Simple Recipes for Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue can cause so many health issues and this was the case for me.

After so many years of food allergies, digestive issues, candida, parasites and heavy metal toxicity, finally I was told I had Adrenal Fatigue. Years ago there was little to no information about this issue and I was hella confused.

It took me years to realize the following:

  1. Adrenal issues can come from not only physical stress but emotional stress too
  2. Adrenal issues worsen with gut imbalances
  3. Adrenal issues can weaken the hydrochloric acid in the stomach needed to digest protein (leaving you bloated and feeling gross).


Let’s help out those adrenals.

I increased my protein intake as the adrenals need amino acids to recover.

I increased sources of  Vitamin C too for my adrenals.

I detoxed my body and mind (hello breathing and elimination diet).

As I began to feel better, the bags under my eyes lessened and my digestive issues did get better over time.

Nothing happens over night but with the right plan, adrenal fatigue will lessen.

Here is a sample day for you. Make sure you add protein and snack throughout the day to stabilize blood sugars. 

Protein: You can add 4 ounces of high-quality protein sources to lunch or dinner. Keep in mind that the quality of your protein is extremely important.

Clean protein sources include:

Fish (wild is best; avoid fish that contain high mercury levels)
Chicken (pasture raised is best)
Turkey (pasture raised is best)
Bison (pasture raised is best)
Canned fish like sardines, wild salmon, or tuna
3 tablespoons of hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, or pumpkin seeds
Vegetarian sources (red lentils or adzuki beans)
If you have a juicer, drink 1 juice daily to alkalize, refresh, and recharge.
