New Year’s is a time for parties, celebrations…and
resolutions. It’s the most common time of the year when I hear from people who
want to change their habits and get healthy. If 2019 is the year you want to
ditch your unhealthy ways and become a Warrior for your brain health, start
with your pantry. This time I would like to help you make it a life change
instead of a yearly resolution.
Do a clean sweep and toss all the garbage and junk that’s
been polluting your body and brain. Ditch the sweet stuff that spikes your
blood sugar levels and leaves you with foggy thinking. Dump the Frankenstein
foods that disrupt your hormones, slow your metabolism, and make you pack on
the pounds. And trash the toxic “foodlike substances” that are linked to
inflammation, diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer.
Here’s a partial list
of what to toss:
Processed foods that contain high-fructose corn syrup,
artificial sweeteners, hydrogenated oils, and trans fats
Vegetable oils (corn, safflower, canola, and soy)
Fruit juice (even the 100% fruit kind)
Milk and dairy products
Cookies, cakes, candies, and other sweets
Condiments (ketchup, BBQ sauce, soy sauce, and mustard—unless
it’s gluten-free and sugar-free)
Jams, jellies, and syrup
Stock up on these
Brain Warrior basics (organic and fresh whenever possible):
Small amounts of fruit
Fish (wild salmon, tuna, and herring)
Lean beef, chicken, turkey, and lamb
Coconut wraps, zucchini wraps, and other bread replacements
Raw, unsalted seeds and nuts
Fresh and dried herbs and spices
Healthy oils (coconut, almond, macadamia nut, olive)
