Pauline Beaumont, In-House Psychological Wellbeing Expert. There are many things we can do to help ourselves psychologically (including of course, making sourdough bread), whether we have mental health problems or not. Taking a psycho-educational approach, Pauline is happy to answer questions about the techniques and strategies that can lead us to understand ourselves better and then to be able to make more adaptive choices in our lives. You might want to ask questions about ways of helping to counter low mood, anxiety in its many forms, low self-esteem, perfectionism or procrastination – not an exhaustive list but the sorts of struggles many of us, and those close to us, will face in our lifetimes.

|7||Baking as Lifestyle Medicine & The Bread Protocol||Background Knowledge|
How our Bread Protocol supports Baking as Lifestyle Medicine - this is also considered to be a Nutritional psychiatry approach
Groundbreaking evidence has demonstrated that diet has a significant impact on mental health. This area that we subscribe to as part of lifestyle medicine is known as Nutritional Psychiatry.
There is some good evidence to suggest that bread and other foods rich in complex carbohydrates may have a positive effect on mental health. For example, a study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that people who consumed more complex carbohydrates, such as those found in wholegrain bread, had a lower risk of depression and anxiety than those who consumed a diet low in complex carbs. And another study, published in the Journal of Public Health Nutrition found that people who ate a diet high in whole grains, including bread, had a lower risk of developing depression and anxiety compared to those who ate a diet low in whole grains.
We work holistically using the 6 pillars of lifestyle medicine to examine the relationship between bread and mental health. It’s about understanding the relationship between complex carbohydrates and mental health. We know that diet is just one of many factors that can impact mental health, and that a healthy diet is just one aspect of overall mental health and well-being, so we aim to look at every aspect of baking for wellness.
