Want to boost your memory? Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, nuts and olive oil. A study published in JAMA Internal Medicine looked at the brain health of nearly 500 cognitively healthy individuals. Some of the participants were randomly assigned to a Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra virgin olive oil (about 4 tablespoons), a Mediterranean diet supplemented with a daily serving of mixed nuts or a control diet in which they were advised to reduce dietary fat. The findings revealed that in an older population, a Mediterranean diet supplemented with olive oil or nuts is associated with improved cognitive function.
Since the Mediterranean diet includes fish, which has healthy Omega-3s, we’re providing this Fish Taco Recipe for summer. It’s a great idea for Father’s Day too!
