Staples when I felt alert and physically stable.

  • Kitchari mono diet removed menstrual cramps for months, but low dopamine reward food
  • Processed foods, alliums, gums and careegenan correlated with bodily discomfort and mental dullness/irritation.
  • Variety creates dopamine reward. Rotate staples, add surprises.
  • Low carb and low sugar or intermittent fasting correlated to less mental/physical fluctuation/imbalance
  • Dietary tonics for dietary adaptation: Triphala, soupy foods, select herbal teas and possibly “superfoods” like spirulina

How do you feel mentally and physically after your meals? How is your food affecting you?
