Plant Foods Help You Focus

Our brains need feeding well just like the rest of our vital organs.  Fear not, I’m not suggesting that you start eating squirrels.  Here, Paula Schott,  explains, in a short but sweet manner, how plant foods are good for our brains in a short but sweet manner. If plant foods are healthy for your brains, then we (I) can deduce that plant foods help you focus.

Most of the research is leaning toward vitamins and minerals in plant foods that providing protective antioxidant. Plant foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains contribute significantly to the overall dietary intake of antioxidants.

Some foods that are high in antioxidants are: berries, dried beans, pecans, Granny Smith apples, Russet potatoes and prunes. There are many other foods with antioxidants, but this is good place to start.

So next time you’re struggling to concentrate, try to resist the sweets and chocolate (I know, I’ve been there). Reach for the nuts or apples and remind yourself that plant foods help you focus.
