Today’s episode is a part 2 to the episode where I discussed the studies used to create the Mental Health goal on the app. I specifically spoke about dietary patterns and nutrients related to supporting mental health as well as how we used this information to create recipes.

On this episode I want to discuss our ability to listen to our internal organs through the cues and signals they send and look at food through a more integrative lens, giving consideration to the pleasure associated with eating and sharing meals.

We also asked our lovely newsletter subscribers who get my “eat, read, listen” every week, to talk about their experiences looking after their mental health, the barriers they face and some practical tips to integrate this knowledge into everyday life.

Today you’ll learn about:

  • Interoception
  • The beauty and pleasure of food
  • The main take-aways from the nutrition research
  • Tips and hacks from the community about how to instil these values in your day to day
