Brain Food: Holiday Treats to Boost Your EPPP Success  

Eat, drink, and be merry… and study. Balancing holiday fun with EPPP prep can be a challenge worth taking on. So can balancing a diet that’s both festive and brain friendly.

Here are six foods that Food Network mentioned are good for brain function:

  1. Spinach and/or leafy greens

Research claims spinach has time-turning powers, making your brain function like it did when it was five years younger.

  1. Eggs

They are rich in choline for memory, protein for muscle, and lutein for eyesight. You had better grab some deviled eggs off the appetizer table before they’re all gone.

  1. Salmon

Omega fats are good for brain development and function as well as a decrease in inflammation. Go ahead and get one more sliver of smoked salmon for your plate.

  1. Berries

Antioxidants are to blame for improved short-term memory.

  1. Oatmeal

A smart breakfast choice for your morning EPPP study session, oatmeal wakes up your brain.

  1. Broccoli 

With vitamins C and E, broccoli boosts immunity. Fight that flu you can’t seem to avoid every winter season. 

It sounds like a power smoothie with berries, spinach, and oats would be a great way to start your day. But since it’s the holidays, perhaps something fresh out of the oven might taste more like home for the holidays. Check out Food Network’s breakfast casserole containing eggs and spinach, here.
