We naturally alter our food choices according to the seasons and to our appetites and moods. Without paying much attention, we regularly use nutrition as a remedy: coffee in the morning to wake up and to get a good start to the day, an energy bar when we feel stressed, something sweet if we need comforting or in order to fight against a sudden loss of energy. Such habits show that what we eat influences our emotions and vice versa.
In this book, Dr Florian Ferreri and Franck Grison give a detailed explanation of the links between food and moods. They also provide some delicious recipes to make us aware that enjoyment, nutritional variety and good eating habits are important, not just for physical health but also as morale boosters.
