Your brain is made of…

13 Dec

food.

Yes.  Your body too for that matter.  And, although this is seemingly obvious, now it has been published so maybe we will start to take it in…

What we eat becomes us.  Our bones.  Our skin.  Our heart.  So why not make it good?

A policy even…

(Hint hint USDA… :P)

When we nourish ourselves we feel better.  This I KNOW to be true.  (Thank me that my Splenda days are over!)  And, nourishment comes in many forms.  FriendshipsYoga.  A hot steaming bowl of this (organic please) chicken because NOBODY-GETS-ALLERGIES-IN-WINTER-BAHHHH!!! soup.  Yum.

  Nourishment matters.

Now, we have health advocates and professionals writing about it.  What I like the most about the brain food reminder is that ‘skinniness’ and healthy vitality are DECOUPLED.  Um- thank you!  We want need yummy nutrients.  AND, they make our noggins happy :P!

Happy heads lead to joyful, jubilant, ENERGIZED bodies…

In all seriousness, this mind-body stuff matters.  Try it.  Feed your mind and then enjoy what your body can do.  Following:  “if you’re eating the typical American diet, you don’t feel much like exercising. Fill your plate with kale and wild-caught salmon and you’re bound to feel better — and ready to tackle the treadmill”  (Source).  Or, the yoga mat :).

Why would anyone keep starving their brain on corn…

Hint hint– USDA!!!

    Wasn’t it Hegel who said “Mann ist was er est” (man is what he eats)?

      Haha. This idea certainly is not new! I know it from my Iron Chef days and Brillat-Savarin: “Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es.” [Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are]. But in a nutshell- yes. Food matters! Happy- HEALTHY day :).
