5 Foods that Keep your Mind Nimble

Something to think about next time you reach for a good, healthy food.
These wonderful facts came from the
one and only Dr. Oz.
Blueberries: Compounds in the bright berries may help shield against harmful processes tied to Alzheimer's disease and premature brain aging.

Eggs: This breakfast favorite is loaded with selenium -- a mineral that could help make your brain years younger.

Mustard: What makes mustard so amazing? Turmeric. Getting just 17 milligrams of it a day -- about a teaspoon of mustard -- can help activate genes that control the cleanup of cellular waste in your brain.

Salmon: This pink fish is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, including the type thought to have the most antiaging effects on the brain. A DHA supplement is another way to get your omega-3s.

Kale: Getting at least three servings a day of dark, leafy greens high in carotenoids and flavonoids can slow mental decline associated with aging.

Ah! I love eating healthy! Something I do with Kale.. I make a turkey burger, dress it with all the condiments (pickles, ketchup etc) and use the Kale as my bun. Its yummy, crunchy & healthy!
