Compassion Inspired Nutrition
How we eat and what we eat can have a powerful impact on how we feel, think and act. Nutrition affects our moods, our energy level and our outlook. Anxiety, depression, mood swings, addictions and stress are all greatly impacted by our diet, while stress interferes with digestion, metabolism and assimilation of nutrients..Mental, physical and spiritual health are all interconnected.
Self-care is an act of self-kindness. We do best with a daily rhythm of healthy eating, enjoyable movement, time for reflection or contemplation, play and connection. Our skilled professional nutritionists can help.
