Better Brain Food: Eat to Cheat Dementia and Cognitive Decline
The increase of the average lifespan is a triumph of modern medicine. On average, we can expect to live 10 or 20 years longer than our grandparents' generation. These extra years are a wonderful bonus, but also impose unprecedented challenges to our bodies and brains. Recent scientific investigations have uncovered foods and ingredients that can help protect brain cells from damage by oxidation and inflammation and keep the systems that support them working as well as possible.
In Better Brain Food, dietitian Ngaire Hobbins, an international authority on nutrition for aged care, presents a compelling argument that the food you eat can make a big difference to your quality of life as you age. Included in the book is the science behind these food choices and an assortment of recipes for categories such as:
- Power meals
- Fast salads
- Snacks and drinks
- Fruit and sweet things
- And more!
