Sometimes our brains can be lagging at the office. We may get an assignment from our boss to brainstorm ideas for an upcoming project, but we can’t think of one good idea. It is in these times when good nutrition is in order. The right foods can boost our brain power and allow us to be more focused and get the creative juices flowing. Check out the following foods that can help with this.
1. Whole Wheat Crackers
The carbs in whole wheat crackers break down into glucose once they are inside your body. Glucose is needed for your brain to function properly. Adding cheese can be even better. This is because since cheese is a protein, it takes longer to digest which means you’ll feel the effects of it even longer.
2. Mixed Berry Parfait
I’m a fan of making my own parfaits because then I know exactly what is going into them and I can bypass the unnecessary boatloads of added sugar. A super easy way to make your own parfait is to get some low-fat Greek yogurt and top it with some blueberries and strawberries. There have been studies that suggest consuming blueberries can delay or improve your short-term memory loss. Strawberries are a great source of Vitamin C, which may be needed for proper brain function. When pairing these fruits with yogurt, your digestion will slow because of the calcium in yogurt and you’ll be ready for your afternoon meeting.
3. Tuna Cucumber Sushi Roll With Brown Rice
One roll can be a great snack, since the roll contains about 185 calories. Tuna is a great source of omega-3s, which are great for your overall health and works to boost your brain power. The brown rice is a great source of carbs, which releases that glucose into the body, needed for proper brain functioning, You can pick up a roll at your local grocery store to make for a delicious snack come afternoon.
