We are slowly adjusting our family diet from simple to complex carbs. This means 100 percent whole grain, oatmeal, quinoa, brown rice, and whole grain pastas.
If you or family members suffer from anxiety or depression this is something you should strongly consider. I am about to go through my third book on battling depression and anxiety and they all say the same thing. Get off of simple carbs (processed foods) and sugar. Exercise more. The first book I read The Chemistry of Joy was very eye opening about treating depression through a change of diet, exercise, minerals and supplements. The third book on my night stand that I am about to start is Grain Brain - The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar - Your Brain's Silent Killers.
Today was the grand opening for A to Zinc in our community. A new health food store that also carries good for you foods (some even made locally) as well as a smoothie bar. I purchased some bread, muffins, and banana nut bread to try.
