Are You Short-Changing Your Brain?

Brain Food That Can Grow Your Brain

Your brain is a magical conductor of billions of tasks. We can barely comprehend how incredible the brain is. Yet many people short-change their brain’s incredible potential by eating too much junk food.

I have found that simple dietary changes can have a profound effect on brain health and function. Neuroscientists have a lot to say about food and the brain. Here is a list of super brain foods. Try to get five of these every day:

  • walnuts
  • almonds
  • blueberries
  • celery
  • cherries
  • cocoa
  • onions
  • garlic
  • tomatoes
  • wild salmon
  • flax – seeds or oil
  • ginger
  • tea – green, black, or oolong
  • kidney beans – or other beans
  • leafy greens
  • olives and olive oil
  • grapes – red or purple
  • sage
  • tumeric
  • prunes

You wouldn’t put the wrong fuel in your car. But if you did…. you can get a new car. You only get one brain. That’s it! Take care of it.

Editor’s Note

It’s the end of the year, and even as our chief editor Roshan Thiran urges us to take time to reflect and learn from all that has happened this year, some of us may be throwing caution to the wind and enjoying elaborate feasts with family and friends. Let’s keep our “magical conductor” in mind (the irony!) and what makes it tick. As Terry says, “Enjoy your brain!” and let's keep growing it through good brain food.
