Healthy eating

It is no secret that the foods we eat affect how we feel. Whether excessively snacking when feeling stressed, or experiencing an increase or loss of appetite when experiencing bouts of depression or anxiety, our relationship with food can change depending on the state of our mental health. In addition, our self-esteem and body image can significantly impact our mindset towards food. Below are a variety of resources that you may find helpful in creating a healthier relationship with food.
