Food Can Make You Happy & A Fun Giveaway

Happy April's Fool Day! 

I'm not usually a big prankster, but I do love a good laugh (who doesn't?). So today's post is all about making you happy, and that means food too! 

Did you know that according to an article in Health Magazine "diet has tremendous effects on our short-and long-term health, especially when it comes to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease," says Dariush Mozaffarian, MD, associate professor of cardiovascular medicine at Harvard Medical School. He also adds, to "eat a variety of healthy foods, rather than focus on one magic bullet." 

Next time you're out shopping, try adding these superfoods to your grocery cart that can help to make you happy! 

And now for something really fun! 

My friends at Catching Fireflies are all about FUN and being WHIMSICAL! 

Meet team catching fireflies! 

The name catching fireflies was inspired by one of our favorite artists, but it is also a lot more... It's that nostalgic feeling you get inside when you think back to those carefree days as a child. It's finding delight in the simple pleasures that you encounter everyday. It reminds you to slow down and appreciate the blessings that surround you. It inspires you to create joy in your life and in others. At catching fireflies, we love bringing you bright smiles that'll warm your heart and home.
