The Food Mood Connection

Hi Everyone! 
We have a great events to look forward about nutrition for the beginning of November. 
Here is info on the first of three which takes place on November 7th. 
It is called The Food Mood Connection. 

Your daily food choices influence how you deal with stress and pain, experience fatigue,regulate your mood and stamina, and think. Your heredity (genes) determines your height, weight, and neurotransmitters the nerve chemicals that regulate brain and body processes. What you eat and drink dictates the activity of several neurotransmitters. Overconsuming or severely restricting specific foods or nutrients can trigger neurotransmitter imbalances that contribute to mood swings, thinking problems, food cravings, irritability, fatigue, and depression. 

Join us to review what nutrients and foods will help improve your mood.
