BREAKFAST 🍓🍒🍌 .  We all need a quick meal on-the-go sometimes. This one fit the bill! Brown rice cakes, SunButter (sunflower seed butter), fruit, and cinnamon make a tasty combo. .  Admittedly, I usually recommend some protein and healthy fats at meals to keep you full and satisfied longer, which is where the sunbutter comes in! .  Fruit offer many vitamins and antioxidants, but are also high in natural sugars, which doesn’t keep blood sugar stable for very long. Opt for low glycemic fruit (ie berries, cherries, apples, peaches, oranges) and keep them to a minimum. You can get far more nutrient value with veggies 😉🥗🥑🥦🌶 .  What 1 change could you make for a healthier breakfast tomorrow? .  #wholefooddiet #healthyfatsaregoodforyou #sunbutter #niagarafruit #eatyourvitamins #hoalifestyle #naturopathicmedicine
It’s fruit season! 🍓🍒🍇🍅🍏 .  Here in Niagara, there is an abundance of fresh local fruit and veg available from farms and fruit stands! .  While organic produce isn’t always an option, ensuring you wash it is crucial in reducing your exposure to pesticides, herbicides, and harmful bacteria! .  Some natural-based cleaners help ensure you clean your produce well without affecting the taste or quality. .  What’s your favourite vitamin-rich fruit?  #supportlocalfarmers #fruitandveggies #naturalcleaner #fonthillwellness #mathiasfarms #lovemesomecherries #naturopathicmedicine
When you spend months studying for exams (IV therapy and prescribing exams), you need to celebrate success! .  I love to support local businesses and organic when possible!

Thanks for all your support and for keeping me sane! 😎 .  #naturopathlife #supportniagarawine #celebration_time #ivtherapy #doctoring #sunisshining #roséallday
Do you batch cook? .  This weekend, I am taking an IV therapy certification course out of town. Since I’m living out of a hotel for 3 days, I made most of my meals in advance to fuel me with healthy, nourishing food! .  Included are organic chicken, book Chou, and roasted purple sweet potatoes. The best part is that I did it all within an hour!  #hoalifestyle #walkthetalk #batchcooking #fuelyourbrain #ivtherapy

What is EVIDENCE BASED MEDICINE? .  As a Naturopathic Doctor, I was trained in using an evidence oriented approach. This means I balance the BEST AVAILABLE EVIDENCE (research supported), CLINICAL EXPERIENCE, and my PATIENT’S VALUES and preferences. By considering each of these, I can individualize the treatment and really focus on what is BEST FOR YOU! .  Ready to get your health on track? DM me or call the clinic @thehealthoverall at 905-892-1318 for more info!  #fonthillwellness #beyourbestself #naturopathicmedicine #evidencebasedmedicine #individualizedtreatment #youareworthit!
This is how we splurge!  Grass-fed burgers topped with bacon and local free-range eggs.  Happy St Paddy’s Day!  #healthnerds #fonthill
Bored with drinking regular water? Add lemon and cucumber slices to boost flavour and nutrients! .  Be sure to choose ORGANIC lemon and cucumber, since many of the nutrients we are looking for are in the rind/skin. . This drink boosts digestion, hydration, and tastes great! . What are your favourite water-infusions?
When it comes to habits, are you an “all-or-nothing” type person, or do you tend to fail when you fully restrict yourself? .  Most people believe “everything in moderation” is the best way to balance HEALTHY and INDULGENCE, but if you are an abstainer, then this sets you up for disaster! .  Read my blog post to find out whether abstaining or moderation best suit you. Comment below with your style! Here's my secret...I'm a bit of both! ;) . https://search.google.com/local/posts?q=Dr+Meghan+McNaughton,+ND&ludocid=12319053508859057477&lpsid=409245125330251223 .  #healthfulhabits #fonthill #fonthillwellnes #gretchenrubin #hoalifestyle #selfimprovements #naturopathicmedicine #mindandbodyhealth #mindandbodybalance #abstainers #moderators

Hi! I’m Dr. Meghan McNaughton, .  In case you missed it, I discuss common post-partum mood changes and what you can do to prevent or improve your mental wellness in our latest blog post. .  If you are struggling to get back to feeling yourself, we can help! .  #icymi .  http://www.healthoverall.ca/blog/do-you-have-baby-blues-or-something-more-serious-by-dr-meghan-mcnaughton #icymi #bellletstalk #mentalwellness #naturopathicmedicine #fonthillwellness #postpartumdepression #babyblues
Did you know that 5-HTP is a molecule makes tryptophan and serotonin? These are important chemicals that the brain makes in order to stabilize mood and sleep. They are targeted for the treatment of depression, anxiety, insomnia, and even certain digestive concerns! . Let’s get to the bottom of your sleep or mood concerns so you can get back to living a great life!
Check out my latest blog about mental wellness in the post-partum period.  Learn all about the signs and symptoms of concern, when to seek help, and what we can do to get you back on track!  You are not alone. We can help!
Did you know that dairy is a common food sensitivity? It causes inflammation, worsens skin symptoms, and is mucus forming. You know that chronic congestion or acne that you have? Well, it might be the dairy😫 Humans are the only mammals that continue to drink milk into adulthood, even though we weren’t designed to metabolize it. In fact, after 7 years old we make significantly less of the enzyme to break down lactose. It’s no surprise that so many people don't feel quite right when they eat dairy... . Anecdotally, when I started university, I wanted to make sure I was healthy and prevent osteoporosis, so I upped my calcium intake. I drank mostly milk, had yogurt daily, and put cheese on everything! After all...you're not a McNaughton if you don't LOVE cheese! It took a while before I discovered Naturopathic Medicine and figured out it was the dairy making me so sick. .  If you have been struggling with digestive discomfort, pain or bloating, skin rashes or acne, brain fog, etc. it is worth looking into food sensitivity testing! I know that giving up a food sensitivity is tough..but trust me when I say that you will feel an awful lot better! . Let me help you get to the root of your digestive troubles so you can be a whole new you! #digestion #dig(est)it? #fonthillwellness #hoalifestyle #naturopathicmedicine #dairyfree #foodsensitivitytesting
A healthy lifestyle is all about balance. Indulging sometimes, being more active others. You can never out-exercise a bad-diet, but that should not be the goal anyhow. I think most of you know that already 😊 . Allow yourself to enjoy life and pick and choose when it matters more/less. . Not sure wheee to go next to improve your health? I work with patients to determine diet and lifestyle factors specific to their needs and to get them back to feeling GREAT! . If you are ready to feel your best again, I can help you!  #naturopathicmedicine #healthylifestyle #fonthillwellness #pickandchoose #beyourbestself #getbacktofeelinggreat
