Sustained energy and a blushing bridal glow starts with a healthy pre-wedding breakfast
full of fresh, nutritious ingredients, Meagan Rooth writes
Nourish your body, mind and spirit with clean, nutritious foods on the morning of your wedding to ensure vibrant, long-lasting energy throughout the day.
Fuelling yourself with the right breakfast will have you striding from ceremony to photoshoot to dinner to dancefloor full of radiance and enthusiasm.
Mel Swan and Dee Ogden, of Surf Coast healthy treat venture The Kindness Co, say eating properly is an important foundation for the demanding occasion.
“Focus on positive thoughts, create an uplifting and peaceful environment and choose to nourish your body with raw, alkaline foods to support a well-functioning body brimming with vitality and stamina for the big day,” they say.
“Choosing healthy, fuss-free wholefoods will help you feel fantastic and enjoy every minute.”
The clean-eating duo recommends an organic smoothie as the perfect pre-wedding breakfast, for many reasons.
Packed full of fruit, vegetables, herbs and delicious bases such as coconut water, the cool beverage is easy to sip and feels light in a nervous stomach.
Smoothies are nutrient rich, with antioxidants and plenty of fibre to help you feel fuller for longer.
“Raw foods contain the highest percentage of natural concentrated energy and life force,” they say.
“Blending fruits and vegies makes digestion easier. Within 20 minutes the nutrients are already working.”
Other options include coconut water, crunchy fresh fruit and vegetable grazing platters and bliss balls made of almonds, sunflower seeds, coconut oil and dates.
