Five foods to eat every week

Nuts

Nuts are an ex­cel­lent source of many brain-healthy nu­tri­ents, in­clud­ing vi­ta­min E, B vi­ta­mins and healthy fats – each nut with its own level of good­ness. If you had to pick a win­ner for brain-en­hanc­ing nuts, wal­nuts would take first prize.

They’re one of the nuts high­est in gamma to­co­pherol (an­ti­in­flam­ma­tory and an­tiox­i­dant prop­er­ties and may be im­por­tant for de­men­tia pre­ven­tion) and have the high­est com­po­si­tion of polyun­sat­u­rated fatty acids.

For max­i­mum brain-en­hanc­ing ad­van­tages, eat 1oz (about a hand­ful) of a va­ri­ety of nuts two to five times a week. But be care­ful not to overdo it. Nuts are also high in calo­ries.
