In honor of Nutrition Month in March, Wellbeats has unveiled a new nutrition program exploring the connection between food and mood.

Whether you’re experiencing the blues or in need of a pick-me-up, food can be powerful way to improve your mood and energy. This program is led by functional nutritionists and chefs and is for anyone looking for ways to eat healthier and feel happier.

Join Wellbeats new Food and Mood program during National Nutrition Month.

In this two-week program, you will learn about the connection between the food you eat and your mood. We cover ways to combat cravings, how to best fuel your body, and how to improve your digestion. You’ll also learn tips for maintaining your energy levels.

The program begins with Wellbeats instructor Christina S. providing an overview of the connection between food and mood. You’ll learn about what’s hiding in your food and prepare a delicious chicken garlic pasta with Chef Marshall before rounding out the week with a lesson on how sugar impacts your health with Christina S. and a tutorial on the glycemic index with Wellbeats instructor Katie W.

Week two begins with a delicious, mood-boosting barley berry kale salad prepared by Chef Marshall. Christina S. then explains how to do a whole food detox—a detox that’s all about nourishment and adding whole foods to your diet rather than the traditional detox approach of removing foods. You’ll cap off the program with tips to maintain your energy levels and improve your digestion.
