Food has power to nourish your mind, supporting emotional wellness through both nutrients and pleasure. In her new book, Eat and Flourish: How Food Supports Emotional Well Being, journalist Mary Beth Albright draws on cutting-edge research to explain the connection between food and mood. She redefines emotional eating based on science, revealing how eating triggers biological responses that affect humans’ emotional states both immediately and long-term.

In conversation with chef Carla Hall, hear Albright interpret complex studies from the new field of nutritional psychology and offer straightforward suggestions for what to eat and how to eat it. Learn how certain foods help reduce the inflammation that can harm mental health; the critical relationship between the microbiome and the brain; which vitamins help restore the body during intensely emotional times; and how to develop a healthful eating pattern for life.

Albright is a writer, editor, and executive producer at the Washington Post. She was a project director and subject-matter expert for the U.S. Surgeon General and has appeared on the Food Network.

Copies of Eat and Flourish (Countryman Press) are available for purchase.
