People want to know: what foods should I be eating to improve my overall brain health. Well, the science for this is often unclear–different foods and supplements are constantly hyped as the next big thing. But here are a few brain foods that have definitely stood the test of time:
So that’s arugula. Collard greens. Swiss chard. Of course, kale is the trendy choice here. But spinach is great too. And you can easily slip it into a smoothie and never taste the difference. Seafood.
Now, everybody knows seafood is brain food. But people often stress about how to work it into the diet. Hard to find, expensive.
So consider: canned salmon. Cheap and easy, and you still get all those great omega-3s.
Nuts and Seeds
Things like cashews, almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds. These are great as snacks on the go, but can also be tossed into stir fry dishes and salads. Leafy greens, seafood, nuts and seeds. Add these to your diet regularly and you’ll feed your brain as well as your body.
