The Gut-Immune Connection: How Understanding the Connection Between Food and Immunity Can Help Us Regain Our Health, By Dr. Emeran Mayer
Orsha and our Neuro-Chefs developed the recipes in Dr. Mayer’s book, The Gut-Immune Connection. Each recipe was built around Dr. Mayer's unique specifications, and accuracy was confirmed by nutritional analyses. We also wrote introductions for each recipe, summarizing the science.
Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You're Taking, the Sleep You're Missing, the Sex You're Not Having, and What's Really Making You Crazy, by Dr. Julie Holland
Orsha provided science communication consulting services for the book, Moody Bitches. Dr. Holland called upon Orsha to source, synthesize and summarize the current scientific literature on nutrition-related topics that were discussed in the book.

The University of Calgary Graduate Students Cookbook
Orsha and her Neuro-Chefs developed a cookbook and guide to show University of Calgary students how to eat for brain health. The cookbook supports students who are 1) on restrictive budgets, 2) have no time to cook, and 3) who deal with junk food cravings. Best of all, no cooking skills were required for these comfort food recipes!
Inglewood Child Development Centre
Inglewood Child Development Centre wanted to put a brain food focus on the meals and snacks they serve their preschoolers. So our team created custom kid-friendly menus for them, with a special focus on nutrients that nutritional neuroscience research shows are key for early brain, gut and immune system development.
The Gut-Immune Connection: How Understanding The Connection Between Food and Immunity Can Help Us Regain Our Health, By Dr. Emeran Mayer
We developed brain, gut and immune focused recipes and science communication for the ground-breaking book, The Gut-Immune Connection. Each delicious recipe is based on guidelines from Dr. Mayer for quantities of fibre, omega-3 fatty acids and polyphenols.
Orsha is a major foodie and loves creating unique brain food dining experiences for the public.
