Nutrition Connection

Our diet not only affects whether or not we have physical ailments, but also correlates with our mental health. Mental illnesses are very powerful and can easily begin to control one's life. However, we have to remember there are changes we can make in our favor. Taking steps to improve one's mental health can begin with what we choose to put on our plates. I would like to share with you healthy recipes and nutrition tips to increase positive eating behaviors. Here's a recipe I created that contains many of the same flavors in the traditional carrot cake, but without the highly processed ingredients!
