Whether you want to admit it or not, the food you eat absolutely affects your mood. Alison Bladh is back on with me today sharing insight on how to boost your mood with food. Both her and I are passionate about helping women along their perimenopausal/menopausal journey and one thing that most women experience in that journey is mood swings.

We cover the gut-brain connection and how inflammation from foods we eat directly impacts our brain. We also discuss foods that boost our mood and the ones that can easily drag you down! Whether you’re already in that season of life looking for support or wanting an early start on healthy habits to support you when the time comes, you’ll want to listen in on our conversation.
