Salmon, and other fatty fish, have been found to slow the progression of age-related memory loss and even decrease the risk of dementia. In addition to combatting memory problems as you age, foods with a high Omega-3 content positively affect numerous brain functions.

As for the veggies in this dish?

• Sweet potatoes are incredibly nutritious with a host of benefits. They boost immunity, stabilize blood sugar, support vision and gut health, and according to animal studies, may improve brain health as well.

• Tomatoes are packed with inflammation-fighting antioxidants and are among the best sources of lycopene, which may reduce the risk of cancer when consumed in high amounts.

• Kale is also rich in antioxidants and contains sulfur and glucosinolates, which help eliminate toxins from the body.

• Lastly, citrus fruits combat oxidative damage and protect against cognitive decline while improving brain function. Oxidative damage plays an integral role in an array of degenerative diseases, so adding citrus-rich dishes like this one to your recipe book is a great way to look after your brain.
