FOOD AS MEDICINE: Good Mood Foods!


“The beauty of Food As Medicine is that the choice to heal and promote health can begin as soon as the next meal.”

Did you miss the webinar on December 12, 2020, or want a replay?  Here you go!


Those who attended learned about:

  • Nutrients to support and maintain a good mood.
  • Plant-based foods and herbs highest in those nutrients.
  • Tips, tricks, and tools to easily create your unique good mood food and wellness lifestyle plan.

Here are some highlights of what we discussed, and related reference materials.

We had a lively and engaging Q&A during the webinar.  Here’s a link to a Q&A document that addresses questions we could not get to during the webinar because we ran out of time.

There was a very robust discussion about sugar addiction and healthier alternatives.  Here’s a short swap list for your consideration.
