Cat almost in the hat (at least my husband wore her felted woolen house as a hat). This little piece was not cheap, but is definitely worth every penny, as all quality stuff so to say. Kids drag her like this around the house or to their bed and she does not mind. Priceless ✨

Soup of the day - Kabocha Squash purée.

One of my favorite ones in colder seasons.

Ingredients:
Kabocha squash
Onion
Coconut cream
Curry
Coriander
Cumin
Herbamare
Pumpkin seeds

I usually bake squash in advance and keep it in the fridge ready for use. When you feel like having a hearty soup - just sauté some onion, add spices, coconut cream and squash, cook until hot, then purée in blender.
Fast, easy, and nutritious!

It's excellent source of beta-carotene, so important for healthy white blood cells, good immunity, vibrant eyes, skin and hair. Just one serving of kabocha provides 70% of the day's daily requirement.

I recommend this as a dietary supplement for everyone suffering from anxiety and depression, especially during holiday season. The active ingredient in this supplement is magnesium, which is the key element in fighting depression.

Magnesium deficiency is well known to produce neuropathologies.
Dietary deficiencies of magnesium, coupled with excess calcium and stress may cause related symptoms including agitation, anxiety, irritability, confusion, asthenia, sleeplessness, headache, delirium, hallucinations and hyperexcitability.

Only 16% of the magnesium found in whole wheat remains in refined flour, and magnesium has been removed from most drinking water supplies, setting a stage for human magnesium deficiency. These magnesium ion neuronal deficits may also be induced by stress hormones, excessive dietary calcium as well as dietary deficiencies of magnesium.

Magnesium ions regulate calcium ion flow in neuronal calcium channels, helping to regulate neuronal nitric oxide production. In magnesium deficiency, neuronal requirements for magnesium may not be met, causing neuronal damage which could manifest as depression.

While antidepressant drugs are not always effective, and some have been accused of causing an increased number of suicides particularly in young people, some real case histories show rapid recovery (less than 7 days) from major depression using 125-300 mg of magnesium (as glycinate and taurinate) with each meal and at bedtime.

Magnesium was found usually effective for treatment of depression in general use. Related and accompanying mental illnesses in these case histories including traumatic brain injury, headache, suicidal ideation, anxiety, irritability, insomnia, postpartum depression, co***ne, alcohol and to***co abuse, hypersensitivity to calcium, short-term memory loss and IQ loss were also benefited.

Lavender Oil for Anxiety and Depression

Lavender oil aromatherapy has been shown to be effective in the management of anxiety and depression and small and medium-sized controlled and uncontrolled clinical trials. The best validated use of lavender as an anxiolytic agent is oral supplementation of 80 mg per day of a high-quality, well-defined lavender essential oil that has a demonstrated efficacy comparable or superior to benzodiazepines and kava, with a super safety profile.

Aromatherapy: Exploring Olfaction

An interesting article that shines light on the fascinating connection between smells and emotions.

Essential oils reach can reach the amygdala, which has direct connections to hippocampus, entorhinal cortex, dorsomedial thalamus and the brain stem. This means that inhaling pure essential oils has immediate straight-forward access to the part of our brain that controls our mood & motivation and can change our heart rate and blood pressure. Additionally, amygdala governs our fear and learning processes, which explains why the odour of Thyme, for example, has shown to increase focus and improve memory. Read about the olfactory process in the article below.
Also, check out more information about the amygdala:

Trust Your Gut: Probiotics and the Gut-Brain Axis — Meta Science News

For many years, the sole origin of mood disorders has been traced back to dysfunctional neurotransmitter systems in the brain. However, recent evidence has suggested an important role for the gut, specifically gut microbiota, in anxiety and depression. There is bidirectional communication along the…
