Friends! It’s Friday! I love saying that. YES! Friday! And although I tend to work on the weekends, it’s still nice to do less. But let’s take a moment and wrap up the week, because it’s important for today’s post. Mmm k?

Monday we (okay, just me really) talked about the need for REAL food recovery meals and how Blackberries and Basil are great for that! High in antioxidants, immunity, and Vitamins (Vitamin C for blackberries and K for the Basil to be exact). And it doesn’t hurt that they are in Nacho form.

Wednesday we talked about breakfast, fueling, and mylove forFIGS! They are just as good or better than bananas. High in fiber, potassium, and the more ripe the more antioxidants they contain. That’s FIGGIN awesome!

Today (Friday), I wanted to talk about my absolute favorite mineral –> MAGNESIUM! Yes, I’m a nerd and I have a favorite. But there is a darn good reason too.

I will be the first to admit that adrenal fatigue comes around more often than it should in the Cotter household. Like a wave, it washes in, washes out. And it all comes down to how we respond to stress. Um, I’m not good at responding to it, but I’m learning. One of the minerals that truly helps me during times of stress (or ANYTIME for that matter) is magnesium.

Magnesium is one of the first minerals that gets depleted in our adrenals when we are stressed or overtrained, alongside sodium. Poor lil adrenals, they are basically sucked dry. Adrenal Burnout ya’ll. Not good! (source). If our body is in overdrive (mentally or physically) than Magnesium is probably going to be missing.

In order to support our adrenals and the balance of cortisol, we need to make sure we absorb enough Magnesium in the body. Think of Magnesium as good maintenancefor those who don’t have adrenal burnout. But for those who do, magnesium is a must! It also supports immunity, healthy gut flora, and our thyroid. Do you see why I love this mineral?

I also ove natural calm for this reason. And no they didn’t pay me to say that.

So yes, we can supplement with Magnesium, but what I think is most important is to reduce stressand eat healthyfoods naturally rich in Magnesium. Eating all the foods is easy, stressing less and slowing down may be the hardest one (for me at least).

  • leafy greens
  • pumpkin seeds/sunflower seeds (most tree nuts)
  • brown rice/quinoa
  • fish (salmon andmackerelare highest)
