Keep Memory Alive is more than a fundraising organization. We want to help people maintain brain health. One of the most important changes any of us can make that will have a direct impact on our brain (and overall) health is to modify the foods we eat. What's good for the heart is good for the brain.
Dr. Michael Roizen, MD, Cleveland Clinic's Chief Wellness Officer and a frequent guest on TV's Dr. Oz show, has developed a guide, Foods for Brain Health, based on the latest research. Some of his advice:
- Reduce saturated fat intake
- Eliminate trans fats from your diet
- Avoid added sugars and syrups
- Eat whole grains instead of enriched, bleached or refined flour
Chef Alex Stratta, James Beard award recipient and star of Iron Chef and Top Chef Masters, has collaborated with Keep Memory Alive to produce brain healthy recipes.
