Adrenal Fatigue Recipes
Adrenal Fatigue Soup:
This is the famous adrenal fatigue recipe attributed originally to Dorothy S. Downey. It is high in minerals, calming, and alkalizing to your system.
- 1 16 oz can green beans
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1 medium zucchini, sliced
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 cup tomato juice
- 1 cup filtered water
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 2 Tbsp. raw honey
- 1 tsp. paprika
ingredients and simmer for one hour until vegetables are tender.
Here are two popular recipes for adrenal support. The first, Sole, is a salt suspension that you drink in the morning to help provide the trace minerals your body needs for optimum cellular function. The second is a honey and salt combo that is reported to help keep blood sugar stable overnight, increase melatonin production, and hopefully allow you to sleep better!
In a glass jar with a glass or plastic* (no metal) lid, combine:
Allow salt to dissolve into water overnight. If the salt is all dissolved in the morning, add a little more, until you reach the saturation point where no more salt will dissolve. (it's okay to leave the undissolved salt in the bottom of the jar, you can add more water later as the jar gets emptier).
To Use: Using a plastic* measuring spoon, mix 1 tsp. of Sole solution into a glass of water and drink first thing in the morning before you eat or drink anything else.
*Do not allow any metal to come in contact with the Sole water*
Honey & Sea Salt
- 1 tsp. raw honey (preferably local to you)
- pink Himalayan or celtic grey sea salt
There are several variations on this recipe, the upshot is basically a teaspoon of honey, and some sea salt sprinkled on top, taken before bed. Many people just use a spoonful of honey, though if you are dealing with adrenal fatigue, the salt will be a helpful addition specifically for the adrenal glands. The proportions are not really important, it is another one of those things you just have to experiment with to see what works best for your own body.
Breakfast seems to be the hardest meal for people with adrenal fatigue, both because the traditional breakfast foods we think of are not adrenal fatigue friendly, and because it is especially hard to get up and get going until after you have already had something good to eat.
Leftovers from dinner are a good choice, because that is typically a more protein-focused meal. This hash recipe is a bit labor-intensive for first thing in the morning, but can be very satisfying.
- 1 Tbsp. unflavored coconut oil
- 1 medium sweet potato, cubed
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 beet*, cubed
- 1 clove garlic, crushed & minced
- shiitake, maitake, crimini or other mushroom of choice
- any combination of greens: chard, kale, or spinach
- celtic sea salt to taste
- 1 or 2 eggs
- Manchego cheese, shredded
Saute sweet potato cubes, onion, raw beet, and garlic until soft. Add mushrooms. Toss in greens until wilty. Salt to taste. Crack egg on top, cover, and cook 3-4 minutes until egg is done to preference. Alternately, scramble egg before pouring in to cook omelet-style. Top with shredded manchego cheese, and serve.
*About the beet: you can use either a raw beet, or if you prefer, a pickled beet. If you use a raw one, you will saute it with the sweet potato until soft. If you choose pickled, you will just cube it and add it in after the greens, before the egg.
