- Matcha tea – with its glutamate amino acid called L-theanine; it’s rich in neurotransmitters which can help our memory and learning. My fav is matcha latte with sunflower seed milk (slightly sweetened with a pre-soaked medjool date. Mwah!)
- Dark green leafy veggies – rich in minerals, phytoenzymes and antioxidants, including iron which can help improve our mental processes whilst delivering oxygen to our brain.
- ‘Good’ fats – including walnuts, salmon, avocado, coconut oil. One of their functions is to help keep our brain cells flexible via healthy membranes.
- Coconut Yoghurt – the coconut-version helps avoid potential allergies (including to grains, soy and dairy). With the benefits of protein and minerals – live* yoghurt is also rich in probiotics which can assist our digestive and immune systems – AND actually make over 30 of our brain neurotransmitters; including our happy hormone, serotonin.
