Food for Thought and for Work

  1. 1. ==== ====Read more or more information here: ====Traveling through a small town in South Carolina, I saw an interesting tagline for a restaurant. Itread: Fish is brain food, bring a dumb friend and eat often. At first, I thought the sign was justplain funny. What a way to get people to eat fish. Then, when I told friends about the restaurant, Istarted to think that there was more to it than humor. I have read articles touting that eating fishdoes increase brain activity. This restaurant was promoting good heath in a veiled, humorousway. The more I thought about the message they were promoting, the more I thought about howimportant it is to feed your body the right things. I realized that eating the right foods is not onlyimportant for your heath, its also important for earning you wealth.We all know the saying: You are what you eat. Pink Flamingos are pink because of the shrimpthat they eat. In the same way, people who eat a cheeseburger and fries twice a day begin toresemble a cheeseburger and fries. Another truth is that the most successful people are fit andthey work at it just like they work on their careers. In an era of convenience, fast food, and drive-through drug stores, I challenge you to eat right as a way to feel and look better and as a way togain success in your profession.Here are four quick tips for changing the way you eat in order to promote increased intellectualoutput and productivity. Firstly, instead of having two eggs and bacon in the morning, try ahomemade fruit smoothie with a scoop of lean protein - you wont taste the protein, but youll getthe benefit of a breakfast that suppresses your hunger, allowing you to work hard without thinkingabout running out for a snack, while going easy on your waistline. Secondly, buy frozen fruit andvegetable packages in bulk at your local grocery store. Frozen foods can be cooked quickly anddont contain all the sodium found in canned food. In addition to using the frozen fruit in thesmoothies, it also makes for an easy, guilt-free desert to quell your sweet tooth cravings. Thirdly,for dinner, rather than swinging buy a fast food chain, keep frozen chicken and fish on hand anduse those frozen veggies to round out the meal. Lastly, to prevent yourself from succumbing tocandy or chips as an afternoon pick-me-up, keep healthy snacks on hand, like almonds and soynuts (salt-free and raw are healthiest). Because theyre high in protein, theyll cinch your hungermore effectively than empty calories.Eating the right foods and drinking plenty of water can significantly increase your brainpower.Cleansing your body goes hand-in-hand with purifying your mind of toxins and replenishing it withnutrients.
