Foods your mind needs to prevent memory loss

There are some food groups that can boost your mind, yes I mean your brain power and keep it safe from related problems such as loss of brain function that occurs with aging known as Alzheimer's. A healthy brain diet.

These diets are called the MIND diet. The mind diet is a combination of both Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension and the Mediterranean diet which are a hybrid of the Dash diet. And the meaning of the Mind diet is; Mediterranean-Dash Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay.

HOW MIND DIET WORKS

This is solely on the consumption of Plant-based foods and reducing the consumption of animal-based foods high in saturated fats and food. More berries and rich leafy vegetables are advised with portion control regardless. The mind diet is not focused on weight loss.

Using and choosing olive oil as a source of fat to cook your daily meals. There are 10 food groups to eat daily; whole grain, fruits, vegetables, beans, poultry, fish, and snacks can include nuts and berries. Cutting out dairy and meat from your meals are not totally necessary, you can have them sparingly let’s say twice a week or you can swap them with protein-packed beans and legumes which are more important for the brain-mind.
