We all know that you are what you eat.
If you eat nutrient-poor, unbalanced, processed food, your energetic vibration will be drastically reduced.
You will feel tired, maybe a little sad and discouraged. The people you interact with will feel your low energetic frequency (even if they don’t know what that is). You will struggle to attract the things in your life that you desire and, over time, a heavy density will grow around you.
But, if you choose nutrient-dense, balanced, fresh, gorgeous, colourful, vibrant foods, it’s like a supercharge for your energetic frequency.
You feel alive, awake, in tune with the universe, and people around you notice your glow. You find that you easily and effortlessly attract the things you most desire and the density evaporates.
Here are my top 10 foods for raising your vibration:
1. Green Leafy Vegetables
Lettuces, kale, arugula, collard greens, chard, etc., these guys are bursting with high vibration energy – you’re literally eating the energy of the sun. Get as much and as many varieties as you can.
All fresh fruits are fabulous and will boost your vibration, but berries are at the top of my list for a few reasons. They’re low in sugar which is great for people struggling with unbalanced blood sugar, which is almost everyone. They’re also super high in antioxidants which help boost your immune system and reduce inflammation.
You can sprout almost any seed, bean or grain. It’s easy to do and can be done right on your kitchen counter! Sprouts are super high in protein (up to 35% of a sprout is protein) and rich in enzymes which help your body do all of the amazing stuff your body does.
Sprouting also gives beans, seeds and grains an extra health boost by neutralizing the phytic acid in these foods. Phytic acid is an element that binds with nutrients so that your body can’t access them!
So basically the seed is Clark Kent and the sprouted seed is Superman!
4. Fresh herbs
Not only do fresh herbs make our food taste fantastic which boosts your enjoyment and energetic vibration while you eat, but many of them have powerful healing properties. For example, cilantro is an excellent detoxifier while rosemary contains lots of great antioxidants. Try different varieties and include them in your meals whenever possible.
For thousands of years people have been using spices as a delicious way to raise the energetic vibration of food. Turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, garlic and cayenne all contain powerful healing properties and help with everything from digestion to blood sugar balance and even arthritis!
6. Beans & Legumes
Beans and legumes are very high vibration foods because they’re nutrient powerhouses. The contain lots of protein, carbohydrates and fiber as well as lots of B vitamins and even iron.
Raw, unsalted nuts and seeds also make the list of high vibration foods because they’re, not only are they a great source of protein and fiber, but they also contain healthy fats like omega 3s that your body (and especially your brain) need to function properly. I often recommend raw nuts and seeds to my clients as a great, healthy mid-day snack.
8. Blue Green Algae
Yes, I’m suggesting you eat algae. Don’t be afraid. Blue green algae’s like spirulina and chlorella are among the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet which make them super high vibration. You can buy these dried at your health food store and add them to smoothies, or (if you can’t handle the taste) you can get them in tablet form and just take as directed on the label.
9. Fermented Foods
Every day we’re learning more and more about the importance of gut health to our overall well-being. Your gut (digestive system) is home to a whole ecosystem of bacteria. Some are “good” and help your body stay healthy and others are “bad” and – if allowed to overgrow – can contribute to many poor health conditions including allergies, eczema, joint pain, fibromyalgia, depression and even cancer. Naturally fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi and kombucha are teeming with the “good” bacteria you want and can help to address imbalances in that delicate ecosystem.
I love tea and I think that its many natural healing and health-promoting properties make it a very high vibration food. Green and white teas are full of powerful anti-oxidants to support your immune system and fight inflammation. Herbal teas like chamomile, valerian and passionflower are calming and can help you relax and sleep better.
I’m a nutritionist who barely talks about food.
Some people think that’s weird and I didn’t always work like this.
I used to spend hours working on meal plans for clients and posting recipes on my blog because that’s what people told me they wanted – easy meal plans and healthy recipes. But after working with clients all over the world and seeing them continue to struggle, even with pages of healthy meal plans and recipes, I realized something:
It’s not about the food!
Food is actually the easy part.
The hard part is the emotional and mental stuff that gets in the way and sets up unhealthy patterns and habits for us around food.
It’s eating when you’re stressed, bored, tired, anxious or just craving sugar or salt.
The truth is that you can’t just change your diet without changing yourself. To be truly happy and healthy you need to nourish your body AND soul.
