In order to eat foods that are healthy and great for our brain they must be low in calories, and help us reach the goals of consuming powerful antioxidants, lean protein, high in fiber, and include lots of healthy fats. The fruits and vegetables encompass the colors of the rainbow. Like red strawberries, raspberries, cherries, red peppers and tomatoes. Yellow squash, yellow peppers, small portions of bananas and peaches. Blue blueberries, purple plums, orange tangerines, and yams. Of course green peas, spinach, avocados, and broccoli. The following also need to be included:

Salmon is rich in omega-3-fatty acids, as are tuna, mackerel, and herring.

Skinless chicken, and turkey.

Lean beef and pork.

Enriched DHA eggs.

Cottage cheese, yogurt and some milk.

Beans, like garbanzo beans, and lentils.

Nuts and seeds

Berries like blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries.

Oatmeal, as in the long cooking kind. The instant variety has the fiber broken down to speed cooking time, and this makes it a refined carbohydrate. The same is true of bread. If you can get the real thing from a bakery that uses whole grains, then some bread is ok.

Water, coffee, or tea – black or green.

 

Happy Lifting!
