Food can enhance your mood

Hi bro
Many of us are fond of tasty foods. Food is the best way to fill your tummy whenever you are hungry as well as make your mood whenever you are in depression. A well decorated food can make it more attractive before you can taste it. So change your mind and make your mood with well decorated tasty food.

Re: Food can enhance your mood

I concur. But if I am depressed, I can't be bothered to fancy up my food.

If I have enough energy to fancy it up, chances are I don't need cheering up so much.

This is why I need a personal chef. Jamie? Need any work? We can't pay much but it's a good kitchen to work in. We have a popcorn machine and a potato ricer. And a porridge crock shaped like a Dalek.

Re: Food can enhance your mood

Hi Finefoods,
Agree with you and like to say to reduce depression workout regularly and eat well balanced diet plan. If you don't eat well take multivitamins regularly and limit salt and eat whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low fat dairy products more in your diet plans. Regular exercise also helps in lowering stress and depression so exercise regularly. Avoid alcohol, smoking and other stimulants and have enough sleep every day.

Depression makes me eat more. Only acute stress makes me lose my appetite (like a family disaster or something), and that never lasts long.

Finefoods.  For me it's the smell of what's cooking that can do it for me.  Onions and bacon, or a beef roast cooking is the best way of bringing me out of a not-so-good mood.

I love that smell you get when you throw onions in hot oil. Even if the recipe calls for gently sweating the onions, I'll heat the oil up hotter than it needs to be to start with, just so I get that smell, and the fabulous "pshh" noise.

Hey, we all do what we have to do to get us through the day.
