Please don’t forget to also benefit your mind when thinking about your diet!
Add these to your food shopping list:
Avocados - help prevent blood clots in the brain as well as improve cognitive function, memory and concentration. Other benefits include keeping blood sugar levels steady and your skin glowing.
Beets - reduce inflammation, are high in cancer-protecting antioxidants and help rid your blood of toxins. They help your mental performance by boosting blood flow to the brain.
