As a singer your body is your instrument, so taking great care of your instrument is essential to produce the best voice in you.
On top of frequently sipping water between sentences during singing, make smart food choices to keep your voice in best shape. Foods are the fuel for your body & mind, so choose the best quality of foods possible. Then what are the best quality foods?
Vegetables/herbs, fruits, nuts & beans! These are packed with fibre, essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, magnesium, iron, calcium, protein & more, etc. and contain everything your body needs.
These wholesome nutrient dense(Plant based) foods keep the mucus membranes of your throat healthy and moist. Plant based foods can help you feel better, sharper and more focused with more energy for your stage performance and also into your daily life.
Organic foods are the best and you can tell if it's organic or not by looking at the PLU codes. The PLU code for Organic foods start with #9, the code for conventionally grown foods(grown with synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and fertilizers, etc.) start with #4, and the code for genetically modified(GE) foods starts with #8 but it's very rare to spot GE code #8.
Just avoid genetically modified foods at all costs and this movie, 'GMO OMG' explains so well why we need to know what we are feeding ourselves.
In the next blog, I'll talk about 'Do I require a talent to learn piano or to learn singing?'~ Cheers to You, Hun! :)
Feed yourself nutrient rich foods for your Voice, Body, Mind and Soul
