"I try to grocery shop when I'm in a good mood. I find that when I'm in a bad mood, I splurge and get chocolate and more snacking foods. When I'm in a positive mood, I get more vegetables, fruits and good-for-me foods."—SHERRY L.
Note from Dr. B
Bulgur is made from wheat berries that have been partially cooked and cracked. Bulgur, a whole-grain, imparts a nutty, whole wheat flavor with plenty of nutrients, such as phosphorus and iron.
