Bloomington Brain Food Extravaganza

Next month I am returning to Bloomington, Indiana to give a TEDx talk on an exercise I’ve been doing called Prescription BrainFood. More on that later.

I know I’m a little late in posting this, but last August, I made the ultimate brain food trip to Bloomington, Indiana where I talked about The Happiness Diet and was hosted by Bloomingfoods , the first food cooperative that I joined way back when I was a medical student. Jean Kautt arranged an amazing day – an interview with Anni Corrigan of Earth Eats and then meeting Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor

The great Dr. Jill is neuroanatomist, author of My Stroke of Insight, and gave one of the most watched TED talks ever. Through her Brain Extravaganza project, 22 enormous (5 feet tall!) and beautifully-designed (as well as anatomically correct!) brains were on display throughout the city of Bloomington. The brains all decorated by local artists leading to a diverse look with themes ranging from music to religion to foo.

Jill and I chatted at the food-based brain outside of the Bloomington Market and Deli, designed by Bonnie Gordon-Lucas.

Watch the interview below.
