My New Muse: Don’t Take Your Spirit Away

I have been a fan of Deitrick Haddon for quite a long time, even though I have only just discovered this song. It’s not very new, but it has currently been on repeat for quite a while on my phone.

I am so excited to share it with you because I think that you would like it too.

Here is the song for you to listen too. I hope you enjoy it!

Whole Grains and The Brain

Barley is a major animal feed crop.

Add Avocados and Whole Grains

Eating whole grains and fruits such as avocado can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and lower bad cholesterol. This helps to reduce the risk of plaque buildup which is helpful because every organ in the body depends on blood low, especially the heart and brain. Eating these foods can offer a tasty but simple way to fire up brain cells which is what everybody wants :).

Avocados have good monounsaturated fats in it that contributes to healthy blood flow.

As well as helping your brain, eating whole grains like popcorn and whole wheat contributes to your vitamin E and dietary fibre intake. And if that wasn’t enough, popcorn is also said to be a lot healthier than a packet of crisps- so feel free to dig in with no shame!

Chocolate nuts, nuts in general and seeds are very good sources of vitamin E. This gives you less cognitive decline as you age.

Dark chocolate also has very good powerful antioxidant properties such as caffeine which can help enhance focus and concentration. Though this may be true to some extent I wouldn’t suggest that your intake of caffeine and chocolate is high as it still has it’s negative effects. (See my previous post here to find out why.)

 

You should aim to have an ounce of nuts a day, dark chocolate included for those who enjoy it, to provide all the benefits you need without excess sugar, fat or calories.
