BRAIN FOODS

I am sure many of you have heard or seen the term “Superfoods” in various articles or on social media sources. Another term to consider are “Brain Foods.” What can we consume in order to keep our brains functioning properly, and even which foods have the potential to enhance our brain power? After all, our brain is quite vital to our daily existence and overall quality of life. The brain is basically our body’s control system, as it helps our heart and lungs work best, while also encouraging us to move, to feel, to just think. Therefore, it stands to reason that we should focus on keeping our brains in optimal condition. The various foods that each of us consumes will definitely be a factor in maintaining brain health, while also positively affecting our concentration and memory, both short-term and long-term. Additionally, the antioxidants included in some foods can increase our alertness and even positively enhance our mood.

In doing a little simple research (via Google), I compiled a fairly long list of so-called brain foods, which I also consider to be beneficial to our overall physical health.

Oily-Fatty Fish (wild salmon)
Nuts
Blueberries
Strawberries
Blackberries
Avocados
Red Grapes
Greek Yoghurt
Beans, Lentils
Flax Seeds
Tempeh
Smart Oils: Olive, Walnut, Avocado, Flax, Coconut
Eggs
Coffee
Turmeric
Broccoli
Pumpkin Seeds
Sunflower Seeds
Chia Seeds
Dark Chocolate
Oranges
Pomegranates
Green Tea
Tomatoes
Carrots
Sage & Rosemary
Beets
Bone Broth
Sweet Potatoes
Celery
Spinach
Asparagus
Brussel Sprouts
Peppers
Kimchi
Kale
Chard
Beef
Dried Fruits

This is obviously a very inclusive list, showing that many foods can help keep our brains healthy.
Looking at this list, I calculated that I consume about 25-30 of these on a daily or weekly basis. Take some time to review, and count how many you currently include in your nutritional intake. How often do you consume these “smart foods?”

One Life – One Brain – One Body …. ONE CHANCE!
