Zusammenfassung

In diesem Kapitel … findest du viele nützliche Tipps für deine Ernährung. Wir vernachlässigen unser Gehirn und denken selten darüber nach, welchen Einfluss unser Essen auf unser Gehirn hat. Eine gesunde Ernährung ist nicht nur wichtig für die körperliche Gesundheit, sondern laut unzähligen Studien auch absolut wichtig für eine optimale und gesunde Gehirnfunktion. Mit welchen Nahrungsmitteln können wir unsere Leistung und geistige Gesundheit verbessern? Eines ist klar: Unter Fast Food leidet unser Gehirn. Gehen wir der Sache auf den Grund gehen und finden heraus, von welchen Lebensmitteln wir lieber die Finger lassen und bei welchen Nahrungsmitteln wir öfters zugreifen sollten.
