Neurotechnology with Culinary Memoirs from the Daily Nutrition & Health Reporter
How do you adapt the intergenerational or ethnic family recipes to preserve the tradition but not its debilitating health effects? That's what culinary memoirs writing covers in addition to getting people to walk down an Epicurian memory lane.
Food is medicine and can be part of neurotechnology. So is relaxing or motivational music that enhances concentration. Here's how they work in tandem for enhancing both memory and digestion along with conversation and body language. Wise food traditions have a long history.
Neurotechnology can help to balance friends and family by motivating the listener's yearning to learn, think, relax, de-stress, focus, and inspire as food, conversation, and music all become interactive healing tools at the table. When nutritionists offer workshops in writing and/or recording culinary memoirs, they usually focus on adapting traditional family recipes by substituting healthier ingredients. One example would be switching to extra virgin olive oil, grapeseed oil, or rice bran oil, instead of baking or frying food using those solid, white hydrogenated trans-fat driven shortenings that their families used in the 1950s.
It can be done with groups of any ages and any physical conditions that can meet together online or in a classroom. Nutritional family historians discuss with students how to write culinary memoirs, traditional family recipe cookbooks, along with adapting old recipes, modifying ethnic menus with healthier substitutions. The idea is to combine neurotechnology with culinary memoirs to achieve a healthy balance.
