Share Article

Balance is the true goal in achieving optimal energy and mood

At times, a stomach ache or allergic reaction will signal a problem your body has with certain foods. Yet, when someone feels depressed, anxiety ridden or cannot sleep, the blame is placed on exterior factors, such as work, family or lack of balance. What if what you were eating was a contributing factor or conductor of these afflictions? Whether it’s indulging in ‘comfort foods,’ emotional eating, or simply making the wrong food choices in meals, what people put into their bodies can create negative mood reactions and lead to an unbalanced lifestyle.

Vega’s new Holistic Nutritionist, Peggy Kotsopoulos explains that balance is the real goal. “A healthy balanced approach means avoiding processed foods and adding more plant-based natural health and performance foods to one’s diet. That’s why I am so delighted to be representing the Vega brand of nutritional products. From great-tasting snack bars, to ingredients for making the healthiest smoothies ever, the brand’s all natural plant-based products deliver the balance that everyone needs and boosts energy levels too.”

Kotsopoulos, author of Must Have Been Something I Ate, will be traveling throughout North America, extolling the virtues of plant-based whole foods and Vega products, as she discusses connections between what you eat, how you feel, and the various ways food impacts your life. Kotsopoulos identifies key nutrients to feeling more vibrant, as well as the right type of emotional eating to enhance your frame of mind. Honing in on underlining causes from sweet seduction to hormonal reactions, Kotsopoulos paves a way of understanding on how the body reacts to certain foods, their make-up and how to easily identify and incorporate those key nutrients into your everyday lifestyle, kicking you out of your funk.

“It’s cause and effect. Understanding what causes anxiety and depression and how you can fight them both and sleep better through simple and logical healthy food choices is what I love to talk about,” said Kotsopoulos. She discusses that in her nutritional lifestyle book and also recommends essential vitamins and minerals to put you in a positive frame of mind, give you more energy and increase your sex drive, as well as adding memory-boosting benefits to banish brain fog. Must Have Been Something I Ate is now available online and will be rolling out at retail across North America at select health stores. The book is a guide to enhance moods, transition from unhealthy eating into healthy eating, and improve your everyday lifestyle through a better understanding and improved ability to make smart choices about the food that fuels our bodies.

Kotsopoulos’ tips will help readers learn about Vega products and the many ways they can add balance, improve health and can be easily and enjoyably added to their daily routines. Kotsopoulos is on a mission to make healthier food choices mainstream for everyone.
