Planning a wedding is infamous for being a little bit — ok fine, a lot — chaotic. There will be late nights organizing your master wedding to-do list, weekend appointments making decisions alongside vendors you're paying a lot of money to, and of course, the occasional cry-fest because the pressure of throwing the party of your lifetime has caught up to you. It can be a very unhealthy time, filled with lack of sleep, quick bites to eat, and enough stress that you start to feel weak. But like they say, you are what you eat! So, in order to stay healthy during your wedding planning process, here are seven super foods you should add to your diet.
Throw them into a smoothie, your morning yogurt, or just eat them by the handful. They are a great source of fiber and antioxidants that help keep your mind fresh.
Whether you like them sunny-side up or just scrambled, eggs are a great source of protein and something you can eat quickly, as a snack or part of a meal.
4. Sweet Potatoes
These funny-shaped things are known as the healthiest vegetable in the land. They are great for your immune system and a great swap for the traditional baked potato.
You remember as a kid always being told to eat your broccoli, well, now it's time to hear it again. Broccoli is packed with vitamins C, A, and K. If you're not a fan of the taste, add them to a stir-fry or even roast them in the oven.
Swap out the soda and coffee for a glass of tea. Freshly brewed tea has a lot of health benefits and is known to help strengthen bones, and you guessed it, reduce stress. With so many flavors to choose from, you can try a new tea flavor every day until your wedding.
Spinach is known as the super food of all super foods. It has a ton of vitamins and calcium in it and will not only make you feel more energetic but will also help cleanse your body.
