Recently we’ve been diving deeper into what it means to look after our brains, and ways that we can support them with nourishing brain foods and simple lifestyle changes. But where information often falls short is how we can take these nourishing foods and incorporate them into day-to-day recipes that we’ll happily enjoy for life. That’s one part of my role here at Food Matters, giving you simple solutions to help you make healthy choices, and when it comes to brain foods, that’s no different. This week, enjoy one of these 7 recipes for long-lasting brain health, and come back next week to let me know how good you feel!

6. Prebiotic Tray Bake & Tahini Drizzle

This prebiotic bake is pimped up with a tangy garlic tahini drizzle. Roasting is a great way to cheer up any vegetable that may have been left in the fridge too long. The vegetables all cook at different speeds, so some are crunchier than others, which adds to the beauty of this dish.

Craving something nutty? Try this banana, coconut and almond smoothie! In addition to the delicious taste, you can expect to strengthen your immunity with bananas, improve brain functionality with almonds, and replenish electrolytes with coconut.
