My life has changed in so many wonderful ways since I’ve become a parent. Ways that I wouldn’t trade. But there’s a dark side to all this change. No. I’m not talking about deep personal conflict about where Stacie the individual ends and Stacie the mother begins. Or about coping with the beautiful, but painful shift in my relationship with my husband. Blah, blah. I’m talking about my memory.
People, I can’t remember anything anymore!
Who has the wherewithal to deal with major identity issues or relationship problems when I can’t remember where I put my damn keys. Or when I forget my winter coat in my child’s classroom for several days. In the winter! (True story.)
If you’re in the same boat—or you’re looking to avoid getting in—consider enriching your diet with these 10 Brain Foods for Moms. These tasty, nutrient-rich foods are packed with vitamins that help prevent memory loss. And, let’s be honest, who couldn’t use a little bit more avocado or wild salmon these days. (These foods also help fight the bulge in between Thanksgiving and other holiday gluttony!)
It’s really easy to incorporate most of the foods on the list. And, if there’s any lack of inspiration as to how, we’ve got you covered. Each food comes with it’s own recipe. So there’s no excuse.
In fact, I think I’ll make my Quinoa Huevos Rancheros tonight. (That takes care of eggs!) And defrost some Easy Kale & Walnut Pesto for tomorrow night. (Dark leafy greens, check!) See how easy this is?! When it’s back in shape, your brain will thank you.
