An old adage says, “we are what we eat”. So the food we consume has great significance. Our food choice not only affects our physical health but also our mental health. A well-balanced, healthy diet not only makes us physically strong but also mentally sound. Such a healthy diet lets our minds think clearly, stay alert and improve our attention span. Nutritionists advise us to eat a variety of foods to get the desired nutrients that boost our mental health. Such foods include fruits, vegetables, omega-3 fatty acids, dark green leafy veggies, nuts, beans, lentils, seeds, etc. These are called brain foods.
