Discover how to eat to increase your energy levels, improve your mood, help you focus and sharpen your memory. Includes 60 recipes that are all aimed at improving the health of your brain. We all know that what we eat affects our general health, from weight loss or gain to improving flexibility of joints. But did you know that our diet has a direct impact on our brain, too? The gut and the brain are closely connected, which means that our food choices can affect our mental capacity and even our emotions. In Nourish Your Brain, nutritionist Rika Keck reveals how this gut-brain link works and what foods to eat – and avoid – to maintain and improve the health of our brain for overall wellbeing. She then presents a collection of recipes to get you started on the way to feeding your brain with what it needs to function at its best. These recipes are for breakfast, lunch and dinner, sides and snacks, smoothies and elixirs, and desserts and treats. Also included is a food diary so you can monitor your diet and discover how different foods can support your energy, mood and focus.
