I appreciated the insight in the interview (Q&A) about mood enhancing foods. I certainly feel the impact of what I consume both when I eat junk and when I eat fresh, whole foods. The scientific research was interesting, but waaaaaay over my head! I'll focus on the end results and appreciate them. Thank you. Nice project. Autumn

We take it for granted that our bodies will function with junk no matter what. Thanks for the information. Totally trying to live a better life with eating the right foods.

I definitely believe what I eat affects my moods. After listening to this podcast, I now have some more ideas of what I can do to add more nutrients and vitamins to my diet. Thanks for the information. Sure wish there was a Whole Foods closer to where I live.

Very informative. I gotta stock up in the flax seeds! I keep hearing about their health benefits, but always seem to forget them once I'm at the store...

I've been giving my 4 year old EFA supplements for his entire life and listening to this podcast reinforced the obvious. I need them too! Thank you.

Completely agree with everything said on this podcast. As a recent college grad, I've done my experimenting with living on pita chips and Swedish Fish during exam time -- to say the least, my friends weren't thrilled with my new demeanor. :) delicious nutritious food is everything.

You have to eat and drink fluids to stay balanced. I use to forget to eat solid, balanced foods and would find myself spinning out of balance throughout midday. It sounds like a slogan, but eating a great breakfast sure works for me!

I think eat healthy foods makes you feel better at least it does for me.

The Mood/Food Connection was very interesting. I have suffered from depression and anxiety for a very long time! I am going to try to eat better and take supplements to aid my prescription medications! Maintaining blood sugar levels does make sense for more stable mood and well-being! Now that the cooler temperatures are here, hot tea sounds like a wonderful benefit to feeling happier. Many thanks, Cindi

Thanks for the great information! I've heard some information here and there about certain food has influence on mood but never paid real attention to. It's good to hear "facts" other than just rumors.

Great podcast, and I enjoy the timing as well. As fall sets in and we shift down from running around during summer it is good to slow down, and commune over food!

I have a dear friend and neighbor. We always take hot soup to the other if one of us gets a cold, or the flu. A simple tradition which I believe plays a big big part in my healing.

We make it a point to have dinner and breakfast together as a family. We discuss the upcoming day in the morning, then reflect upon the day in the evening. It is a nice way to mix food and family together!
