Foods to Boost Memory
Brought to you by 'A Healthy CIT', a multi campus iniatitive.
Ever wonder whether there are certain foods that could help you retain information? Could these foods help your grades? The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (www.eatright.org) recommends the following foods to boost your brain power!
1) GREEN VEGGIES
We are talking broccoli, kale, and cabbage. You can often pick these up as part of special offer deals at Aldi. Add raw broccoli, pomegranate, feta cheese, walnuts to a large bowl and you have the world’s easiest salad!
Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and cherries. You can buy these fresh in local supermarkets or you can buy them frozen which might be a cheaper, more convenient option. Try a portion of blueberries in your porridge to kick start your day. Berries contain chemicals called anthocyanins which help increase memory function.
3) THOSE OMEGA 3’s
Essential fatty acids can help boost brain function. Try cooking fish (salmon, tuna, sardines) instead of meat for a change.
Walnuts can be eaten on their own or they can be sprinkled on morning porridge, or added to salads for an extra bite.
