New evidence this month links the Mediterranean diet to a “healthier and younger” brain, which keeps more volume as its age. This is not the first study to back this easy-to-follow diet, which is recommended by the American Alzheimer Association, for its help in maintaining memory and cognitive function as our brains age. The diet has also been linked to reducing your risk of Parkinson’s disease, cancer, type-2 diabetes, and a healthy weight. The Mediterranean diet includes incorporating whole, unprocessed foods into your diet and limiting most dairy and red meat.
The Mediterranean diet is easier to follow than you think! Foods on this diet include:
Easy snacks to boost your brain function and fuel your body throughout your day:

Whether you make New Year resolutions or not, most of us agree that the passing of a year and changing of the date is the perfect opportunity to analyze our priorities and focus on the future. We often think of how good (or bad) the last year was to us, what we accomplished (or didn’t), and who we met, helped, or lost along the way. Each year, the Nielsen company surveys Americans for their top New Year’s Resolutions. Can you guess what the top 5 are? Not surprisingly, they all fit into the following categories:
Spend less, save more money
Enjoy life to the fullest
Spend more time with family
Even if you are not the type to make resolutions, it’s safe to say that most of us want all these things for ourselves and for our friends and family. All of these things are good for our health, both emotionally and physically, and especially for our brains.
If you’re not a new year’s resolution person, check out these easy-to-keep resolutions that are achievable with minimum effort and little-to-no cost!
1. Drink more water
2. Sleep more
3. Sit less and stand more
4. Lighten up—and laugh more
