Feeling anxious or stressed? It might be what you had for breakfast.
Our food choices directly impact our mood, clarity, energy levels, and ability to focus. Nutrients inform our bodies how to function at the cellular level, and what we eat impacts our gut bacteria which sends chemical signals to our brain. If we don’t get the right information, our metabolic processes suffer and our health declines leading to the development of disease like arthritis, chronic inflammation, depression, anxiety, diabetes, obesity, autoimmune disease, and heart disease.
When chefs become doctors and doctors become chefs, we can literally learn to cook our way out of illness and overcome the fear and overwhelm of dietary choices by getting more personal with our kitchens. We can align our foods to feed our health and get incredible flavor and variety all at once.
