Cooking from the MIND Diet
Strategic snacking is a key facet of a brain-protective diet. Instead of ignoring hunger pangs, it is far better to reach for a snack made with brain-nourishing ingredients that help you stay energized and focused.
While it’s never too late to take care of your brain, the mid-life years have been identified as a golden opportunity to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s decades later. The good news is that risk factors for cognitive decline and dementia, including Alzheimer’s, can be reduced with a brain-protective diet, even in those with a family history.
In this virtual cooking class, you will learn five easy recipes for make-ahead snacks. Each ingredient was chosen for its neuroprotective benefit and inspired by the brain-healthy food groups in the MIND diet study. These snacks are definitely good for your brain, but they are also packed with delicious flavors and designed to satisfy.
We will guide you through the recipe specifically designed to be part of a brain-protective dietary pattern. By the end of class, you will have a stockpile of snacks, many of which can be stored in the freezer, and a set of recipes you can build on to strategically reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s. The recipes, including ingredients and equipment needed, will be sent out at least one week before the class so you’ll have time to shop for ingredients in advance.
Instructor: Annie Fenn, MD, is a physician, chef, and founder of the Brain Health Kitchen, the only culinary school of its kind focused specifically on fending off age-related cognitive decline. Her mission is to help people take care of their brain while still eating delicious food.
