Ever since giving birth to baby Harriet 9 months ago I have been on a slow and steady journey to get back to my pre-baby weight through healthy eating and gentle exercise. Aside from the encouraging results on the scales I have seen other welcome changes too, eg. healthier skin, improved moods and a better memory, showing that food is so much more than just fuel to keep your body going. Don’t just take my word for it, learn from an expert in this nutritious guide to ‘Brain Health’ by Delia McCabe:
Author Delia McCabe has a Masters in Psychology under her belt and is currently completing her doctorate on the effects of certain nutrients on female stress. She is on a mission to educate people about the dramatic influence the right diet can have on our memory, moods, ability to focus and stress levels. In her first book Delia shares a unique 7-step plan to brain health that is practical and easy to implement, whether just for you or for the whole family.
If you would like to learn how the right foods can help you use your brain to its full potential you will love Feed Your Brain (RRP $34.99). This educational book explains how your body and brain work and how certain foods directly influence your brain function. From stress, sex, exercise and sleep to food intolerances and additives, vitamins and minerals, this book explains how they are all linked and where to start if you are hungry for change.
I found Feed Your Brain very detailed and informative, it is so much more than just a list of healthy foods. I was really pleased to see that proper ‘brainfood’ doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive and hard to find, you can find lots of it at your local supermarket without having to break the bank. To help you get started Feed Your Brain includes a range of tasty and ‘brain approved’ meal, snack, dessert recipes that are quick and easy to make, two ingredient fudge anyone?
Feed Your Brain was a real eyeopener for me, knowing what I do now I will definitely shop more consciously and choose specific foods that will make a difference. I also appreciate that Delia’s message is backed up by reliable studies and proven research, so you can create your healthy eating habits with confidence.
For a sneaky little taste of this great read check out Delia’s scrumptious Raw Chocolate and Date Mousse (free recipe), your first bite to a healthy brain!
