Last year, my wife and I read The Happiness Diet by Tyler Graham and Drew Ramsey. The book was pretty good, and since reading it we have been much more conscious about eating the right foods to feed our brains. All of the changes we’ve made as a result have been simple, and most of them have been delicious! We eat a lot of smoothies, and a few simple additions to our regular recipes have been keeping our brains pretty happy.
Honestly, if you’re already on-board with eating an organic whole foods diet – there probably isn’t anything here that’s going to shock you. The gist of the book is to avoid processed foods, mind your minerals, avoid refined sugars, eat really good meat, and so on. But there is a wealth of information about various vitamins and minerals, and exactly why they’re needed by your body and brain.
I came across this infographic that has similar information, neatly condensed for a quick read, and I thought I’d pass it along. Take a look, and see if there’s an easy change you can make in your own diet that might help you get your brain in better shape.
This just might help you get through next Monday with a smile on your face…
