Cookies!!! YES! More specifically, chocolate chip cookies. Even more specifically, no-sugar, immune supportive, decadent balls of delicious healthy fatty goodness. Use this chocolate chip cookie dough for baked cookies (with a Mexican Wedding Cookie-type consistency), for home-made ice cream, or for just plain ol’ eatin’ of the raw dough deliciousness.
Salmon is simply brain food (and delicious and super easy to cook!). It’s ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) makes it anti-inflammatory. Reduced inflammation in the gut, reduces inflammation in the brain.
Water is the most essential “nutrient” that our brain needs to function properly. It is estimated that about 80% of the North American population suffers from energy loss due to minor dehydration. Even mild dehydration of just a body water loss of 1% (which can occur through routine daily activities) impairs cognitive performance, resulting in poor concentration, decreased reaction time, and short-term memory problems, as well as moodiness and anxiety. Depression and anxiety can both be induced through low levels of dehydration!
