    Zoe Bingley-Pullin: Hormonal imbalance. How to balance hormones with food

    The role of hormones

    Hormones are chemical messengers that carry signals from one part of the body to another. Some well-known ones are insulin, melatonin, cortisol, adrenaline and testosterone, though there are over 200 altogether. They are made, stored and released by our endocrine system and it’s their job to regulate the activity of cells or organs throughout our body.

    Hormones control a variety of functions including mood, growth, appetite and weight (metabolism) and sexual development and function. Whilst we will all experience periods of natural hormonal fluctuations in our life, hormonal imbalance can also occur when the endocrine glands are not working properly. Correcting this is important as hormonal imbalances can lead to a range of serious health issues such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease to name a few.

    In this article I’ll cover tips on how to balance your hormones but firstly, let’s explore some of the early signs that your hormones may be out of whack.

    Zoe Bingley-Pullin: Sustainable eating - top tips to choosing sustainable food

    What is sustainable eating?

    Sustainable eating is about choosing foods that contribute to a healthy balanced diet while additionally having a low impact on our environment. To define it further would be to say that sustainable diets aim to ensure food security for present and future generations; protect biodiversity; respect cultures; be economically fair; optimise nourishment; plus combat malnutrition and obesity. Sustainable eating is about more than just the food itself – it’s about production, distribution, packaging and consumption.

But most of us don’t have that luxury. Instead we’re juggling jobs, home, learning, partners, parents, kids, recreation and an overflowing email inbox! Unless you’re super woman, being busy and eating well don’t usually go hand in hand. So that’s where meal planning and prepping comes to the rescue.
