It’s no secret that going shopping for jeans is a lot of work. Now imagine trying on what is undoubtedly one of the most important outfits of your life! Fun and exciting, right? You will definitely want to be fueled, energized, and feeling great for this lifetime adventure. Here are some great ideas to prepare you for this epic shopping day for your beloved wedding dress.

Kick it off right!

As the saying goes, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Don’t just skimp with a slice of toast and orange juice, compliment your whole grain carbs with some protein. Instead, pair your toast with an over easy egg and avocado spread. Maybe try some whole-grain French toast and may we suggest an all-natural jam over syrup? Another great breakfast go to is Greek yogurt. Greek yogurts have probiotics, a healthy bacteria that will promote a healthy digestive track. Let’s move on to the all-time favorite, breakfast smoothie. It’s easy, on the go and packed with micro and macro nutrients from fruits, veggies and protein. Try blending some unsweetened almond milk, vanilla protein powder, frozen berries, spinach, kale and a sprinkle of chia seeds for a whole food smoothie, and yes, it tastes just as good as it sounds!

Pack your H20

Did you know that water not only carry’s nutrients and oxygen to your cells, but being dehydrated will deprive your body of electrolytes. Most people underestimate the importance of water in the body. Water is the single most crucial nutrient for health, growth, and development. Don’t forget to bring a water bottle and stay hydrated throughout the day!

Don’t forget to eat!

We all know that on a busy day like this, with mom’s emotions running haywire and every bridesmaid saying their piece, it’s easy to get caught up and skip meals. As author Carlene Thomas writes in, The Wedding Wellness Workbook,

“Being hangry – angry and hungry – is totally a thing and it can ruin your experience”.

Make sure you are consuming enough nutrients and sustenance to carry your energy throughout the day. Which leads us to our next tip!

Lastly, pack a snack bag!

Make sure your choices are balanced and smart. Choose low-fat, healthy options like raw nuts, seeds, whole grain crackers, bananas, apples, kale chips, dried veggies, and even an all-natural nut butter. A good, nutritious diet will give you more energy, make your feel good and add to your bridal glow!
