Food Rx: Chinese Chicken Salad
When your energy fluctuates –when you get fatigued, are exhausted, or feel bursts and sags of energy during the day, your body is whispering to you. Energy should work for you. You should have it when you need it throughout the day, and be able to sleep when the day is done. When neither is happening, your body is whispering that something is out of balance.
