Plenty of research shows that a diet rich in produce offers valuable nutrients not just for your body, but for your mental well-being.
But here’s the irony: If you focus exclusively on the mental and physical health perks — instead of how delicious healthy foods can be — you may have a harder time reaping those benefits.
So to really use food to fuel your body and your mind, it may help to try letting your taste buds guide you to delicious dishes that also happen to be nutritious.
Before you jump in and redesign your entire diet in one fell swoop, make one change at a time.
So instead of turning down both bread and fries at your next dinner out, start off by making just one swap, such as trading the fries for roasted cauliflower, but letting yourself have a piece of bread.
This will help your mind adjust to the healthy changes instead of retaliating against deprivation mode.
3 p.m. snackers, take heart: Preparing your indulgences in advance is a research-backed strategy for keeping your cravings in check.
. In a series of field studies surveying real office environments, researchers from Carnegie Mellon University found that employees who decided on their lunch orders in the morning consumed five percent fewer calories than their colleagues who made their choices in the moment.
By planning your lunch or snack time menu ahead of time — and planning something nutritious yet delicious — you’ll get to eat what you want… and your brain will benefit, too.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
