This super food keeps giving and giving...
While there is alot of talk about how good Yogurt is for your gut (those amazing probiotics at work), what you don't always hear about is those same awesome probiotics are also good for reducing your stress!
By eating probiotic-rich yogurt twice a day for a month, it could help relieve anxiety and stress, a small new study suggests. Researchers from UCLA's School of Medicine in the US recruited 36 women in a study that found a twice daily yogurt habit was linked with lower levels of activity in areas of the brain responsible for emotion and pain. Also the yogurt eaters had increased activity in areas associated with decision making, the researchers said.
So next time you are feeling stressed, make your self a yogurt bowl.
I created this great seasonal recipe that is slowly becoming a fast favorite in my house. The best part about this yogurt bowl is that it can be a for a snack or desert!
