Does your mind sometimes wander during meetings at work or conversations at home? Do you have trouble remembering friends' phone numbers? Are you often down in the dumps for no apparent reason? Changing your diet can help you think more clearly and feel better. This practical guide, covers the specific nutrients that can alleviate everything from poor concentration and muffled thinking to depression and stress - plus more than 100 recipes incorporating them in delicious dishes for every meal. It explains the general principles of good nutrition in jargon-free, easy-to-understand language and then focuses on specific needs. Drawing on scientific evidence, it advises on how to feed the brain by eating foods rich in zinc, boron, rosemary and ginger. Individual chapters cover every aspect of mental activity, with recipes designed to increase concentration, encourage clear thinking and revive powers of memory. For those interested in controlling moods, adding high-protein foods such as meat, poultry, cheese and eggs to the daily diet provides a natural, inexpensive and entirely safe way to feel better fast. This guide features foods that calm and soothe, inspire feelings of well-being and lift a flagging spirit. Among the many delicious recipes are fresh mushroom soup (good for depression) and a creamy iced terrine of summer fruits that is delightfully refreshing. To make sure that the diet contains enough vitamins and minerals, there is also advice on recommended daily requirements.
