If you’re finding yourself getting easily distracted at work and you feel your productivity could be better, read on to find out which foods can help you focus better and improve your efficiency at work.
Powerful little berries that pack a punch when it comes to nutrients! Look no further than blueberries when it comes to getting a boost of vitamin C, vitamin K1 and manganese. Being high in antioxidants, blueberries are your brain’s best friend for memory and learning. Why not sprinkle a handful of blueberries over your morning cereal or yoghurt, or save them for a healthy snack later in the day!
Load up on greens! There are many positive benefits to consuming leafy greens each day, including supporting brain function and concentration. Including greens into your diet is super easy! Why not make our Mediterranean Chicken Salad or try out our Tropi-Kale Juice, for a good hit of greens.
Having eggs for breakfast may be exactly what your brain needs in the morning! Just having one egg can provide a good dose of daily nutrients that are associated with a healthy brain. If eggs in the morning isn’t your thing, then treat yourself to a hearty lunch like our Chicken Ramen, which is packed with nutrients and topped with a delicious egg!
Feed your brain with healthy fats that are found in oily fish such as salmon, tuna or mackerel. They are packed with omega-3 fatty acids which are vital when it comes to healthy brain function and general wellbeing.
