Eat foods that age proof your brain

At every meal, eat soluble fiber such as that found in lentils, beans, steel-cut oatmeal, barley and apples.

Every day:

  1. Avoid late dinners – try not to eat for 12 hours – the 8 that you sleep plus 4 before bed to boost brain health.
  2. Mix your own salad dressings made from virgin olive oil, vinegar and herbs
  3. Drink smart – small amounts of caffeine (a la coffee) to focus the brain as well as green tea or hot cocoa
  4. Sprinkle seeds on cereal and salads – pumpkin, sesame, or flax
  5. Have eggs for breakfast or dinner
  6. Eat Mediterranean style  – emphasis on fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes, whole grains, poultry, seafood, and olive oil
  7. Fix any vitamin B deficiencies
  8. Add cinnamon to your diet
  9. Snack on berries – strawberries, blue berries

Twice a week eat fish.

A new year, a new chance to improve choices for your body.

Love and light,

Sheila
