Wait until you hear what our guest, Dr. David Perlmutter, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Grain Brain, has to say about what foods will and won’t positively affect our brain health. You may have heard the controversy resulting from his declaration that wheat, sugar and carbs have devastating effects on brain function. He further turned upside down the perception that eating foods such as butter (yes, butter), coconut oil, beef, and other sources of good fats are a “no no.” In fact, he says, Yes, they are right foods – all are important for your brain’s short and long term health. Together with co-host, Carolina Jantac, RD (Kid Kritics Approved) we are going to find out why fats, not carbs, are essential for mental sharpness!
We’ll also share some of the 150 delicious nutritious recipes found in Dr. Perlmutter’s newly released The Grain Brain Cookbook. A few caught my eye: Eggs Benedict with Zucchini Pancakes, Almond Crusted Chicken Strips, Grilled Parmesan Tomatoes, Grilled Spiced Flank Steak, and Lemon Souffle Pudding!
Come into our Family Food Experts Kitchen with Dr. Perlmutter, Carolina and me, to learn how to make smart brain food choices! Thursday, 1pm ET, on W4WN.com.
