We’ve all heard about breakfast being one of the most important meals of the day—and it’s true! And what better way to jump-start your day than with a brain food boost! I like this recipe for its simple preparation, but also because it’s packed with nutrient-dense foods. Yogurt supplies protein and probiotics while walnuts and chia seeds give you a boost of omega-3 fatty acids. And you can’t go wrong with cacao nibs and mixed berries with their antioxidant, immune boosting powers. Eat this meal for breakfast or resize the amounts for a snack. Either way, it’s a great way to keep those brain cells healthy.
