What we eat directly impacts our mood, our minds and our bodies.
We feel it in the crankiness that creeps up on us when we’ve eaten too many sugary sweets and in the energy we feel when we’ve had a balanced breakfast. For seniors especially, diet can directly affect how we age, both physically and cognitively, which is why we’ve created Brain Healthy Cooking, a nutrition program that focuses on foods and lifestyle choices that have been scientifically proven to positively impact our overall health, especially brain function.
Brain Healthy Cooking is based on the well-researched Mediterranean Diet and adheres to its core tenets which include eating lots of vegetables, whole grains, fish and seafood, limiting consumption of red meats and sweets, dining with others, and being active. In addition, the Brain Healthy Cooking program features specific ingredients that have been proven to enhance cognition and reduce inflammation, such as leafy greens, dark berries, spices, herbs and foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids like walnuts, salmon and olive oil. The best part about Brain Healthy Cooking is that its focus on fresh whole foods means it tastes amazing!
The bottom line is that eating well can make you feel good, at any age, and can create noticeable and positive changes in a relatively short period of time. But it can be difficult to create healthful recipes everyday when you are just cooking for yourself. Our Brain Healthy Cooking For One Recipe Guide gives you the tools you need to make Brain Healthy Cooking at home easy, even if you are cooking only for one or two people.
