Boosting brain health and mental clarity is something that we all need in our high paced lives today. Theres no denying that adding more plant foods to your daily regime will optimize brain function. Practically everyone I have helped on their journey to a plant-based diet has reported a feeling of lightness and mental clarity within a matter of days, only getting better as time goes on. You may find your attention span longer, a new ability to focus on the task at hand, and being able to deal with stressful situations with far less emotional response.

A healthy brain is a key component to a long and enjoyable life, not to mention checking off everything on your to-do list. Look to fruits high in antioxidants like blueberries, red grapes to combat brain fog. If you add nothing else, add wild blueberries as there is a strong correlation to wild blueberries and elevated brain health. High levels of antioxidants help protect against damage to brain cells and boost brain power. Foods high in beta- carotene like carrots, oranges, sweet potatoes, mango, leafy greens, broccoli, and pumpkin help give a memory boost and reduce cognitive decline. Avocados are amazing for the brain; a great source of omega-6 fatty acids, they can help restore the central nervous system and aid with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

In this post I want to share a few recipes that contain secret food ingredients that aid in boosting memory, mental clarity, as well as prevention of cognitive decline. Add these to a day when you need an extra boost of focus, and know that you are doing your body good by adding these foods into your life on a regular basis!
