It is so important that we exercise our brain and try new things to challenge ourselves every day, but it is also important to fuel our brain with the proper foods that can help our brain function at its best every day.  Have you ever noticed that when you have not eaten for an extended period of time you may get irritable, sluggish or even sleepy? This is because our brain requires energy that we need from foods to help our brain work properly.  It is so important that we eat brain-boosting foods every day. There are certain vitamins and minerals that our brain needs every single day such as omega-3’s, iron, and magnesium, Vitamins C, E and K.  This is why it is so important that we eat breakfast every single day! It’s the best way to wake up our minds and fuel our body for the day.  Eating breakfast helps you to focus better, remember information, and maintain a healthy weight.  Choose brain foods like walnuts, broccoli, blueberries, kale, avocados, oatmeal, whole grains, oily fish like salmon, tomatoes, pumpkin seeds to boost your brainpower! Of course, being physically active and doing crossword puzzles can help boost our brainpower too!
