In recent articles I discussed how eating habits and food choices can have a profound effect not only on our physical health and well-being, but also on our mental health. The old adage, “You are what you eat,” is definitely on the mark when it comes to describing how we feel after we’ve eaten or what we choose to create for our diet.

The two most common means for this are foods that contain processed sugars and starches, as well as caffeine. Translated: Too many people start their days off with coffee and donuts. Well, then again many people finish their mid-mornings, early afternoons and late afternoons this way! Why?
