Mood Boosting Desserts
Fatigue, overwhelm, anxiety and burnout are signs a body is under stress. Sensitive individuals, those I like to call the "deep feelers", particularly can be vulnerable to symptoms of stress with depression.
When we feel like this, it is important (from a cognitive nutrition standpoint) to focus on foods that physically support the cells of the brain while balancing our mood hormones. This is achieved by a healthy balance of: 1. eliminating foods that destroy our mood and 2. adding foods that build and nourish the nervous and adrenal systems- both susceptible to the effects of stress.
Eliminating refined sugar is priority 1 when it comes to feeling good. Sugar increases inflammation all over the body including the brain creating brain fog, confusion, depression and anxiety.
If you are ready to ditch the sugar and improve your mood while lowering inflammation, I am here to help. If you love having something sweet with your afternoon cup of tea, I hear you and I am with you!
