How to Feed Your Brain with Dr. Uma Naidoo

Today we’re diving into the mental health crisis in America, one food at a time.

We’ve all experienced brain fog and fatigue after eating a heavy meal, but we also know the energy and zest we feel after making great food choices.

Food is the key to exposing who we are on the inside and whether or not we’re serving our bodies with the nutrients that they need.

Our guest today is here to share what makes our brains live long and strong!
