United Supermarkets Dietitian: Walnuts and Blueberries Aren’t Just Tasty. They Promote Brain Health.
You may not always think of it, but some of the foods we eat can actually impact our brain health. The good news is, if you're a fan of snacking on walnuts or eating blueberries, you're actually doing yourself a favor.
United Supermarkets corporate dietitian Brenda Garcia says blueberries are a great source of key antioxidants. Why are antioxidants important? Well, Brenda says they help our brain function without getting any oddities. Without antioxidants, we would have less protection from the molecules that could damage our cells by creating plaque buildup.
Walnuts also are another great nutritional option, as they have Omega 3. This fatty acid can improve cardiovascular health and the health of your cell membranes.
Both are great mixed in with yogurt! You can find tons of recipes with blueberries and walnuts, as well as information about their nutritional value, on the Happy + Nourished blog by United Supermarkets. Here are just a few:
