Lift Your Mood with Power Food: More than 150 healthy foods and recipes to change the way you think and feel (Paperback)
In her new book, the author of The Juice Diet and Nourish lays down the law about food and mood: bad food choices sabotage our energy levels and smart choices can pick us up when we're down. In chapter one, 'The Physiology of Melancholy', Bailey looks at the physiological link between nutrition and mental well-being. In chapter two, 'Mood's Many Guises', she examines specific mind- and mood-related ailments, such as Seasonal Affective Disorder, insomnia, and PMS, and shows how these common disorders can be overcome simply and effectively through improvements in diet. Chapter Three, 'Feel Good Food', presents more than 80 unique, easy-to-follow recipes, each with a perfectly balanced nutrient profile. The book concludes with a chapter on nutritional supplements and helpful advice on the benefits of exercise and relaxation.
