{Brain Boosting Foods}

Each month we do receive the Costco Connection magazine and it provides useful information on health and life style. The Costco Connection from June 2012, had a great article: Tuning up the brain | Healthy ways to protect your memory. 
Eat smart by adding olives, nuts, avocados and dark leafy greens to the diet. Spinach sautéed in olive oil may be the ultimate brain food. Serve it with fish and a glass of red wine... You can find the link to this Costco Connection edition below this post.
Under Eat smart, you find the above mentioned info...
Thought this is useful and interesting info to share.
Not your usual Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales but nevertheless...

Don't forget my Worldwide GIVEAWAY: top right on my blog | just click it and GOOD LUCK!

  1. Thank you for this interesting and healthy information, Mariette! I do love spinach and am always looking for new ways to add it to our diet. I do believe in eating healthy to stay healthy! xx

  2. Dearest Mariette, I hope you are feeling much better and are getting up and about. This is a great post!! One can never be reminded about healthy eating, too much. I love spinach and Mr. G. often does saute it in olive oil and garlic - as a side dish... or after sauteing uses it as filler for omelettes.
    Wishing you a wonderful week- as Thanksgiving entertaining wraps up until next year... and the Christmas preparation begins. Hugs to you both! xo C. (HHL)

  3. Dearest Mariette,
    I appreciate this post very much, especially since I've been more conscious and strict at following a healthy lifestyle and diet in the last two months. I've lost weight, I work out daily, and I've even participated in two 5K runs. I feel so great, more flexible, more energetic and especially, happier. Better health, better mood, right?

    Hope you and Pieter had a great Thanksgiving.


  4. Dearest Mariette,
    I'am happy with very useful information on healthy and life style.
    I need very much with me for my time.
    Thank you for help me Mariette san!
    Hugs and Pieter to both always!

  5. Liebe Mariette,


    Herzliche Grüße

I really enjoyed this post about brain boosting foods - these will definitely come in handy at work, I like the part in the article about trying to eat a rainbow every day! I will try to remember that. Have a great new week!
