FOOD + MOOD

What you eat can have a dramatic effect on how you think, the mood you are in and your level of mental alertness, as well as impacting on your motivation and overall sense of wellbeing. Feeling good comes from a diet that provides adequate amounts of complex carbohydrate at regular times (to keep blood glucose levels stable) and that contains a wide variety of protein and vitamin & mineral containing foods to support the body’s functions.
Moreover, the ability to concentrate and focus comes from the adequate supply of energy – from blood glucose – to the brain. These dishes contains foods that benefit the optimal functioning of the mind i.e. Essential fats / good quality Protein (Amino Acids), B Vitamins & Antioxidants (ACE, Selenium & Zinc).
