Good Carbs Recipes

Unprocessed good carbs will improve your mood and sleep.

They increase a protein called tryptophan in your brain, which is a building block for both serotonin and melatonin.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that controls sleep as well as mental wellbeing, while melatonin is a hormone that promotes a regular sleep-wake cycle.

White good carbs soup is so delicious, and provides your body with good nutrition that in a healthy gut, is well-absorbed, which also promotes the production of feel-good neurotransmitters in the gut.
