It may be true that food is not the only factor that affects our mood. It is, however, one over which we personally have greater control.
Our eating and our feelings are much more intertwined than most people realize. Local expert, Lucinda Tyrrell, talks about the relationship of food to mood.

Tyrrell further explains the relationship to nutrition and hormone production.
As part of its Co-op Cooking Class series, BriarPatch Community Market is sponsoring a class taught by Lucinda Tyrrell,
that will teach basic principles of eating for a good mood, titled, “Eat Yourself Happy: Good Food for a Good Mood.”
A full dinner will be prepared and served at the class:
Serene Salad with a simple vinaigrette and mixed seed topping,
Red Lentil and Sweet Potato Dhal, a complex carbohydrate and protein dish to keep blood levels stable.
And for dessert, Vegan Carrot Pineapple Cake with Coconut Frosting
The class will be held on Thursday, January 17 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at In the Kitchen, located at 648 Zion Street in Nevada City.
