Wholesome meals for a cheerful mind
(The Magazine Plus Editorial): – San Francisco, California, June 22, 2021 (Issuewire.com) – The Covid-19 pandemic caused an unprecedented decline in mental health. Our children are hardest hit.
School closings have had a dramatic impact on children’s mental health. A major stressor has been the loss of family services normally provided by local school districts. Many families rely on the meals schools provide to feed their children and on having a safe, supervised environment while their parents were at work.
The endless hours that the children spent in isolation from their schoolmates caused depression, anxiety and fear of the future in many children. All activities that provide a foundation for growth, fun, relationships, exercise, and self-expression have been canceled.
Here at Yolo Farmstand we want to help you and your family emphasize that healthy eating, including organic nuts, fruits, and vegetables, is key to both ‘mental and physical well-being.
Emotions can regulate food, and food can regulate emotions. As the saying goes: “You are what you eat” in the sense that mood and food are often reflections of each other. “
Children who do not have a diet rich in nuts, fruits and vegetables tend to be overweight. If your calories are mostly from processed or fast food, sugary drinks, and snacks, you are likely overweight.
A randomized controlled trial published in the journal PLOS ONE
“Finds that a group of young adults experienced a significant decrease in symptoms of depression after following a Mediterranean diet for three weeks. Participants saw their depression “score” drop from the “moderate” range to the “normal” range, and they also reported lower levels of anxiety and stress. “
Their diet included daily servings of nuts and seeds, as well as fruits, vegetables, fish, healthy oils and fats.
Eating lots of fruits and nuts has been linked to a 30 to 40% lower risk of depression. Researchers have found that nuts benefit the brain by improving cognition, memory, memory, and calmness. A new study found that consuming nuts regularly boosted brain waves.
Including nuts, fruits and vegetables, berries, citrus fruits, and leafy green vegetables in your daily diet can encourage optimism and reduce stress.
A whole new field of nutritional psychiatry is emerging that is a mix of nutrition, dietetics, and psychology, using whole foods and nutrients to improve mental wellbeing.
“What is good for the intestines is also good for mental health,” summarized one specialist. Be your own researcher. Add some of these foods to your whole family’s daily diet and see how everyone’s energy and mood improve!
