Brain Awareness Week. Invest in your brain.

Would you put honey in a car engine and expect it to operate? Probably not. Your brain is no different, and like a car operates best with premium quality highly nutritious food – proteins, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals from vegetables and fruit, and some healthy slow release carbohydrates. Your brain uses 25% of your energy intake.

Day three. Start your day with a healthy breakfast as your brain has worked very hard overnight while you were sleeping and needs energy. Consider a small serve of protein (nuts, diary, eggs, fish) an energy source (cereal, sour dough), and fruit or vegetable.
