Revisiting Nutrition and Mental Health with Dr. Erin Ellis

We’re nearly done with our end-of-year look back at some of our favorite episodes. Today we’re looking back at our interview with Dr. Erin Ellis all about the brain / gut connection. With the holidays in full swing, now is the time to check in with our intuitive eating skills and make sure we’re eating with awareness and overall health in mind—and that includes mental health. Grab a snack and enjoy this favorite throwback!

We all know that it’s really easy to start to snack on our favorite comfort foods when we are feeling stressed. But why do we do it?

Dr. Erin Ellis joins Dr. Fedrick on this episode of Calm, Cool and Connected to shed some light on the topic of nutrition, and how it plays a role in our mental health.

• Hear why we snack when we are sad
• Find out if there is a reason we tend to reach for the “unhealthy snacks”

• Hear which foods can actually help our gut health
