Brain Food – a book to feed the Brain

Lisa Mosconi PHD - Brain Food

Well, we’ve got diets that are good for the GUT now we have a book that tells us what to eat to keep what cognitive powers we ( I mean me ) have left. Brain Food written by Dr. Lisa Mosconi is a book I have ordered. A couple of tips drink more water and eat more fish …. that should keep you going until I’ve read the book.

BRAIN FOOD by Dr. Lisa Mosconi (Extract below)

The Surprising Science Of Eating For Cognitive Power

Published March 2018, Brain Food (Avery / Penguin Random House) is my first book, and is written to bring 15 years of research out of the lab and into everyone’s kitchens and everyday lives.

As a neuroscientist and a certified integrative nutritionist, I have laid out the science, and the recipes, to keep our minds powerful today, tomorrow, and over a long lifetime.

Like our bodies, our brains have very specific food requirements. And in this eye-opening book from an author who is both a neuroscientist and a certified integrative nutritionist, we learn what should be on our menu.

Dr. Lisa Mosconi, whose research spans an extraordinary range of specialties including brain science, the microbiome, and nutritional genomics, notes that the dietary needs of the brain are substantially different from those of the other organs, yet few of us have any idea what they might be. Her innovative approach to cognitive health incorporates concepts that most doctors have yet to learn. Busting through advice based on pseudoscience, Dr. Mosconi provides recommendations for a complete food plan, while calling out noteworthy surprises, including why that paleo diet you are following may not be ideal, why avoiding gluten may be a terrible mistake, and how simply getting enough water can dramatically improve alertness.

Including comprehensive lists of what to eat and what to avoid, a detailed quiz that will tell you where you are on the brain health spectrum, and 24 mouth-watering brain-boosting recipes that grow out of Dr. Mosconi’s own childhood in Italy, Brain Food gives us the ultimate plan for a healthy brain. Brain Food will appeal to anyone looking to improve memory, prevent cognitive decline, eliminate brain fog, lift depression, or just sharpen their edge.
