This message is especially dedicated to the great Jessica Spack in North Carolina.
To function at peak performance, you need to be in top shape, mentally and physically. A good diet makes a HUGE difference. Food to your body is like gas is to your car. The better food you put into your body, the more efficient it will be, and the better it will run. You will have more energy, be able to last longer, your brain will function better, you will look better and be more healthy overall.
Now here’s the problem with most people…they’re too busy. That’s a whole ‘nother blog, but below is a list of grab and go brain foods.
