Foods and Mood
Tuesday, August 18, 2020 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Evidence suggests that foods can help conquer moodiness and more serious problems such as anxiety and depression. Studies show a dramatic improvement in depression and hostility scores, along with physical benefits, with a plant-based diet. Inflammatory foods may trigger chemical changes in our gut and brain, whereas fiber fosters healthy gut bacteria with favorable effects in the brain. We’ll discuss mood-boosting foods and create delicious meals to support your mind and body.

This healthy cooking class is part of a series on balancing the effect of hormones on our bodies and our lives. It offers research-based nutrition and health information, whole-food, plant-based cooking demos of three recipes, handouts and recipe, and a supportive community.
