The Gut-Brain Connection

A lot of people start their days with cereal or oats or toast.  But did you know that those carbohydrates are probably the least beneficial way to balance your energy and your mood throughout the day?

Start your day with good fats and protein, like eggs and avocado, to nourish your brain and keep your energy and mood on an even keel.  In spite of the recent press around avoiding saturated fats, there is a lot of research which supports the necessity for good fats, such as omega 3s, to support the brain, heart, and reduce inflammation.

With good fats and protein, you're less likely to suffer from mood swings, which means you're more likely to stay friends with your co-workers!
