It should be no surprise that, during the six months since COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, there has been a rise in the number of people facing feelings of depression and anxiety. We all know that there’s plenty to be depressed and anxious about. The world can seem like it’s falling apart around us. The CDC has even published guidelines regarding how to cope. Many of their suggestions are ones you’ve probably heard of, but one suggestion may not be what you’d expect: Eating right. That’s the topic of a new book by today’s guest, Dr. Uma Naidoo. The book, This Is Your Brain on Food, covers the connection between what we eat and how we feel, making suggestions for how changes in our diet can help us cope. Although eating right certainly won’t solve the many problems our world faces, it may be an important tool for helping us—personally—to get through it, one day at a time.
