1 Sharpen think­ing with eggs! Egg yolks are packed with an es­sen­tial B vi­ta­min called cho­line. Why that’s a boon for the brain: Ac­cord­ing to re­search out of Bos­ton Univer­sity, adults who have a cho­line-rich diet do bet­ter on mem­ory tests and are less likely to show signs of im­paired think­ing skills with age. 2 with av­o­cado! Im­prove mem­ory Trendy av­o­ca­dos are rich in ul­tra-healthy mo­noun­sat­u­rated fats that pro­mote healthy blood flow and nour­ish your brain. 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! Drink­ing a glass of red or white can help your brain clear away tox­ins—in­clud­ing those as­so­ci­ated with foggy think­ing and even Alzheimer’s dis­ease, ac­cord­ing to a study in Sci­en­tific Re­ports. Just stick to one glass: Ex­perts note that ex­cess al­co­hol can harm brain cells and con­trib­ute to mem­ory loss.
