There is a Mind Diet

Can you eat for a healthy mind? Research shows that eating a brain-healthy diet can help reduce Alzheimer’s risk. In addition, these foods work to boost overall cognitive and mental health. This MIND diet combines many important elements of two other popular nutrition plans proven to benefit heart health: the Mediterranean diet and the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet. MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay.

Not only is this diet for reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s, but it is also an overall good diet for giving you a good balance that is healthy and beneficial to your whole body.

How to Eat on the MIND Diet

  • Green leafy vegetables – at least 6 servings a week.
    Mixed greens and spinach work well with this.
  • Other veggies – at least once a day
  • Beans – at least 3 servings a week.
  • Berries – 2 or more servings a week
  • Whole grains – 3 or more servings a day.
  • Fish – once a week.
  • Poultry – twice a week.
  • Olive Oil should be used as your main cooking oil.

Compared to other diets ideas out there, this one is not specific about calorie intake or uses restrictions on food groups, snacks or times to eat. Go ahead and share this to help others eat for their health while promoting brain power and mental health.
