So, we're not exactly promising mental transcendence, but your lunch can definitely be working harder for you. Eating the right foods can improve your mood, help with memory and even restore lost brain function. We've rounded up 10 of the most nutrient-dense foods for your brain then turned them into three delicious and easy-to-make (and pack) lunches to add to your workweek rotation.
A little more on the brain foods:
Walnuts and flax seeds have a high concentration of alpha-linolenic acid, an Omega-3 fatty acid that can have a positive affect on cerebral structure, possibly helping to prevent certain neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression and dementia.
The medium-chain triglycherides (MCT) found in coconut oil may help restore lost brain function. (Pretty amazing.)
Vitamin K can keep you sharp, and spinach is brimming with it.
