Nutrition Happens Food for Mental Health

Building a healthy lifestyle requires attention to five main aspects of your personal health: physical, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual. The connection between food and mental health has never had more meaning than now, as we slowly emerge from a pandemic and ease into new routines and try to find a new normal. During these challenging times, we’ve all been forced out of our comfort zones which can lead to changes in our overall health.
