The dinner menu lists “our home-grown items”: broccolini, baby carrots, blueberries, figs, snap peas and heirloom tomatoes.
Here is a link to Julia Rucklidge’s TEDX talk: The surprisingly dramatic role of nutrition in mental health. I love how she opens with:
what I’m going to share today may sound as radical as hand-washing sounded to a mid-19th century doctor and yet it is equally scientific. It is the simple idea that optimizing nutrition is a safe and viable way to avoid, treat or lessen mental illness. Nutrition matters. Poor nutrition is a significant and modifiable risk factor for the development of mental illness
Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods on earth! Here is some of the egg research:
Skipping breakfast can increase depression, anxiety and stress levels and eggs can be part of a healthy breakfast. “A cross-sectional investigation of depressive, anxiety, and stress symptoms and health-behavior participation in Australian university students”
Eggs are an excellent source of choline. Research shows that plasma choline levels are related to anxiety levels
The lowest choline quintile was significantly associated with high anxiety levels.
Results from an October 2014 study in Behavioral Brain Research suggest that
high choline intake during early development can prevent or dramatically reduce deficits in social behavior and anxiety in an autistic mouse model
An article on Webmd, Egg-Rich Diet Not Harmful in Type 2 Diabetes suggest that
eating two eggs per day, 6 days a week can be a safe part of a healthy diet for people with type 2 (that’s 12 eggs a week – yeah!)

From weeks 4 to 8, curcumin was significantly more effective than placebo in improving several mood-related symptoms

I mentioned a number of studies related to PTSD symptoms. Here they are:
- Lower EPA (one of the omega-3 fatty acids) levels are associated with the severity of clinical symptoms in PTSD.
- One factor could be low levels of vitamin D
- Another factor in PTSD could be cortisol and DHEA
- And a new study found a connection between PTSD and low HDL and high triglycerides
