In this week’s episode, I invited Erin Livers, certified nutrition therapist, to come  and talk about the role food plays in our energy management and mental well being.

We discuss 1. The importance of balanced blood sugar, 2. How to use macro nutrients like Carbohydrates, Proteins and Fats to maximize your energy stores and 3. Questions about picky eaters, disease prevention and much more!

Most noteworthy, Erin reminds us that food is an integral part of our foundational health.  It provides the protein for our structures, the fat for our brain and body insulation and carbohydrates that fuel every cell that breathes life into us.  Additionally, food gives us the energy to think, move and pursue goals while also fueling our stress response. It’s all connected and fortunately, we HAVE A SAY as to what kind of support we want to give our bodies and minds!
