Going bananas? Good.
Fruit ranks high among the best foods you can eat for your brain. Blueberries (which can be bought frozen in bags) get a lot of attention because they contain powerful antioxidants and other nutrients. The natural sugars in fruit offer clean energy, so you don’t experience the crash that follows the consumption of refined sugar.
Go for vegetarian meals
Once a day, replacing animal products with pulses: pulses, lentils, chickpeas … They are rich in fiber, minerals, and vitamins that make them the foods of choice for a good transit and long satiety.
Instill a healthy snack in the afternoon.
Studies prove it, people, who “taste” reduce by more than 25% their caloric intake of dinner because they do not undergo significant variations in blood sugar. For example, opt for a drink with a handful of almonds + a fresh fruit or a buckwheat pancake with a little honey or agave syrup.
Make it full of fresh fruits and vegetables!
Combine raw and cooked recipes to get the most of all of their antioxidants that protect against free radicals that cause premature aging of our cells.
Make way for naturally detoxifying foods:
Buckwheat, Artichoke, Cruciferae, Apple, Grapefruit, Prunes, Tofu, Banana, Avocado … The ideal is to have at least 2 each day to enhance their effects.
Begin the day with lemon juice pressed on an empty stomach
in a little water at room temperature. Although its taste is acidic, lemon remains an alkaline food that will brighten your complexion and detoxify your body from the sunrise.
Hydrate your Brain
We should be drinking at least 1.5L of water daily, but many times we forget to drink water especially when we are busy. Dehydration can sneak up on us and we might feel light-headed or even experience headaches due to dehydration. Carrying a reusable water bottle with you can help as a reminder to drink water, as you will most likely feel the need to fill the water bottle throughout the day. While plain water is typically the best way to hydrate, consider the following options to boost your fluid intake:
- Infused Water: add fresh cut fruit, vegetables, or herbs. For example cucumber, oranges, lemon, mint leaves.
- Tea: try pure, unsweetened brewed iced tea flavoured with citrus fruit (lemon, oranges, grapefruit)
- Fruits and Veggies: some fruits and veggies are packed with water and they can help you increase our fluid intake. These include melons, cucumbers, citrus fruits, celery.
