Your prescription will be ready in about 7 minutes...

It was the kind of day that only eating could fix
A greasy day...cheesy day....a spicy day. 
A day I had to visit the Food Pharmacy

"Carb craving is part of daily life," says Judith Wurtman, PhD, a former scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and co-author of The Serotonin Power Diet. She and her husband, MIT professor Richard J. Wurtman, have long researched carbohydrates and their link to mood and depression.

The Wurtmans published a landmark article about carbs and depression in Scientific American in 1989. They are convinced that the carbohydrate craving is related to decreases in the feel-good hormone serotonin, which is marked by a decline in mood and concentration. 

And the prescription refill can be ready in about 7 minutes.
