The intricate dance between our mood, energy levels, and the food we eat. With seasonal changes and continuous hormonal changes, there is no denying that our well-being is intimately connected to the choices we make in our daily nutrition.

Living in the Northern Hemisphere, especially while I was living in New England, I've personally experienced the winter blues, that familiar dip in mood and energy when the days grow shorter. However, even after moving 3,000 miles away from Boston to San Diego, I've come to realize that it might not just be about seasonal affective disorder or even, hormonal imbalances. Instead, it might have to do with our food choices. The food we choose to nourishing our bodies with, play a pivotal role in shaping our mood and overall wellbeing year-round.

Faced with low energy, mood swings, and a desire for more energy, I embarked on a quest for answers.

Your symptoms of mood imbalance, may be the winter blues or signs of a deeper hormonal issue. Or, it could be linked to the food you're eating or not eating. Yes, the very essence of our sustenance impacts not only our physical health but also our mental and emotional well-being.

In this podcast I introduce you to three categories of superfoods—prebiotics, probiotics, and fiber. These culinary heroes have the power to nourish our gut bacteria, influencing your mood, energy, and overall vitality. From fermented foods like kimchi and sauerkraut to the fiber-packed goodness of green peas and berries, to practical ways to incorporate these superfoods into our daily lives.

Gut health is intricately linked to your mood, after all gut is your 2nd brain. Serotonin, the 'happy chemical,' is produced in our gut, not just the brain. The food we choose to consume either nurtures our good bacteria or starves them.

By making mindful choices, you too can reclaim your energy, enhance mental clarity, and embark on a journey to feeling your absolute best.
