Fill your shopping bag with in-season fresh berries like blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. Why? The antioxidants in berries can potentially slow aging in the brain and body. Chia seeds add texture, fiber and omega 3-fatty acids — a fat your brain needs but your body can’t produce. This low-sugar jam will bring flavor and nutrition to your whole grain toast or, with a spoonful of almond butter, revamp your PB & J.
