Discover the science behind the food-mood connection and how you can develop a diet that improves your state of mind
The latest research shows the connection between a healthy gut and a healthy mind. Inflammation markers are frequently found in the blood of people with anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders, proving the existence of a food-mood connection. In this follow-up to Anti-Inflammatory Eating Made Easy, nutritionist Michelle Babb shows how reducing inflammation and balancing the flora in the gut results in a happier, healthier you—not just in body, but in mind.
Drawing on what she’s learned from her most successful clients, Babb begins by explaining the science behind an anti-inflammatory eating plan before delivering 75 tasty recipes that range from very simple to easy gourmet. Featuring ingredients that were not in her previous book, Anti-Inflammatory Eating for a Happy, Healthy Brain provides you with the tools you need to create a variety of meals that will satisfy your taste buds, your microbiome, and your mood.
