Part 2. Recipes to increase concentration and improve brain and gut health

What does your gut, brain, and memorising Bach’s Ciaconna have in common? Allow me to introduce you to a musician's new BFF. The vagus nerve. Our brain and gut are connected via the vagus nerve. It is the inner walkie-talkie between our brain and gut. Hidden in the walls of our digestive system is our second brain, our glorious gut. When there is irritation in the gut, our second brain can send signals to our central nervous system, which can alter mood and affect cognitive thinking and memory. It wasn’t that you didn’t want to practise or were having a mental block with Bach, your digestive health has a part to play.

Are you making the connection yet? A happy healthy gut = alert and focused brain = ninja technique = badass Bach.

Join the conscious cheffing cellist, Tara-Lee as she deep dives into the microbiome exploring the gut/brain axis, how to influence and fuel your mood with fermented foods, and seasonal recipes to increase concentration that would make the Karate Kid envious.
