Diets high in fruits and vegetables and low in meat improve brain functions.

A study from the American Academy of Neurology says your diet affects your brain’s mental and cognitive abilities. Researchers found that eating a lot of fruits and vegetables and small amounts of meat and dairy improved these abilities, specifically thinking and memory skills.
