Memory Enhancers

Today I was thinking about the name of a song and for the life of me could not come up with it.  I hate it when I do that, I begin to think,  could I be getting old age memory already.  It happens you know, to people even younger than me.  I wonder if this is why old guys marry young women too help them remember.  I will send a note off to Hugh Heffner and let you know what he says.

In the mean time, I decided to Google a variety of websites offering smart eating solutions to brain health, I took the top 5 suggestions from each site and here they are in order of popularity.
  • Fish Oils from salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring or sardines.
  • Berries including blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries
  • Whole Grains try Aunt Ann’s Granola it rocks whole grains
  • Eggs provides 6 grams of protein each
  • Dark greens are a  source for many vitamins like  A, C, and K and folate, plus fiber and minerals.
Besides eating well, the recommendation was mental aerobics.  This is accomplished with interesting conversations, taking a class at an adult education center, reading good books, practicing meditation, and playing games.

Harley and I are already doing the top 5 nutritional recommendations so it looks like I will be playing more games.  Here is a link from the AARP website where I found some interesting  games.

  1. This is a true Blog happens all the time, but just a reminder if you ever forget the lyrics are words to a song, humm the track or music of the song it will come back to you in about five minutes. Try it, it workes.
