Eating the right foods is also an important component of keeping your brain healthy. Studies have shown that certain foods have shown to be beneficial for your brain. Here are some foods that are brain boosters:
Blueberries Do the Brain Good!Blueberries Do the Brain Good!Fish (cold-water fish)
Colorful and citrus fruits
Berries (blueberries, raspberries, boysenberries)
Cruciferous and leafy green vegetables
Whole grains
Pulses and beans (lentils, lima beans, green beans)
Calcium-rich foods (yogurt, cheese, milk, etc)
Iron-rich foods (red meats, liver)
Carbohydrate-rich foods (stick to starches and sugars - legumes, grains, fruits, veggies)
Supplemental herbs
Organic and plant oils

For information on how these foods affect your brain, visit our Brain Fitness Tips.

When I was younger, my mom made me delicious salmon with whole grains and calcium-rich foods. It sounds crazy, but it is super delicious. Here is the recipe so give it a try!

Filet of salmon
Plain yogurt
Whole grain bread crumbs

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix yogurt and mayo so it is 3:1 (mostly yogurt). Place the salmon on a greased baking pan and cover the top with a thin layer of the yogurt mixture. Sprinkle the bread crumbs over the yogurt mixture, covering it. Season with oregano and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes or until fully cooked.

Let me know what you think! You can always do simple things to give your brain a boost by chowing down on blueberries or indulging yourself with some chocolate.
