Summary

Summary

A lively and evidence-based argument that a whole-food diet is essential for good mental health

Food has power to nourish your mind, supporting emotional wellness through both nutrients and pleasure. In this groundbreaking book, journalist Mary Beth Albright draws on cutting-edge research to explain the food/mood connection, offering a lively and evidence-based argument that a whole-food diet is essential for good mental health. She redefines “emotional eating,” revealing how eating triggers biological responses that affect humans’ emotional states immediately and long-term.

Albright talks to scientists, physicians, and chefs around the world; drinks wine and kale juice while having her brain scanned; and discovers that “hanger” is a real and measurable phenomenon. Her ability to interpret complex studies from the new field of nutritional psychology, combined with straightforward suggestions for what to eat and how to eat it, make this a compelling listen.

You’ll learn how certain foods help reduce the inflammation that can harm mental health, about the critical relationship between the microbiome and the brain, which vitamins help restore the body during intensely emotional times, and how to develop a healthy eating pattern for life—with thirty-day simple kickoff plan.

Eat & Flourish is an entertaining, inspiring book for today’s world.
