"The human brain requires more than forty-five nutrients to be at its best."
-Lisa Mosconi, PhD
Dear Brain, remember me?
It is impossible to narrate a book on brain nutrition without scrutinizing your diet!
I'm hydrating my brain, increasing my PUFAs, phospholipids, phenylalanine and supporting neurotransmitter activity! I wake up to a pint sized glass of water on my beside table and drink it as soon as I wake up. For breakfast, I eat fewer eggs each week, and more oatmeal. I love it sweetened with maple syrup, raisins, a little flax meal and topped with walnuts! I don't even snack at all on oatmeal days. For all my meals, I reduce my portion sizes and it isn't as hard as I thought it would be. Blueberries excepted. Luckily jumbo blueberries have been featured at Wegmans this week. I add 2 packages to my cart which already contains Ruby Red Texas Grapefruit, chia powder, unsweetened yogurt, dandelion greens, dark chocolate, wild caught salmon and a tiny glass jar of caviar.
Tonight I raise a glass of red wine to you Dr Mosconi in gratitude. Gracie mille!
