We all know and love these foods as delicious, snack-able treats. However, did you know that they are also among the top 50 best brain healthy foods?
The joint collaboration of Dr. Daniel & Tana Amen, Change Your Brain, Change Your Body is a cookbook targeted towards increasing your mental abilities through the use of a wide variety of protein rich foods. The book contains helpful hints and suggestions on optimizing brain and body health, and also leads you to the Amens’ website for further information.
While the book does lean towards a vegan lifestyle, the Amens have included healthy alternatives for the carnivores amongst us. Chicken and turkey, when prepared correctly, are both low fat and protein rich. And as I learned in Change Your Brain, Change Your Body, protein is a brain’s best friend!
I recommend Change Your Brain, Change Your Body to anyone who is looking for interesting new ways to keep your brain healthy and active. Be prepared to explore unique foods… But hey, the brain loves trying new things, right?
