Food for thought

We have all heard 'you are what you eat'. A certain truth shows that particular foods are proven to enhance brain health and activity. Eating healthily at this time of inherent stress should boost energy levels. Such foods include:



wholegrain carbohydrates eg brown rice



leafy, green vegetables

chocolate. Dark chocolate contains an antioxidant that increases blood flow to the brain. So next time you fancy a sweet treat, indulge guilt-free.

Try to incorporate some of these foods in your diet over the coming weeks. Any healthy suggestion possible is worth giving a go.
