As 2022 marches towards us, I’m drinking more coffee to get through the shorter hours of sun and somehow a longer list of to-dos to close out the year. It’s easy to indulge in something sugary, like the quick burst from the peppermint bark your neighbor brought over, or the pumpkin spice latte that marks the holiday season. Yet when we indulge, we feel slightly energized, but then sluggish and somehow… still hungry? The real question is this: what is the impact of these foods not only on our bodies, but on our minds as well?
