5 Power Foods for Brides and Grooms

Navigating to the altar? Power up with these five eats. They’re not just delicious—they’re your trusty sidekicks for energy, focus, and that all-eyes-on-you glow as you prepare for the big “I do.”

1. Wild-Caught Salmon for Omega-3s

Picture this: a fish so mighty that it not only powers your brain but also keeps you cool as a cucumber when the wedding to-dos stack up. That’s wild-caught salmon for you, swimming with omega-3s that sharpen your focus and dial down stress. Salmon is also an easy DIY recipe!

It’s got the protein to fuel those endless errand runs, too. And let’s face it: we’re all aiming for that natural glow on our wedding day—salmon has got your back there as well. It’s pretty much the unsung hero of pre-wedding nutrition, one filet at a time.

2. Avocados for Healthy Fats

Let’s talk about avocados. These green goddesses are pretty much nature’s butter—but a heck of a lot better for you. Packing the kind of fats your body actually likes, they help keep those pre-wedding jitters in check and your energy as consistent as your love story.

Feeling snacky? Smash some avocado on toast. They’re also loaded with fibre which aids digestive health—a plus if you’re taking weight loss probiotics as part of your pre-wedding regimen. Plus, let’s be real, who doesn’t want an excuse to eat more guacamole?

3. Spinach for Iron and Vitamins

Ever think a leaf could be your sidekick? Meet spinach, the green machine that’s all about keeping you pepped up without any drama. Packed with iron to keep you from hitting a slump during wedding prep and rich in vitamins to shield you from that untimely pre-wedding cold.

You can blend into smoothies or bulk up a salad. Consider it your secret weapon for staying fuelled and focused because who needs another thing to worry about before their big day?

4. Blueberries for Antioxidants

Blueberries might just be your tastiest allies on the path to “I do,” in our totally unbiased opinion. These little bursts of sweetness are jam-packed with antioxidants, doing double duty by fighting stress and keeping you radiant. When the wedding countdown pressure mounts, these berries work like mini stress balls for your cells—except you can eat them!

Got a case of the late-afternoon fades? Skip the vending machine and grab a handful of blueberries to kick your brain back into gear. They’re nature’s nutritious candy.

5. Quinoa for All Nine Amino Acids

Quinoa isn’t just for health nuts—it’s the real deal for brides and grooms gearing up for the main event. This tiny but mighty grain is loaded with all nine essential amino acids, making it a complete protein that’s rare in the plant world. Perfect for rebuilding those worn out muscles.

It’s also easy on the stomach and keeps those hunger pangs at bay as you dash between tastings and fittings. Plus, it’s versatile enough to fit into any meal plan, which can include your guests’ side dishes as well. That’s what I call hitting two birds with one stone!
