Mood Foodie World Challenge

"Life was my oyster but I used the wrong fork"

Oscar Wilde

Sandra Snowden Using the wrong fork does not apply in this challenge. However, eating the wrong foods will matter. The bottom line still remains that we all want to think of life as our oyster. We should because they are great for us. My research takes on a universal journey, reaching out to all nations about depression cures, culinary mood food recipes, and dining customs from around the world. Eating foods with fingers, forks and chopsticks all are welcomed at this global table.

The U.S. is blessed to have so many foods available in this country. Other countries may not have the same resources but have their own traditional and generational cures for anxiety and depression. This challenge crosses all boarders. Our findings, will help millions who are suffering on this planet.

So let's get started. What are Mood-Foods Relationships? According to, Mood-food relationship describes how a person's mood and food they eat are related. Correlation works in both directions.

The mood-food relationship describes mood determined by what you eat. The food-mood relationship describes how foods can and will determine your mood. What we drink also plays an important role to our cure.

“Be the change you want to see in the world”

Mahatma Gandhi

Each country and culture contributes to finding a cure for depression. We’re all in this together.

For example, in India, China and Spain where saffron is grown, this herb is used for depression, panic attacks, and stress. Even the flower is also eatable. Saffron in equivalent to liquid gold in both price and cure.

Over the decades we have found that many herbs included with our diet are known to help. In the South Pacific Islands for centuries, Kava Kava is a plant that is used in ceremonial drinks. It is known to calm the nervous system and helps to reduce stress and anxiety.

What a wondrous world to explore. Working together we can and will make a difference. Join with us as we take our culinary adventures and connect, countries, continents and cultures to find help for the sadness in our world. Let’s make our world smile in the 21st Century.
