Did you know that blueberries can help you cope with the after-effects of trauma? That salami can cause depression, or that boosting Vitamin D intake can help treat anxiety?

Dr. Uma Naidoo is a board-certified psychiatrist, nutrition specialist, and professionally trained chef. In The Food-Mood Connection, she draws on cutting-edge research to explain the many ways in which food contributes to our mental health, and shows how a sound diet can help treat and prevent a wide range of psychological and cognitive health issues.

Two-week meal plan and 100 recipes that use ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties, helping you reduce chronic inflammation and boost immunity.
Chronic inflammation is on the increase in our modern world, leading to common symptoms such as fatigue and joint pain, even in young people.

By swapping to a diet rich in unprocessed and anti-inflammatory ingredients you can regain control over your health and experience real change.
The recipes in this book have been created especially for their anti-inflammatory effect and, in addition, are all gluten free. Many are also vegetarian or vegan, dairy- and nut-free, making it easy to cater for the differing needs of family and friends. This delicious range of everyday meals, suitable for all occasions and members of the family, makes the journey to better health easy and enjoyable.

The ancient Greeks trained in the nude in the gymnasium and also competed in the buff in the Olympic Games – they literally had skin in the game. The ancient Greek word for gymnasium – gumnasia – means to train naked. However, the ancient Greek gyms were not just for physical training but also had dedicated spaces for intellectual exercise, for philosophy, teaching and conversation.
To train naked is to show up just as you are – no pretences, no masks, no BS. We train to compete, we practise in order to nail a presentation. We should also be training to become better human beings, to craft meaningful lives, do work that matters, and to thrive in chaos. Pierre du Plessis’s daily reflections, meditations and practices presented in this book are a call to train naked, to practise for the ultimate marathon, and to have skin in the game.
Train Naked is a curated selection of short reflections – prompts to get skin in the game – on building a meaningful life and doing work that matters. Combined with a selection of ancient practices, such as meditation, Pierre’s thoughts and ideas aim to inspire each reader to take charge, to try, to act, to learn and to do.
