I love feeding my brain foods that
make it work better. I’m not sure what’s
doing what, but I don’t give out so easily
to fatigue & fogginess of mind.
I’ve made some changes in my food
and since then I sort of experienced a
rebirth. Actually, wild blueberries,
which I now have daily in smoothies
are known by the nickname, according
to one author, as “a resurrection food.”
That’s how I feel. When I feel a lag in
energy, I take a swig of my brought-
with-me smoothie and it picks
me right up.
My brain is constantly fed, glucose
being used up by stress almost as
fast as I can take it in. There is some
lag time depending upon how much
I take in at once.
A whole blenderful lasts quite a while–
two, even longer, but then I run low on
gas and have to fill up again.
Everything’s pretty stable–my blood
sugar, my moods, my energy. The more
stress, the more I need the smoothie.
I eat “normally” at other times but esp.
on the go or when I’m home just relaxing,
I prefer to consume the smoothie and
other cravings leave for a while–if even
I have them at all.
More smoothie, if I want it. Brain Power!
