MIND Diet

Last week’s podcast was all about the MIND diet. Have you heard of it? A way to eat to promote brain health and prevent Alzheimer’s disease. This is a blend of the DASH diet and Mediterranean diet that has been shown to reduce Alzheimer disease by 35-53%!

The study classifies 10 food groups to include and 5 food groups to avoid. Obviously it’s not all or nothing, just a guideline, so approach this with flexibility (says the girl over here eating cheese…).

10 brain healthy food groups: green leafy vegetables, other vegetables, nuts, berries, beans, whole grains, seafood, poultry, olive oil and wine

5 unhealthy food groups: red meats, butter and stick margarine, cheese, pastries and sweets, and fried/fast food

My top 10 picks for brain health and a recipe for each!
1. Kale – Kale salad
2. Almonds – cinnamon toasted almonds
3. Walnuts – fruit and nut oatmeal
4. Salmon – simple baked salmon
5. Avocado – avocado pudding
6. Yogurt/probiotics – yogurt parfait
7. Eggs – veggie egg bake
8. Ancient grains – ancient grain salad
9. Berries – berry crisp with super seed crumble
10. Coffee – how to make french press coffee
