The Happy Kitchen: Good Mood Food: Joyful recipes to keep you calm, boost your energy and help you sleep
Allende, Isabel
$24.00
Isabel Allende evokes the magnificent landscapes of her country; a charming, idiosyncratic Chilean people with a violent history and an indomitable spirit, and the politics, religion, myth, and magic of her homeland that she carries with her even today. The book circles around two life-changing moments. The assassination of her uncle Salvador Allende Gossens on September 11, 1973, sent her into exile and transformed her into a literary writer. And the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, on her adopted homeland, the United States, brought forth an overdue acknowledgment that Allende had indeed left home. My Invented Country, mimicking the workings of memory itself, ranges back and forth across that distance between past and present lives. It speaks compellingly to immigrants and to all of us who try to retain a coherent inner life in a world full of contradictions"Did you know that your gut is responsible for producing around 90% of your serotonin, the chemical which makes you feel good? The Happy Kitchen is a joyous bible of good mood food, packed with recipes and meal planners to keep us calm, boost energy and help us sleep. Since suffering her last serious bout of depression in 2011, Rachel Kelly has evolved a broad holistic approach to staying well, but at the heart of her recovery has been changing the way she eats. Over the past five years, she has worked with nutritionist and food doctor Alice Mackintosh. Together, they have built up a repertoire of recipes that target particular symptoms, from insomnia and mood swings to stress and exhaustion. In chapters ranging from Steady Energy and Beating the Blues to Finding Comfort, they put all the theory into practice, setting out how you can incorporate it into your daily life. Along with delicious new recipes and meal planners, there is a toolkit of Super Good Mood Foods, as well as 'Science Bites' scattered through the text in which Alice explains the biology and chemistry of nutrition. When you're feeling fragile it can be hard to overhaul your diet; it is one more thing on your 'to do' list. But as Rachel has learnt, it is small steps that make a difference. Alice's recipes are easy to follow, and soothe and gladden the soul"--
