Go Green !

A recent study in Neurology found that eating leafy greens is associated with better memory and a more youthful brain. Healthy participants underwent yearly cognitive testing and submitted dietary histories as to how often they ate leafy greens such as spinach, kale, arugula and romaine lettuce. Over a 10 year follow up, those that ate the most leafy greens performed dramatically better than those that ate the least. The difference was equivalent to being 11 years younger in age!
