4 Spring Foods that are Good for your Body and Good for your Brain.

It is Spring time. What are you going to eat that is good for you? Here are some suggestions:

  • beets photoBeets – full of cancer-fighting antioxidants and potassium plus high in folate and iron. Beet fiber can improve bowel function and cholesterol. Try our beet hummus or roasted beets with mint.
  • Asparagus – Vitamin K (strong bones); Vitamin A (eyes, heart, lungs, kidneys and other organs); thiamin (brain and liver). Add Asparagus to your salads or roast with a drizzle of lemon olive oil to bring out its flavor. Park Street Pizza in Sugarcreek OH is serving it up on their specialty pizza with bacon, mozzarella and our lemon olive oil – it is delicious!
  • berries photoBerries – Vitamin C, fiber and phytonutrients. Low in calories, berries offer you a good source of phenolic antioxidants just like fresh olive oil. Phenols help with inflammation and protect the heart against disease. Try our Strawberry & Kale Salad.
  • Arugula – Loaded with Calcium, Vitamins A, C & K, plus a good dose of iron. Add it to your mix salad greens and serve with our Citrus Vinaigrette.

Feed your brain…It is suggested that if you consume two or more servings a day of vegetables you will slow your cognitive decline. A rainbow of brightly colored produce is a good start. Dress you greens in olive oil which has monounsaturated “good” fats. Then, serve up some omega-3s by eating non-fried cold water wild caught fish like salmon, trout or haddock.

Remember, any foods that are good for heart health equals brain health!
