food for brain

Your body does need more than just nutrition to survive and
stay well. Don't forget to feed your spirit. Water and sleep is a
must. Exercise, mobility, nurtured, and a feeling that one is
a part of unified humanity, all contribute to living in wellness
both body and mind.

Like every other system in the body, the brain needs good food.
It uses 20 to 25 percent of the total energy a person consumes, and
the better you feed the brain, the better is works. According to the
New Jersey Medical College, these are the top 10 best foods for our
brain.

The first five are: low-fat milk or yogurt, eggs, lean meats such as
flank steak, chicken and other poultry, spinach and other leafy greens.

The last five are: whole-wheat bread, oranges, black beans and other
legumes, enriched brown rice, and salmon.

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.
