REJUVENATE PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY
Spring is a great time to incorporate in-season foods into everyone's diet, and there are two that are fantastic for the brain. When thinking of spring, think spinach and strawberries. The brain loves B vitamins for energy and mood, and spinach is chock full of B vitamins. Plus, strawberries are one of the best foods for the brain because of the antioxidants that have been shown to keep the brain sharp.
