Sweet Talkin' Treats

Sleep and healthy eating are the most efficient ways to improve cognition and keep the brain functioning at peak potential. We can’t get you to bed earlier, but we can improve your diet! 


Eat more Blueberries! Your brain will thank you. Blueberries, when eaten on a regular basis, improve memory and reverse age-related declines in motor function, balance and coordination. They’re high in antioxidants, which help prevent certain diseases. And best of all, blueberries are delicious. Especially in muffins & pastries!


Here’s another lucky break for all of us with a sweet tooth chocolate expands brain function! Dark chocolate is antioxidant-rich and improves focus and concentration. Milk chocolate boosts memory and reaction time. Eat a cupcake, brownie or tasty bars for dessert! 


The incredible edible egg… it truly is. Eggs, specifically the yolks, are rich in choline, an essential nutrient to improving memory function. Coincidence that eggs are a necessary ingredient for just about ANY bakery treat? 


And, since the beginning of pastry baking coffee has been the accompaniment for dessert! Coffee has caffeine, which is actually good for the brain if ingested in moderation. Regular coffee drinking has been shown to reduce the risk of Dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and other mental disorders. Caffeine also contains antioxidants. A freshly brewed cup is also available!
