I guess it seems obvious, at least to me that foods affect our moods. Just think about how grumpy we get when we are to hungry, or how tired you are if you over eat, or eat junk foods.

Some days my kids come home from school and they are so spun out. They ask for candy for a quick fix, but if I get them to eat a solid snack, like soy butter and crackers I see the affect of leveling their moods.

For me, my mood starts to improve long before eating. As soon as the house starts to fill with the aroma from cooking I notice the entire family starts migrating towards the kitchen, by the time we are ready to eat they are poking their fingers in the pot :)

Nothing replaces a home-cooked meal, in my opinion. I adore cooking and setting the table with the kids, and having a happy husband walk in the door to a delicious meal.

Wow--I hadn't really thought much about the scientific connection between certain foods and your mood/mood swings. I already love apples, tea and nuts--so this is another reason to keep having them! I'll also have to look more into the supplements she mentioned. Very interesting!

I didn't know that antioxidants help keep you healthy when you're stressed. That's a good thing to know. I found out about your podcasts on gograhamgo.com, but I've always loved going to your store!

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 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.

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.

This was interesting, especially the info about the supplements. I would love to see a list created of mood boosting foods.

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.

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

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!
