Keep Your Life In Mind - Food For Life

Food For Life

A healthy, balanced diet can help in maintaining brain health and functionality and
there are specific foods that can reduce the risk of dementia.
Your brain needs a range of nutrients to function properly. 
There is strong evidence that suggests eating a healthy Mediterranean-style diet 
which is high in omega 3, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats - found in fish
and olive oil as well as foods that are high in antioxidants such as tomatoes, pinto
and kidney beans, pecan nuts, cranberries, blueberries and oranges promotes the
growth of new brain cells. Limiting the intake of saturated fats such as those found
in deep fried foods and takeaway food and trans fats, which are often found in pies,
pastries, cakes, and biscuits can lower your risk of dementia.

Enjoy eating and nourishing yourself with food that is good for your brain health.
You are vital. Keep your life in mind.
