Eating to Improve your Mood
Does food effect how you feel? By eating a sugary snack, you will get a burst of energy, but are spiking your blood sugar levels and this could effect your mood. So eating unrefined sugars and good carbs, will balance your body and stabilise your mood. There's a clear relationship between food and your state of mind. When you combine strategies for eating regularly with foods that may have a positive effect on your well-being, you can plan meals that may help you to feel better.

You will learn to cook a wide range of simple, healthy dishes using fresh and easily available ingredients. You will discover the medicinal benefits of selected herbs and spices with an explanation of the importance of certain nutrient groups, which can enhance our mood and well being.
