You’ve probably heard that nutrition plays an important role in how we feel, but have you taken it to heart? If you feel crummy, I’d guess that your diet probably includes:
- Junk food (fast food, sugar, white flour, vegetable oil, processed food), or
- Foods you think are healthy, but are not (low fat meats like skinless chicken breast, or worse … no meat, soy products, grains)
Watch this five-minute video from the CheeseSlave’s online cooking class on how plenty of protein and good fats can help you be well:
Give your brain the nutrients it needs, and you will feel well and be well. The nutrients your brain needs are the same that your whole body needs for optimal functioning. I was addicted to white flour and sugar for years. I have recently ditched junk food, and I feel better than I have in more than a decade! And I’m not being “good” or exercising an iron will, I am eating real, beautiful, delicious food that just happens to be exactly what my brain and body need. I really feel like a new person, and I hope the information I share will help you too.
