Foodie brain

While eatting a yummy chesse sandwhich the other day I started thinking about the relationship between eatting and thinking/feeling. In amidst bites I surfed across an article about how science has discovered that what we eat often affects how our neurons behave.

This interesting article from SeedMagazine.com:

“The distinction between what is considered a food (something that your body wants or needs in order to function optimally) or a drug (something that your brain wants or needs in order to function optimally) is becoming increasingly difficult to define. Indeed, the routine use of some substances, such as stimulants and depressants, is so universal that most of us do not even consider them to be drugs, but, rather, actual food. Is coffee, tea, tobacco, alcohol, cocoa, or marijuana a nutrient or a drug?”
