Healthy Recipes To Support Your Mental Health

Did you know that trying new recipes and getting creative in the kitchen can be a huge boost to our mental health? Instead of stress-eating (ie. mindless snacking on unhealthy, processed foods), we can prepare foods that keep us energized, and fulfilled and are overall good for our mental health!

Here are some of our favourite recipes to try to boost our brain function and help our bodies manage through stressful times!

Grilled Salmon with Cucumber Salad – Dr. Mark Hyman
Salmon is a fantastic source of good fats that contribute to optimal brain function. Combine it with some fresh greens, and you have a meal that’s tasty and satisfying!

Kale Chips – Dr. Drew Ramsey
Kale is a nutrient-dense food containing many essential vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fats. This is a fun way to add kale to your family’s diet!

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad – Dr. Aviva Romm
Quinoa is packed full of nutrients good for the brain – fibre, iron and B vitamins. It’s a great side dish to accompany a dinner meal or great on its own for a quick lunch or snack!

Our colleague, Naturopathic Doctor Christina Bjorndal’s cookbook, The Essential Diet, has tons of great recipes that are easy to make and provide all the nutrients needed to support your mental health. Purchase “The Essential Diet: Eating for Mental Health here.
