As we move into the new year, we’d all like to do everything we can to maintain our brain power. Successful aging starts long before we are old, with the habits of regular exercise, social interaction, intelligent eating and embracing intellectual challenges that we adopt in our 30s and 40s. How can we practice a brain-healthy lifestyle? What are the most effective approaches as we grow older, into our 60s and beyond?
Dr. Carol Greenwood led a project at Baycrest Health Sciences (an academic health sciences centre focused on aging) to develop an evidence-based cookbook. The recipes and meal plans are designed to help us provide our brains with superior nutrition to keep them sharp. Are there foods you should be eating to maintain your mind in top condition?
We welcome listener questions and stories about feeding the brain properly.
Guest: Carol Greenwood, PhD, is senior scientist at the Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest Health Sciences. She is professor of nutrition and brain health at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Dr. Greenwood is the lead author of MINDfull, a cookbook based firmly in scientific evidence and offering step-by-step kitchen guidance.
