Power Food to Protect Our Brains

We all want to stay mentally sharp as we age! Lifestyle factors influence our brain health and what we eat plays a significant role in preventing cognitive decline. Research shows that plant-based foods, loaded with beneficial phytonutrients, may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of neurodegenerative diseases. June is "Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month" and a good time to  learn what foods help us protect our memory and nervous system.  In addition, you'll discover how a brain-healthy diet also helps lower your risk of stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic diseases.  We'll explore how common cookware and supplements may expose you to brain damaging toxins. You’ll also hear what the latest research says about specific vitamins and nutrients, as well as what other lifestyle factors can make a difference in your cognitive well-being. Best of all, Susan will demonstrate how to cook some delicious plant-based dishes that you’ll get to taste and then take home recipes and resources to support healthy cognitive functioning throughout the years!
