Eating foods rich in B vitamins and omega-3s, like hummus, can be a real memory
booster, according to Samantha Heller, author of Get Smart.
And these nutrients will be especially brain-friendly if you combine them with a few extra ZZZs.
The Hummus Has It
Hummus is a Mediterranean staple made from vitamin B6-rich chickpeas and high-in-omega-3 olive oil — nutrients that Heller says are key to a swift, sharp memory.
A spinach salad with a little drizzle of olive oil and vinegar will net you brain-friendly nutrients as well, because spinach is rich in B9.
And tuna is another great source of both B vitamins and omega-3s.
