Food, the best recipe for a therapy

Couch
Among all of food’s incredible attributes, from medicinal to revitalising, Food can also be just as revealing as lying on a psychologist’s couch. Not only can food reveal your personality, it can even offer the comfort of a thousand words.

No need to talk or express what or how we feel; the way we eat, the way we choose our meal, the ingredients we crave, our reaction to the contents of a fridge; or even whether or not we jump on the bread at a restaurant waiting for the meal to be served; our gastronomical habits tell their  own little story about who we are.

And as the couch we lay ourselves down on is an integral part of our mental therapy, enjoying a meal will revitalise the spirit just as it will nurture the body… be it through the pleasant bitterness of a piece of chocolate or the calming leisure of a traditional Sunday dish.
