Food and mood

Food and mood

Elizabeth Gilbert says that every city has its word. It’s the secret understanding of the people in that city. It’s the word that defines it, which determines the identity of most of its residents. Most fellow citizens think the same thought. What is Rome’s word? Sex. Without exception, all day long, they think only about sex. Even in the Vatican? No, their word is power. What is New York’s word? Achieve. What is Zagreb’s word? Succeed. What is your word? Your personal word? What you think, what you constantly think about? If you live in Zagreb, and “succeed” is not your word, it bounces off you, leaving no trace. If you don’t participate in that word, then you’re not fully living in it. You just feel that the city has something that doesn’t belong to you, but you can’t quite discern what it is exactly. What is Split’s word? Beauty. Enjoying the beauty of beautiful women, the beauty of the sea, the beauty of beautiful weather… The theory is twisted, unproven, but I kind of like it, says Elizabeth. I agree.

Life motivation and thought create a certain quality of energy. Such energy requires the intake of a certain type of food (energy) that nourishes that energy (motivation). That’s why there are differences in eating habits in the north, south, east… Dalmatians eat light Mediterranean food; they need light energy that allows them to enjoy beauty. Zagreb residents need more energy, which they also draw from food, to be able to succeed. In addition to this basic setup and lifestyle, which has the greatest impact on our diet and health, there are individual differences. Some foods can indeed have a significant impact. From amino acids that are part of proteins, chemical compounds called neurotransmitters are synthesized in the brain and intestines. One of them is serotonin, which affects mood. It is most abundant in the meat of animals that graze freely in pastures. But the majority (80%) is synthesized in the intestines.

That’s why it’s important to have a healthy intestinal mucosa. The best way to keep it healthy is to regularly consume kefir, sauerkraut, probiotics, and foods with a low glycemic index. Foods with a low glycemic index break down slowly, so you don’t feel strong hunger pangs, nervousness, or drowsiness. These include grapefruit, apple, cherry, orange, oats, amaranth, quinoa, beans, peas, lentils, yogurt… Make sure that good mood is produced in your stomach. Make sure you’re in the same mood as your city.
