Best Brain Foods

by Gregory L. Hall, MD
 
There is no question that some fairly common and inexpensive foods can also be good for your brain, and if you have brain complaints, these best brain foods become an essential addition to your diet. You are probably familiar with many of these foods, but just didn’t know that they could help with the smooth functioning of your brain.

Breakfast

Start your day with either a bowl or a side of oatmeal. Add a handful of blueberries to the cereal, or have them in yogurt. Wash that down with a glass of pomegranate juice, and you have primed your brain for a day of increased clarity!

Best Brain FoodsLunch

For lunch have a salmon steak with salad and added avacado.  The omega-3 is great for your brain as well as your heart! The salmon can be grilled (after brushing with olive oil, or lightly pan fried or baked). The salad can be any green vegetable, but try to have spinach 2 to 3 times a week. Lemon or lime-aid will make a great beverage.  Lunch should be your heaviest meal so that you have energy to burn throughout the rest of the day.

Dinner

Your dinner will be a lighter meal, but you don’t have to go to bed hungry.  Beans and lentils are the answer. They are inexpensive and many have antioxidants which are essential to metabolic health not just for your brain, but for all of the cells in your body.  You can add meat to your beans to make them heartier.  Add a light sandwich on a high fiber bun, and another side of fresh vegetables.  Get some exercise after dinner. . . go for a walk.

The antioxidants and the free-radical stabilizers are all good for your cells, and especially your brain! Wildly colorful fruits and vegetables provide these necessary chemical components.  Canned and processed foods just don’t have the special effects of freshly picked (or cooked) foods. Have a handful of nuts or seeds between meals as a snack, they’re easy and very good for you!
