In the Moment - - Living -

Pro­tein: in­clude a source of high­qual­ity pro­tein with each meal. Or­ganic eggs are a fan­tas­tic source of pro­tein and Omega 3 healthy fats.

Nuts and seeds: wal­nuts, in par­tic­u­lar, are a re­ally great source of brain-friendly good fats. A rain­bow of fruit and veg­eta­bles. Green tea gives a gen­tle men­tal boost with­out the jit­tery down­sides of cof­fee.

Lots of wa­ter: re­search has shown that even the mildest de­hy­dra­tion of only 1-2 per­cent of body wa­ter can af­fect your abil­ity to con­cen­trate.

WHAT NOT TO IN­CLUDE IN YOUR DIET

Low-fat yo­ghurts: they’re of­ten full of sugar to make them taste bet­ter.

Diet drinks: while they’re lower in sugar, they in­clude other in­gre­di­ents that have been linked with a long-term risk of de­men­tia. Posh cof­fees: usu­ally served with avoured syrups.

'Artisan' pop­corns: they of­ten have sug­ary in­gre­di­ents added for avour.
