boosting muscle, if you use them in the right way.

Your weekly workouts (you mentioned you work out 3 times a week, Monday, Wednesday Friday), i.e. the ones you do fasted should be no more than 35-40 minutes long, and of a medium intensity (how hard you work). Good choices for these workouts could be 30 minutes of running, spinning, or a lighter weights sessions.

At the weekend, when you have eaten breakfast is the time for your more intense (harder) workouts, such as a heavier lifting session, Barry’s or Orange Theory, or a boxing workout. Just make sure you finishing eating at least an hour before working out!

The benefits of working out on an empty stomach (fasted), mean that your body has to tap into its stored carbohydrate, and then your body fat as sources of energy (your body will use the following for fuel in this order 1: alcohol, 2: stored carbs, 3: your body fat). So you will help balance your blood sugar, and get your body using fat for fuel. Hormonally you will also get a boost of growth hormone and testosterone, which is great for helping you build lean muscle.

However, fasted workouts can be challenging for your adrenal health and thyroid health, which is why I recommend only working out fasted at a medium intensity, and for those struggling with hormonal issues (high cortisol, irregular periods, adrenal fatigue) a yoga flow or brisk walk is a better option than the options listed above.

As part of my Lean and Clean Program you will receive workout suggestions personalized to your goals, schedule, available equipment and hormonal status. You can start anytime, from wherever you are in the world, and there is a $100 discount until 4/30! For more details head to:

Live Well: Daily Habits For Managing Our Body’s Healthy Inflammation Response

This post is written in partnership with New Chapter, however all opinions are my own. I only work with and recommend companies whose products I love, and I’m so excited to share these with you!

By now we know that managing our body’s inflammatory response is critical to health and longevity, but why is it so important, and how we can consider this is as part of our daily wellness routine? 

 What is an inflammatory response? 

 Not all inflammation is bad, in fact inflammation is our body’s natural defense mechanism against harmful intruders. Upon detection of a threat (for example a cut on your finger) cellular chemical signalers trigger a response from our immune system to help deal with the danger. Acute inflammation is a natural and healthy part of our immune system, and usually subsides within a number of days. 

 Chronic (or systemic) inflammation is different. It is a low level, constant activation of the immune system that can contribute to the development of disease. The body may detect what it considers as internal threats such as toxins and food particles in the bloodstream, and signal for the immune system to set off a response, much like in the case of acute inflammation. However, if there is no threat to respond to the immune system may start to attack the body’s healthy tissues which can lead to auto-immune conditions and other chronic diseases. 

Four Easy Ways to Manage Inflammation 

 1)    Eat A Whole Foods Based Diet

By eating a non-processed, whole foods based diet we provide our body with foods that it recognizes as fuel, not as a threat! Our GI tract is the one of the first lines of defense for our immune system, and overly processed, chemically laden foods can damage the integrity of its lining, causing food particles to get into the bloodstream and set off a damaging immune response. Ensure you are getting a wide range of antioxidant rich, rainbow colored fruits and vegetables in your diet to help manage inflammation on a daily basis and boost overall health and wellbeing. I eat at least 7 servings of fruit and vegetables a day and try to get in as many different colors as possible for maximum micronutrient benefits! 

2) Limit Exposure to Toxins 

Inflammation causing toxins don’t just get into our bodies through food, our household and personal care products can be a source of inflammation causing chemicals too. Consider non-toxic natural household cleaning products and do the same for your personal care products. Start by switching out your deodorant, body lotion and lip balm as these go on large and absorbent areas of the skin and have the most potential to be damaging to health. Clean skincare and make-up products have come a long way from when I started to use them over a decade ago, and they now easily rival their conventional counterparts. 

IMG_6615_Facetune_06-03-2019-06-07-32.jpg

3) Nature’s Anti-Inflammatories 

Herbs such as ginger and turmeric have been used for centuries as gentle pain relievers and as a way to naturally mitigate inflammation in the body - there are over 12000 peer-reviewed studies on the benefits of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric! Adding one or both to soups, stews, salad dressings and hot drinks is a simple and delicious way to boost your diet and overall health and wellbeing, and I love to make a nourishing and soothing Golden Milk Latte with grated ginger and turmeric before bed. 

4) Add Zyflamend Whole Body To Your Daily Supplement Regimen

New Chapter’s Zyflamend Whole Body helps your body to balance a healthy inflammation response at the cellular level. In-vitro studies have shown that Zyflamend mitigates part of the signaling process that triggers the body's inflammatory response, meaning it can help prevent the damaging inflammatory cascade that can be present in chronic inflammation.

Not only does Zyflamend Whole Body contain a blend of 10 herbs that help manage inflammation and relieve minor pain and soreness (such as turmeric, rosemary, green tea and ginger), but pre-clinical testing shows that this combination of ingredients shows a greater inhibitory effect than the calculated sum of its parts. 

It takes a lot for me to add another supplement to my daily regimen but since taking Zyflamend Whole Body I have noticed a considerable decrease in joint and muscular aches and pains, and as I love to work out at least 5 days a week it has become an integral part of my morning routine!

Eat Beautiful: Brains and Beauty Superfood Smoothie

I'm naming today's breakfast my 'Brains and Beauty Superfood Smoothie' as it is packed full of polyphenols, the anti-antioxidants that help minimize free radical damage to your cells. 

These free radicals are one of the major causes of skin aging, and cause systemic inflammation, which as we know can effect everything from gut health, hormone balance and cognitive function. Polyphenols are also a great source of BDNF - Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor, a protein that helps you grow new brain cells. 

Polyphenols are mostly found in dark red, purple and brown foods, and blueberries and cacao have some of the highest amounts. Pair this smoothie with a cup of organic, low acid coffee for even more anti-oxidant action! 

Brains and Beauty Superfood Smoothie

* 2 tablespoons hemp seeds 
*1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
*1 cup spinach (fresh or frozen)
*1 cup cauliflower rice (frozen)
*1 tablespoon cacao powder (I love @terrasoul) 
*1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
*1 tablespoon coconut cream
*1/4 tablespoon cinnamon
*1.5 cups coconut milk 

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Top with cacao nibs for some extra crunch!

Get Your Great Fats With New Chapter’s Wholemega Whole Fish Oil

This post is written in partnership with New Chapter, however all opinions are my own. I only work with and recommend companies whose products I love, and I’m so excited to share these with you!

 Good fats? Consider these great fats! 

We need omega fatty acids on a cellular level for optimal health and wellbeing. Every cell in our body has a lipid bilayer, which is a cellular membrane containing everything the cell needs for nutrient and energy transfer and for communication. To keep the integrity of the structure of the cell wall we need a balance of fats in our body, including Omega’s 3, 6, 7 and 9. 

These great fats are also needed for brain health, nerve health, joint health, eye health, mood and cognitive function, and cardiovascular health. High levels of omega 3 fats in tissue has even been shown to help against environmental free radical exposure. Omegas are also a huge part of the body’s inflammatory response and work as signalling molecules to ensure a balanced inflammatory response. Inflammation is the root cause of most chronic disease, and we should all be prioritizing inflammation modulating foods, supplements and lifestyle behaviours as one of the keys to optimum health. 

 Omega’s 3 and 6 are what we all know as Essential Fatty Acids, or EFA’s, meaning that they are not made directly by the body. We need to be consuming them in our diet to ensure adequate amounts for all the numerous metabolic processes they are needed for. Great food sources of essential fatty acids include oily fish, chia seeds, flax seeds, avocados and leafy greens. 

IMG_6511.JPG


When we eat plant based foods with Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids by consuming them in the forms of Linoleic Acid and Alpha Linolenic acid. To convert these into EPA and DHA, which are the most beneficial forms of Omegas for health, our body has to go through a complicated and rather inefficient enzymatic process which can use up valuable micronutrients. 

Further down this enzymatic chain, EFA’s can be converted to eicosanoids, which are a vital part of our immune and inflammation response.

 Even when we consume Omega 6 and Omega 3 rich foods (such as oily fish like salmon and mackerel) we would need to be eating them at least 3 times a week for levels beneficial for health, which is something I know neither my clients nor I do on a regular basis! 

 I recommend that all my clients take a daily fish oil supplement such as New Chapter’s Wholemega Whole Fish Oil as I know it will support their health goals. When we supplement with a good quality fish oil, such as Wholemega Whole Fish Oil, we are getting the EPA, DHA and other Omega 3’s, 5’s, 7’s and 9’s in their fully converted state, meaning we do not need to use precious enzymes and other co-factors such as vitamins and minerals (which may be needed elsewhere in the body) to convert them to their most effective form. When taken daily, a week of Wholemega actually provides Omegas equivalent to 3 servings of wild salmon, which is right on target with recommendations. 

IMG_6527.JPG

New Chapter’s Wholemega Whole Fish Oil comes from 100% wild caught Alaskan Salmon and includes 17 omega fatty acids (including Omega-3s EPA and DHA, and Omega 9s which most people do not consume enough of in their diets), Vitamin D3, and Astaxanthin, an antioxidant. What I particularly love about Wholemega is that it’s 100% sustainably caught Wild Alaskan Salmon oil, so I know that it’s an ocean-friendly choice as well as a healthy one. 

And whilst I highly recommend supplementing with New Chapter’s Wholemega Whole Fish Oil to ensure optimum levels of essential fatty acids, we can still benefit our health and vitality by doing double duty and adding great fat boosting and inflammation modulation foods to our diet! And even better, they can taste delicious too! 

Wild Alaskan Salmon Salad with New Chapter Fermented Turmeric Tahini Probiotic Dressing 

For the salad:

·      1 fillet wild Alaskan salmon, grilled

·      2 cups leafy greens 

·      1 cup finely sliced beets

·      1 cup pickled carrots

·      ½ cup toasted pumpkin seeds 

 

For the dressing:

 ·      1 serving New Chapter Fermented Turmeric Booster Powder

·      2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut yoghurt

·      Juice of half a lemon

·      Pinch Himalayan salt

·      Pinch black pepper 

Place all dressing ingredients in a mason jar and shake well. Place all salad ingredients in a large bowl and dress, ensuring all ingredients are coated thoroughly.

Valentine’s Day Tahini and Goji Berry Bites with New Chapter’s Fermented Maca Booster Powder

Not just for Valentine’s Day, these delicious Tahini and Goji Berry Bites with New Chapter’s Fermented Maca Booster Powder are packed full of great fats, plant based protein and gut health boosting fibre, combined with the energy and vitality boosting benefits of my favorite New Chapter Fermented Maca Booster Powder.

IMG_6329.JPG


 They are so easy to make with no cooking required, and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week, and the freezer for up to a month, although they get eaten within days (sometimes hours) in my house! This recipe is super flexible too and you can add chopped nuts, coconut butter and even cacao nibs depending on what you have in the pantry at home.

I love to use tahini as a great alternative to regular nut butter - in my opinion it is such an unsung superfood hero! It’s packed full of Omega 6 fatty acids, a group of essential fats that you can only get from dietary sources, that help ensure a healthy inflammatory response and keep your cell walls permeable for energy transfer and cellular communication. It is also an amazing source of some of the much-needed minerals that our western day diets are woefully lacking in, including zinc, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, manganese and iron.

 Hemp seeds provide plant based protein and help to balance the higher fat content of this nutrient dense snack. Hemp seeds are an great source of Gamma Linoleic Acid or GLA, one of the active forms of Omega 6 fatty acids that is rarely found in other food sources. GLA is used by the body to produce prostaglandins that help regulate immune function, manage inflammation, and it can help to alleviate PMS and menopause symptoms.

 Ground flaxseed gives this superfood snack some crunch and texture, whilst helping boost digestion and detoxification thanks in part to its high concentration of lignans, compounds that act like a sponge whilst moving through the GI tract.

 Antioxidant and phytochemical rich goji berries add a pop of colour and sweetness whilst still keeping this recipe low in fructose and carbohydrates, and coconut oil adds satiating, energy rich medium chain triglycerides that help ensure a heathy cellular membrane.

 Rounding off this superstar line up of health boosting whole foods is New Chapter’s Fermented Maca Booster Powder, which I keep on my countertop at all times to add to lattes, smoothies and healthy snacks such as this one.

 New Chapter’s patented fermentation process uses clinically studied probiotics that ensures my body can use and assimilate all of the energy, endurance and vitality boosting benefits of maca powder at a cellular level, whilst making this booster powder easily digestible and absorbable (remember, you are not what you eat, but what you absorb). *

 And as Maca was traditionally used as an aphrodisiac, it’s the perfect addition to any Valentine’s Day recipe!

 Tahini and Goji Berry Bites with New Chapter’s Fermented Maca Booster Powder

·       ½ cup coconut oil

·       ½ cup tahini

·       ¼ cup hemp seeds

·       ¼ cup ground flaxseed

·       10 drops stevia or 1 teaspoon raw honey

·       ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

·       ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

·       ¼ teaspoon Himalayan salt

·       ¼ cup goji berries

·       1 serving New Chapter Fermented Maca Booster Powder

Boil 1 cup of water, and soak goji berries whilst preparing the rest of the ingredients.

Melt together the coconut oil and tahini in a pan on the stove top, and stir until fully combined. Stir in the hemp seeds, ground flaxseed, sweetener of choice, vanilla, cinnamon, Himalayan salt and New Chapter Fermented Maca Booster Powder, then drain the goji berries and stir these into the mixture too.


Line a freezer safe dish (I used an 8.1 x 5.9 x 11.9 inches) with parchment paper, or use an ice cube tray (like the cute heart shaped one I used in honour of Valentine’s Day), then pour in the mixture. Freeze for a minimum of 4 hours (if you can wait that long), then remove from the freezer and slice if needed.

Gut Healing Smoothie: Chocolate Chocolate Chip

I'm obsessed with the health benefits of cacao, and let's be real, who doesn't want to have chocolate for breakfast? 

Raw, organic cacao is packed full of antioxidants and polyphenols that can protect us from environmental toxins, contains flavonoids that reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, is rich in calming magnesium and mood-boosting theobromine, and can even raise levels of our feel-good neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. And as for gut health? Well, a recent study showed that eating cacao can even increase the number of good bacteria in our microbiome! 

I've paired organic cacao with blood sugar stabilizing cinnamon and a pinch of adrenal boosting Himalayan salt, which not only ramps up the health benefits of this smoothie but makes it taste incredible too...

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Gut Healing Smoothie 

  • 20g collagen powder

  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder

  • 1 tablespoon cacao nibs

  • 1 tablespoon crunchy almond butter

  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed

  • 1 cup spinach

  • ½ zucchini

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1.5 cups almond milk

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
