Power Foods for Balancing Your Solar Plexus

Food is an important part of everyone's day and eating the right foods is always a challenge. As we focus on aligning our solar plexus we want to choose foods that are going to make us feel more empowered and align our power center. The solar plexus aligns with your metabolism and digestion which is key in getting you through your day. 

Gallstones, adrenal fatigue, eating disorders, depression and diabetes are physical signs that your solar plexus are imbalanced. You may crave sugar, caffeine or carbohydrates. You want to limit your intake of these foods as well as processed and GMO foods. The solar plexus is represented by the color yellow so yellow foods such as pineapple, corn, squash, beans, ginger and turmeric are great for balancing your power center. Try adding a few of these foods to your meals this week. Below I've included a recipe to a pineapple ginger smoothie that's a great way to start off your day.
