How does the food we eat affect our emotional wellbeing and mental health?

Our diet and food choices can have a big impact on our brain function and emotional state, according to Registered Dietician with Prairie Mountain Health Virginia Cail. Today Virginia will share her insight into why it might be better to focus on “Health Gains”, instead of “weight-loss”.
