We all know this by now: Eating right is smart. Eating right also can make you smart.
More accurately, eating the right foods can give your brain the nutritional support it needs to perform at the highest level, study after study seems to show.
We asked our friends on WGU's Facebook page what foods they used to fuel their brains. Their answers ranged from healthy to hilarious.
Among the healthy suggestions, some even sent in photos of their favorite mind meals, like the gluten-free, low-carb, high-protein chocolate pancakes pictured in this post. Others relied on quick-fix fuels whose health benefits may be questionable—there were lots who looked to caffeine, chocolate, sugary snacks, and energy drinks to get a study-time boost.
So what should you be eating to keep your gray matter in tip-top shape? Here are a few healthy ideas nutritional experts suggest—foods that support brain health in addition to their more widely known benefits to the rest of our bodies.
So what do you think? Sounds doable—and delicious—right? What are you going to add to your diet after reading this list? Are there any other foods you look to for brainpower and energy? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
