Good nutrition is self-care because your relationship with food can create a better sense of balance in your life. Eating healthy and right is a wonderful and important form of self-care. Easier said than done, right? When there’s so many delicious options on the market (it’s all about balance).

Eating a healthy, balanced diet is one of the core elements of self-care, combining smart nutrition strategies with a healthy diet can do wonders for your body and mind. A nutritious cookbook can make for a great gift idea for yourself or someone you know who loves to experiment with food. Eating healthy can be delicious too! We love the Eat Pretty: Nutrition for Beauty, Inside and Out book by Author Jolene Hart at £7.56. Check out our blog Healthy Eating & Our Mental Health.
