Tomatoes are good for your brain, containing carotenoids, which is good for enhancing learning and memory.

Walnuts are the best nuts when it comes to brain power. They contain an Omega-3 Fatty Acid, DHA, which is great for brain performance.

2 cups Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons walnuts, chopped

Add the walnuts to the top of the yogurt.

Whole Grain Waffles with Blueberries and Flaxseed

Whole grain waffles contain Vitamin B6, which help to improve memory and prevent mental fatigue. Blueberries contain tannins, which improve brain health and flaxseed contains Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

½ cup blueberries
½ cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon flaxseed

  • I have to admit that I am not a breakfast person. But, I am starting to realize that I am losing out each day that I don’t eat something. I often tend to forget more things in meetings in the morning, and my energy level is simply not where it is during the afternoon after lunch. These are some great recipes to get me started. Thanks for sharing.
