Quite frequently, on the internet, you will see articles about brain foods that help prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s. Pure logic could dictate the answers to this but most people don’t pay attention. It is also part of the reason fast food is so popular in all western countries. It has even moved to Europe! In the past I have written about eating to your blood types. Those blogs were destroyed by a company that was not Godaddy. I think that as the holidays approach it is time to remind everyone again about the value of eating to your blood type. As a former nutritionist, I read the study when it was first released in medical journals before the scientists went public and made millions. It’s very simple. Blood type ‘O’ is the oldest. They are the meat eaters and fruits and vegetables. Dairy, breads, and even potatoes were not in their diets. It is one of the main reasons that they have celiac disease. The next two types to come along were ‘A’ and ‘B’. They are quite similar in that they both need to avoid dairy, wheat, heavy meats such as beef and pork. Finally, the last type is the ‘A/B’. They can eat absolutely everything. So bear that in mind during your holiday eating. It is important to avoid loss of memory by eating the brain foods such as blueberries, strawberries, bananas, kiwi, etc. You also need need to eat leafy green vegetables that does not include only lettuce, but spinach, kale, cabbage and bok choy just to name a few. It is important to eat a variety of colors of the vegetables besides green. When my children were young they knew that eating brain foods included yellow and orange vegetables as well. So as we all age, rethink your eating habits for the new year and try to eat a healthy diet. Your body and mind with thank you.
