At Holiday time we are sharing food with the people we care about the most – family and friends, as well as work colleagues and clients.   So why not make our holiday foods healthy as well as delicious.

For brain healthier meals,

  • Add nutritious ingredients such as foods full of anti-oxidants, that are anti-inflammatory, that help us lower rather than raise, our blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
  • The easiest way to do this is add more vegetables, spices, herbs and other plant foods and use fewer animal foods as well as less sugar.
  • Limit the amount of sugar, salt and saturated/trans fats you are serving yourself and your family and friends.
  • Let your family and friends know you love them enough to go the extra mile, maybe trying out something new and equally delicious to what they are used to.
  • Take favorite family recipes and make them a little or lot more brain and body healthy
