5 toxic brain foods to avoid, according to a Harvard nutritionist

Revealed: The Secrets our Clients Used to Earn $3 Billion

I never ever go grocery shopping when I’m starving. People who do are more lured to purchase unhealthy convenience treats and packaged items, instead of entire, healthy and rewarding alternatives.

I’m really deliberate about what I put in my body. So as a dietary psychiatrist and author of “This Is Your Brain on Food,” individuals typically ask me what they need to constantly equip their cooking area with to keep their brains sharp and focused– at any age.

To make my grocery list simple to keep in mind, I developed the acronym BRAIN FOODS:

  • B: Berries and beans
  • R: Rainbow colors of vegetables and fruits
  • A: Antioxidants
  • I: Include lean proteins and plant-based proteins
  • N: Nuts
  • F: Fiber- abundant foods and fermented foods
  • O: Oils
  • O: Omega- abundant foods
  • D: Dairy
  • S: Spices

1. Berries and beans

Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries are all exceptional berry options.

Make sure to consume ripe berries quickly, because they do not last long (even in the refrigerator). At times of the year when fresh, ripe berries aren’t offered, frozen berries are fine as long as they don’t have added sugar or other additives.

Beans, legumes and lentils are also healthy and inexpensive sources of nutrients and vitamins. They’re also easy to prepare and can be a side dish or an appetizer.
