Burgers with Chia Seeds

by | Feb 12, 2015 | Brain Health Recipes, Entreés, Nutrition | 2 comments

Summer is almost here, which means it’s time to get the grill fired up and barbecue with friends and family. So, how can you turn a classic burger into a brain boosting meal? One solution is to add chia seeds. Chia seeds are packed with omega 3’s which are crucial to a healthy brain. They also add to the protein you’ll get with the beef, as well as give you a great source of calcium, fiber, and manganese!

Another recommendation for a brain-healthier meal is to ditch the bun. Wheat breaks down to alcohol in our systems, and if you are newly recovering from a brain injury or are still feeling symptoms, wheat is one food that should be avoided to help you get better, faster. Instead, top your burger with avocado, tomato and lettuce!
