Episode 4: Mood Food

Yes, It’s True, You Are What You Eat.  

Does what we choose to eat affect our moods? And how does the Paleo Mediterranean diet represent a blending of food science, brain science, and cutting-edge neurobiology (the science of how food affects your brain’s cognitive function) to make you think, feel, and perform better? 

Jocelyne and her special podcast guest David Codney Five Star Executive Chef of the Peninsula Beverly Hills, and International Consultant for The Peninsula Brand are here to explore how a healthy diet can lead to better mental health and some of the other questions being studied in Nutritional Psychiatry.
