A friend recommended that I watch
the documentary “Happy”.
The documentary (available on Netflix) covers
what makes people happy,
in different places around the world.
Dopamine, a neurotransmitter, makes you feel great and happy.
There are few ways you can increase dopamine production in the brain. One of them is by eating certain foods (exercise is another way) .Dopamine is synthesized from tyrosine (amino acid). Consume foods rich in tyrosine or protein to boost dopamine such as fish, eggs, cheese, chicken, beef, turkey and certain fruits and vegetables.

What can be better than a warm lentil soup on a cold day. Soups are great and easy way to get our vegetables, legumes/beans (grains too) and protein. Sauté 2 cups of mirepoix ( mixture of onions, carrots, and celery; the traditional ratio is two parts onions, one part carrots, and one part celery) add 1 cup washed lentils, 4-6 cups chicken or beef broth, 1 cup chopped up tomatoes (canned tomatoes are an option too), few pieces of stewed beef and 1 Tablespoon cumin. Simmer for an hour and a half. If you choose to purée the soup, scoop out the beef first, purée and return beef back. Season with salt and pepper.

Quinoa vegetable patties. My original plan was to make quinoa salad. The quinoa turned out to be too mushy (yes, it happens to the most experienced of us) so I decided to create patties instead. I added canned beans, chopped spinach, red onions, red bell pepper, shredded cheddar cheese, eggs, some bread crumbs and of course spices. A delicious complete meal (and protein). Can serve with sliced avocado or Tzatziki sauce. 😋

Were you taught to "clean the plate" by your parents? Some people hate the idea of throwing away food in the trash can, and would rather overeat. When it's time, remind yourself that a trash can - and not your body - is where you put things you don't need anymore.
But instead of throwing away food, can you take only what you need? Or can save some of the leftovers for lunch or dinner? Have other suggestions?

Q&A on the carcinogenicity of the consumption of red meat and processed meat

Almost all foods are processed in some way or another, but the degree of processing differs. The idea is to keep the food as close to its state of origin as possible. Look at processed food as on a spectrum. Reduce the amount of red meat consumption to a minimum and stay away from processed meat.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the cancer research agency of WHO, has evaluated the carcinogenicity of the consumption of red meat and processed meat. A Working Group of 22 experts from 10 countries convened by IARC classified the consumption of red meat as probably carcinog…

We have the power to change our genes.
Epigenetics, a new field of research shows that the choices we make, from what we eat to how we respond to stress, can affect our susceptibility to certain chronic diseases. We can potentially turn genes on and off simply by providing them with information in the form of food, exercise, and even emotions.
