Did You Know That Some Foods Can Help Boost Brain Power?
If you're like me, and not some super health nut, you probably have forgotten some of that grade school health class information. Science has proven that some foods are brain foods, and are of course good for your whole body.
Brain foods have healthful components like omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins, and antioxidants. They help to support brain health and can lead to better mental function and maybe a little less brain fog. You can of course use Uncle Google to learn more about these, or you can attend a free class virtually that will explore how to get them into your diet easily. It's an educational opportunity but also a class that you can cook along with.
The Whole Foods Co-op is hosting "Boost Brain Power Through Functional Foods", on Saturday, April 19th. It runs from 9:00-11:00AM and a professional chef will be leading the event. Creative recipes will be demonstrated while you will learn to cook with brain foods to make something healthy and tasty too.
You'll learn to make dishes like Sunshine Fruit Compote, Broccoli Pesto Pasta, and even Sneaky Chocolate Mousse. I'm guessing it's sneaky because of the brain foods hidden in it. All you have to do is register in advance, and they will email you the recipes with a list of ingredients so you are all ready to cook along. The morning of the class, participants will be emailed a Zoom meeting link to join in on. You can register for this free class HERE.
