Eat Smart to Be Smart
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and this tasty
fruit is also a symbol of education. In years past, a
shiny red apple was a classic gift to give to a teacher.
It’s fitting, because a diet rich in apples and
other fruits promotes healthy brain function, and can
even help make you smarter. The natural sugars found
in apples can stimulate the brain to recall information
faster. A diet rich in fruits and produce promotes optimal
performance of the body and the brain.
- Think color. Consuming a wide variety of
brightly colored fruits and vegetables ensures you
get the vitamins,
minerals, and phytochemicals that maintain brain
health and enhance mental performance.
- Steam those veggies.
Overcooking vegetables in too much water means you
wash away the nutrients that you
want to consume. Cook smarter to be smarter.
- Strawberries are a smart choice.
Filled with antioxidants that slow brain again, strawberries
are easy to
add to your diet. Slice them over your cereal every day.
A diet rich in Fresh1 produce will keep your brain and
your whole body healthy. Try to eat at least five servings
of fruit or vegetables every day.
