It seems that each new issue of a scientific journal brings new proof of the all-around health benefits of proper nutrition.

Nutritionist Maggie Greenwood-Robinson and Dr. Frank Lawlis have organized each chapter around a different mental challenge; from relieving stress to improving your concentration or your power of recall. After defining the problem, the coauthors provide a full menu of types of foods; meal ideas; and individual recipes from main courses to side dishes, beverages, and desserts. Self-improvement for the cranium.

    I Also Recommend:

    This book is ridiculous!

    I wish a reviewer could give a book NEGATIVE STARS! If you are serious about helping your brain through nutrition, this book is NOT for you. The recipes include "healthy" ingredients like white bread, white sugar and a litany of other processed foods. This cookbook is only for those who don't cook at all and need to return part-time to the kitchen. There is a LOT of information on digestive health and I'm ashamed that this book has the word "brain" in the title. Please, if you already own this book, give it to someone you don't like. If you don't own this book yet, consider a book with legitimate information! I've listed some good ones below. Also, not found with b&n is "the gut and psychology syndrome". These books are based on solid science----Lawlis' book is NOT.
