“Improve Your Food, Improve Your Mood” is one of the many self-help tools that Hope Foods, maker of plant-based dips and spreads features on their newly-launched mental well-being resource website. While the Colorado-based brand has participated extensively over years in mental health awareness campaigns through nonprofit training partnerships, donation matching, and local education events, Hope Foods’ newly designed web experience aims to bring its wide range of mental well-being tools and expertise to a broader, national audience.
“Self-care is vital to mental health and well-being. Within the company, several employees are certified Mental Health First Responders. We even have internal mental health crisis support systems and developed preventive programming for our employees,” says Nicole Pavlica, Director of Marketing and Innovation at Hope Foods. “These programs have such a positive impact on the emotional well-being of our team members that we created this website to share this important information beyond our office and out to the larger community.”
The new website includes a reservoir of tools that focus on specific areas of improvement such as breath & anxiety, mindfulness, gratitude, and food. Suggestions include guidance on breathwork, helpful apps and videos, book recommendations, and information showing how healthier food choices can have helpful physiological impacts on mood. Once such suggestion, a 2017 article titled “The Simplified Guide to the Gut-Brain Axis – How the Gut and The Brain Talk to Each Other”, shows how microbes from food are linked to the emotional regulation of the brain. In fact, 90% of serotonin (the body’s chemical to manage moods) is regulated by the gut. This is why Hope Foods focuses on offering products that include gut-supporting ingredients from natural sources, such as almonds, garlic, onions, chickpeas and avocados.
Hope Foods’ hummus and Cashew & Almond dips are made fresh in small-batches and are healthier alternatives to other food dips because they’re low in sugar, Vegan and Non-GMO Project verified. Popular flavors include Sea Salt & Olive Oil Hummus, Spinach & Artichoke Cashew & Almond Dip, and their recently-launched Vanilla Bean Dessert Dip flavor made from natural vanilla beans, cashews, and almonds.
