This pale- green fruit is also a good source of a lutein, a nutrient that helps improve mood and memory, says dietitian Rachel Bassler, R.D. Mash ripe avocado on bread for a tasty sandwich spread. 3 with olive oil! Rev problem-solving Adults who consume olive oil are 60% less likely to have cognition problems. And a Spanish study found women who get a teaspoon daily have an easier time doing brainteasers after 30 days! Nutritionist Jonny Bowden, PH.D., says: “Olive oil’s healthy fat reduces inflammation, helping the brain stay healthier longer.” 4 with wine! End brain fog Cheers!
