What A Holistic Psychiatrist Eats In A Day To Ease Anxiety

Vora doesn’t always eat chicken, but when she does, it’s bone-in, skin-on. “I don’t shy away from eating the skin, which is really the most delicious and one of the most nutrient-dense parts,” she says. Most of the collagen and hyaluronic acid in chicken resides in the skin, which can nurture your gut health—and thanks to the gut-brain axis, your gut and mental health are intimately connected. 

Finally, Vora recommends “getting weirder” with your protein staples. “If I see game meats, if I see unusual meats on the menu somewhere, I’ll usually opt for that to get a different variety of nutrition,” she mentions. That said, she’s also a fan of organ meats (liver, tongue, thymus, pancreas, kidney, etc.), which are rich in B vitamins, iron, zinc, magnesium, selenium, hard-to-obtain choline, and fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K). “I eat a lot of chicken liver pâté. I try to stock it in my fridge at all times—I take about a spoonful a day,” she notes.
