Soul food conveys memories of lived experiences, communal meals, celebrations, comfort, joy, and nutrition. Life-changing discussions are made over a meal. From Business opportunities to end-of-life ceremonies, gatherings are held with food.  Our Nutrition goal is to provide soul food tips for creating food for soul meals. We desire to assist you in identifying and preparing meals with food that builds, improves, and supports your health. Our Nutrition presentation will focus on the function and benefits of serotonin and tryptophan.

  • Anxiety

  • Irritability

  • Low energy
