Being the home educating mother of 10 children, I can not afford to forget anything! Our children range from 3 – 27 years old. With 3 children married and 4 grandchildren (2 of whom are older than our youngest!), I really must maximize my memory. After all, just remembering all the birthdays can be a challenge!
Now you can see why I am drawn to the headlines of articles such as, “5 Foods to Improve Your Memory” or “Eat These and Remember More”. What strikes me most about these types of articles is not necessarily the foods listed, but rather, the focus on a few foods to the exclusion of the rest of the diet and lifestyle. An overall healthy diet filled with nutrient dense, traditionally prepared foods is the best protection against memory loss, as well as, many other health problems. And, do not forget lifestyle.
