The Link Between Diet, Mental Health and Addiction
Time & Location
Join us Monday, July 12, at 7:00pm EST (4:00pm PST) for a timely discussion with Dr. Kristen Allott, ND, MS, and Natasha Duarte, MS, authors of: Fuel Your Brain, Not Your Anxiety: Stop the Cycle of Worry, Fatigue and Sugar Cravings with Simple Protein-Rich Foods.
When life gets hectic, many of us turn to comfort foods to relieve stress and meet the challenges of our jobs, families, and relationships. But these foods—typically low in protein and high in sugar—can actually fuel anxiety, increase stress, and act as a roadblock to recovery. So, how can you feed your brain and not your anxiety?
In this virtual, interactive forum, you’ll discover how protein and sugar affect your emotions and energy, and learn how to make healthier food choices—at home or on the go.
Designed for those in recovery and their family and friends — along with anyone wishing to learn more about fueling the brain — our July forum will offer tools for all food traditions (vegan, vegetarian, omnivore, religious, cultural or social) that support making simple, everyday changes that can lead to a more fulfilling life.
- How protein and sugar affect your emotions and energy
- Tips and tricks to choose protein-rich foods, overcome fatigue, and restore your mental clarity.
- Concrete examples of behavioral changes that can support long-term recovery
At the conclusion of the event, attendees will have the opportunity to sign up for a FREE three-session book club to further explore the workbook: Fuel Your Brain, Not Your Anxiety. The group will meet virtually on a bi-weekly basis starting in September. Additional details on how to register will be provided during the forum.
