Food and nutrition affects our mood

Food and nutrition have been a curiosity and a passion for me for most of my life.

I believe we are what we eat (literally) and how we choose to fuel our bodies directly impacts how we feel and how we show up in all areas of our life.

The food we eat affects how we feel

Why Food & Mood Matter

So much of the diet information out there is focused on weight loss and quick fixes rather than overall health and well-being. Many fad diets even promote extreme weight loss, but these results are often unsustainable and can even be harmful to your health.

It’s time to get off the cycle of stops and starts and abandon the diet mindset. The Food and Mood Lab is not about diets, weight loss, or meal plans. Our mission is to promote curiosity about nutrition that leads to healthy food choices. How you choose to fuel your body directly impacts how you feel and how you show up in all areas of your life. Food is our body’s fuel and it’s vital to make choices that allow you to perform better, boost energy, improve focus, and reduce stress.

I believe if you start here — getting curious and increasing your understanding of how food affects your mood — it will lead to lasting change. My hope is the Food and Mood Lab will untangle the confusion around our diet culture, promote authentic conversations about the challenges of adopting a healthy lifestyle, and give you practical tools and approaches to eating healthy.

Why the Food & Mood Lab

The Food and Mood Lab is a hub for experimenting and practice. Each week, I’ll bring you tools, conversations, and demonstrations right from my own kitchen.
