Brain food is anything that delivers mental clarity, won’t cause you to crash after eating and is a better overall choice. Notice I avoid categorizing brain food as healthy or “good for you”. Nothing preachy here. Guilt associated with eating is not my thing. All things in moderation. For powering up the old Thinker, picture lentils, beans, grilled fish and anything under the banner of Mediterranean cuisine. For breakfast, I’m loving chia seed pudding made with coconut milk and the anti-oxidant power of green tea. Add local stone fruits and you have an entire meal of brain-boosting tastiness.
Recipe inspiration comes from many sources. A dish enjoyed at at restaurant. A glistening bowl of spicy roasted vegetables glimpsed in a magazine. A revamp of a vintage recipe from my trove of family cookbooks.
