Cute title, no?  I read this article today online at TheStar.com titled “Healthy eating is about chemistry“.   It’s about how healthy foods provide our bodies with the building blocks for chemicals that stabilize our moods, blood sugar and nutritional needs, and how when we eat processed foods we are sabotaging our state of mind as well as the scale.

Interesting read.  Take a look!
