After a lazy weekend (like mine), it always takes a little extra something to get me back into the swing of things for the week. This blueberry, almond, and banana smoothie is packed full of foods to help with brain function, health, and memory.
Blueberries are full of antioxidants and flavonoids, which can can enhance memory and learning. Almonds are a great source of Vitamin E, which helps protect brain tissue. This keeps cells healthy and you thinking at your best.
Bananas are essential in smoothies for creaminess and thickness, but they also have antioxidants and dopamine, which can increase memory and attention levels. Hemp powder contains essential fatty acids, which are great for brain health. If you don’t have hemp powder, you can use hemp seeds or flax seeds.
Especially if you overindulged over the weekend (like my giant scoop of Cherry Garcia on Saturday), a smoothie is a great way to get back into healthy eating habits for the week.
Have a great week!
