You Are What You Eat

 I just read this great article on yahoo about probiotics found in yogurt and other fermented foods and the great effects they have on your mental state.  These fascinating "mind-altering microbes" could according to the article be used to help treat depression and cool is that?  In the article women were given 2 servings of yogurt with probiotics a day for 2 months and had decreased activity in regions of the brain linked with anxiety/depression/fear.

Here is a link to the article-

Considering most yogurt has a crazy amount of sugar in it I am going to try and add plain greek yogurt into my diet because its high in protein...maybe in protein shakes...I'm open to ideas... :)  Also many yogurts don't have live probiotics in them so make sure to check!
