Food and recovery

“I’ve also discovered that I quite enjoy cooking so it’s not like I’m having fish and chips every night, I’m eating food prepared with basic ingredients and I’m very physically fit compared to what I used to be.”

“I try to have a good balance in all I do these days. That includes a healthy food regime. I really don't think I would be this health conscious if I hadn't encountered mental illness.”

Food and recovery

“I began treating my mind and body with respect and sticking to a healthy routine. I cut out most of the junk food I had been eating for convenience and comfort and as a result I lost a bit of weight. This helped my self-esteem, made me feel more energised, and helped to lift my mood.  The extra energy made it easier to exercise and I started swimming and going to exercise classes. I also began to enjoy walking my dogs... I thoroughly enjoyed the fresh air and lovely views. As a result, I managed to get into a good sleep pattern which is very important for me”

“Could they have hot food and maybe a selection of meat stews and curry and rice..... Nice cakes and biscuits for our coffee?”
