We are what we eat and so our memory is linked to food.
The helplessness that overwhelms us when one forgets a name can be embarrassing. In this age of instant googling, this is just the start of the ebbing process where memory is gradually relegated to a shrinking space in our brains. Enter Master Chef India shipra Khanna who tells you about the fish that helps you meditate or a walnut that prevents you from going nuts. This amazing book of recipes brings to us on a platter the food that helps us in strengthening our mind and memory. And this food is to be found not in some exotic location but in our own kitchen. Try her recipes and see for yourself how you can fight the complacency and sloth that come in the way of your exercise and positive action, thereby making for a better life. From chicken recipes that keep ageing away to recipes made with coconut oil that help fight memory loss, super foods for awesome memory is the book you will never forget.
Did you know extra virgin oil fights against proteins that are toxic to the brain and that include Alzheimer’s? Did you know coconut helps fight bad bacteria? Broccoli is said to even prevent and fight cancer. A diet filled with green leafy vegetables protects us from various heart related problems. She talks about a lot of other ingredients like almonds, walnut, beetroot, avocado, poultry, salmon, egg yolk, etc. She not only mentions the various health benefits that each of these have, but also suggests few lip-smacking simple recipes using these ingredients. Most of the recipes are easy and can be done within 15-20 mins max. She has also included pictures for some recipes that tempt you to try them out as soon as possible.
MasterChef India @shiprakhanna brings to us recipes that help strengthening both our mind and memory. What I love about this book is that the ingredients used can be found in our kitchen. If one of your goals for 2018 is to eat healthy and nutritious food then this is the perfect guide for you. Since I’m a vegetarian I didn’t try everything, but if you don’t have any restrictions you should definitely try all the recipes. I highly recommend it.
