Anxiety Therapy with Blood Sugar Balancing Meal Plans

I teach many classes on how to balance blood sugar.  It isn’t something a person can learn in an hour or even a month, it’s an ongoing process and even I’m still learning (years later!). It is possible via balancing blood sugar to achieve a very potent form of anxiety therapy.

Many people don’t realize that one of the #1 causes of anxiety and panic attacks is blood sugar imbalance.  What makes is “anxious” is when blood sugar levels drop and the body needs to release adrenaline (epinephrine) to raise up blood glucose levels. When there are other underlying imbalances in the body, this can create the feeling of uneasiness, jitters, and even panic attacks.

Here I’m going to outline two days of example of how to eat to support the adrenals by balancing blood sugars. Adrenals – when fatigued- can be an underlying cause of hypoglycemia and other blood sugar issues. Be sure to also check out the Blood Sugar Category on the right!

DAY 1:

AM: Protein Super Smoothie

AM SNACK:Few slices of apple with a handful of sprouted almonds

LUNCH: Two soft boiled eggs & half an avocado

AFTERNOON SNACK: 1 ounce of fresh mozzarella with a small carrot

DINNER:  Cabbage soup (recipe coming!), Salmon Steak, Steamed Brocooli (buttered).

BEFORE BED SNACK: 3/4 cup plain yogurt, dressed with 1/4 c. blueberries and 2 tablespoons of fresh ground flaxseeds

DAY 2:

AM: Power Meal Pancakes (Powermeal, flax, eggs, Ningxia Red)

AM SNACK: Handful of sprouted walnuts with Ningxia Wolfberries

LUNCH: Tuna Salad

AFTERNOON SNACK: 1 hardboiled egg with a few stalks of celery

DINNER: Salad (romaine, carrots, celery, tomato, avocado), Steak, and Stir Fry Zucchini

BEFORE BED SNACK: Apple with raw almond butter

I also drink at least 70 ounces of water a day and  rest 8 hours a night. There are very important in addition to the above type of eating regimen for anxiety therapy.

    Hi Jen! I look forward to trying your power meal pancakes. Also Marie Koepke said you had a recipe for a power meal smoothie I can’t wait to try.

    What’s the amts for powermeal pancakes? I’m allergic to the milk CASEIN – not lactose – of milk products so have some trouble with much cheese & yogurt – what could I substitute – I even have trouble with the raw milk ones from my organic cow share so Dr. B has told me to skip them & use Swedish Bitters instead. Any ideas?

    I will be doing a video this week for the pancakes. 2 scoops PowerMeal, 2 tablespoons ground flax, 1 egg, and water/juice to make it liquid to pour onto the griddle.

    Stay tuned for the video!
