Have you ever experienced butterflies in the stomach before an important meeting? Does attempting to “cure” the blues with junk food sound familiar? If so, then you are already acquainted with the connection between our moods and our digestive pathways. Indeed our brain and digestive system are linked; certain feelings and thoughts can stimulate an exaggerated stomach response while sensitized nerves in the stomach can trigger changes in the brain.

Research suggests that the smarter food choices we make the more likely those choices will enhance our mood. Choosing smart carbohydrates, healthy fats, and eating balanced meals are just a few steps we can take to boosting our daily moods.
