What you eat directly affects the structure and function of your brain and your mood. Diets high in refined sugar are harmful to your brain because serotonin which helps regulate sleep, appetite, mood and pain is produced in your digestive system. Cereal is my guilty pleasure but I only eat frosted flakes once every couple months because of how it makes my body feel. This isn’t one of those fake healthy blogs. I’m a chef I love food more than people this is just to help you think MODERATION!

Tips to help aid in a healthy lifestyles:
