I know I need more veggies, but I do enjoy my fish and berries, Yum! Number 4 is especially good! Just think of how much healthier a certain someone could be if they drank tea and coffee. ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice of you to draw his attention to it!

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

It’s like having his own personal P.S.A. ๐Ÿ˜›

joyroses13 - April 3, 2019

True! He should be grateful! ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

That’s the reaction I’m going for ~> gratitude! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Tippy Gnu - April 3, 2019

I wonder who that person could be?

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

Someone who is surprising astute . . . especially given his lack of reliance on coffee!

Tippy Gnu - April 3, 2019

Oh yeah, well then, that would be me.

2. rivergirl1211 - April 3, 2019

I know I should… But I hate fatty fish and all nuts.

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

Bummer for you, man! ๐Ÿ™„

3. Jill Weatherholt - April 3, 2019

I eat spinach with my hard-boiled eggs in the morning. Also, I snack on walnuts all day. Just a few, keep you from getting hungry. ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

We’re positively “nutty” here, Jill. We sprinkle almonds, peanuts, walnuts, and cashews on our lunch salads (together with raisins, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds). Yum. ๐Ÿ˜€

This illustrates just how powerful the coffee and tea lobby is, that they can get Harvard University to include their poisonous products in a nutrition recommendation. But did you notice how they couch their recommendation with the word “might”? And one study doesn’t prove anything. I’ll bet you can hop people up on any stimulant, whether it be caffeine, amphetamines, or ecstasy, and they’d perform better on tests of mental function. At least until the drugs wore off. Nope, I’m not convinced.

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

“Might” is a mighty word indeed . . . especially when used in conjunction with dubious statistics or imprecise phrases like “up to.”

E.g.: On the coffee diet you might lose “up to” 50 pounds a day! ๐Ÿ™„

Tippy Gnu - April 3, 2019

Yes indeed. And I see you still have the canny wit of an ex-lawyer.

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

Wait! Are you saying that I still know how to “fudge” the facts?

5. L. Marie - April 3, 2019

Great list, Nancy! I just had a cup of coffee, so I feel entirely justified to have another! ๐Ÿ˜€

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

Me too! Those folks at Harvard iz smart . . .

6. mybeautfulthings - April 3, 2019

Thank you for this. I also bought a new cook book recently called “Brain Food” by Lisa Mosconi – doing all we can to keep going! Love to you ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

It’s a good idea to keep our brains “happy” ~> they love it!

7. Ally Bean - April 3, 2019

Wow. A shoutout like no other. Tippy Gnu this blog’s for you!

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

Alas, he’s still not convinced and coffee is a good thing. ๐Ÿ™„

Ally Bean - April 4, 2019

Oh my! Some people… ๐Ÿคจ

8. Kate Crimmins - April 3, 2019

Umm…like where’s the pizza and potato chips?

Joanne Sisco - April 3, 2019

… and chocolate? I’m pretty sure it was meant to be on that list, maybe right after vegetables. After all, cocoa does originate from a plant.

Kate Crimmins - April 3, 2019

My kind of woman!

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

Chocolate is a good mood food . . . being in a good mood is good for our brain . . . ergo, chocolate SHOULD be on the list!

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

Pizza and potato chips didn’t make the Top 5 list . . . but they still taste good!

9. anotherday2paradise - April 3, 2019

All on my daily eating list, Nancy. You are what you eat.

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

That’s why you still have the sense you was born with!

10. Behind the Story - April 3, 2019

Some of my favorite foods. I always have greens and berries in my morning smoothy. On alternate days I sprinkle walnuts and pumpkin seeds on my oatmeal or quinoa. After that, coffee. Salmon is good for dinner. And then, chocolate for dessert.

nrhatch - April 3, 2019

Your breakfast sets the right tone for the day, Nicki! And chocolate is the perfect “night cap.” ๐Ÿ˜€

11. Debra - April 3, 2019

I could “up” the fatty fish, but otherwise, I’m eating the right diet, according to this list. ๐Ÿ™‚ I lost a friend to Alzheimer’s today…I know it’s touched you more personally. I do want to do all I can to nourish my brain! Thank you, Nancy.

nrhatch - April 4, 2019

Sorry for your loss, Debra. That final good-bye is always so hard.

I feel the same about nourishing my brain ~> having synapses firing “on all cylinders” as long as I’m here would be great.

12. William D'Andrea - April 5, 2019

I’ve been having spinach with my main meal, every day for the past few months. I’ve discovered that Popeye was right! Strong to the finish!

nrhatch - April 5, 2019

Go Greens!

13. Tiny - April 12, 2019

I should have lots of brain power by now after eating these food daily, with the exception of walnuts. Have to add that…walnut ice cream perhaps.

nrhatch - April 12, 2019

Now you’re talking! My dad loved black walnut ice cream or ice cream covered with walnuts in syrup.
