Social Studies—Food And Mood
Social StudiesWe’ve all heard the adage, “you are what you eat.” The idea being, that in order to be fit and healthy you need to eat good food. But could it be that the famous phrase is truer than we ever imagined? Study after study has revealed that what we eat often has a surprising—and very real—effect on our minds, our emotions and our behavior. And it’s not just a one-way street. Our minds also play an integral—and complex—role in determining what we eat... and why. It’s a role that’s exploited by everyone from the McDonald’s marketing department to exasperated parents trying to get their kids to eat more broccoli. Our “Social Studies” guru Robin Abrahams joins us for a look at food and mood.
