Chicken, Broccoli & Cashew Stir Fry
If you have read my previous blog post Are you tired, moody and struggling to lose weight? then you might remember that eating a fresh whole food diet is one way to support healthy cortisol levels. There are specific nutrients which are needed to support your adrenal glands and they can be depleted when there is chronic stress or we just lead a very busy lifestyle. These nutrients include B Vitamins, Magnesium, Zinc and Vitamin C.
How do these nutrients help?
Magnesium supports the stress response, energy production, decreases muscle tension and promotes sleep
B Vitamins support the nervous system, energy production and the stress response
Vitamin C supports the function of the adrenal glands and immune system
Zinc helps balance the stress response and support the immune system
This chicken, broccoli and cashew stir fry contains B Vitamins, Magnesium, Zinc and Vitamin C (plus many more nutrients) which will help support you. Enjoy!
