Food and Happiness: Eating for optimal health and contentment
The city's a wild place to live. We all benefit from a weekend away to restore our balance and relax... but did you know that how you eat can affect your happiness too? We're not just talking eating healthy, we mean that there is a biological basis to moods and feelings... and specific foods affect how you feel!  And, let's face it, winters in this city can get a little dreary. Couldn't we all use a pick me up?!

Eating the right food is the key foundation to health and contentment. This
interactive workshop will combine winter foods with the latest science
on how food effects mood, focus, and memory.  

Led by Drew Ramsey, MD, a psychiatrist, author and farmer, we'll settle in to BLDG 92 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard to learn how our forks are connected to our feelings. He'll also share the many secrets of kale.

After a healthy dose of background info, we'll snack our way to success, taste some winter seasonal produce and make a BrainFoodRX salad that'll send us all skipping off through our week.  

Can farm fresh food help make us more calm, vibrant, and happier? Just step into the farmacy to learn more!

This program takes place at BLDG 92  the Brooklyn Navy Yard's unique exhibition and visitor center. Come early to experience the past, present and future of the Yard through BLDG 92's interactive exhibits. FREE admission, Wed-Sun, 12-6pm.

Drew Ramsey, MD, is a psychiatrist, author, and farmer. He is an assistant
clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University and one of psychiatry's
leading proponents for using dietary change to help improve mental wellness. He
is the co-founder of National Kale Day, co-author of 50 Shades of Kale (HarperWave
2013) and The Happiness Diet (Rodale 2011), and helps manage his family's 127-
acre organic farm in Indiana.
