Realtors: Four Foods to Keep You SharpJuly 10, 2017
As a Destin or 30A realtor, youâ€™re almost always on the go. Although youâ€™re not sitting in an office all day, which is one of the most unhealthy traits of the modern American,Â youâ€™re often in the car, grabbing lunch at a drive-through, and scarfing it down before your next appointment.
As a realtor, though, you rely on your memory and energy levels to sustain your career, both of which are greatly affected by diet.
So here are some of the bestÂ food you can eat to keep yourself healthy, happy, and hitting those quarterly numbers!
You already know the avocadoâ€™s reputation for creating glowing skin, but it is also rich in Vitamin K and folate which improve cognitive function.
Easy Recipe: Pit an avocado and then drop one egg yolk into each of the halves. Season with parsley, salt, and pepper and bake for 15 minutes at 425.
Eggs contain choline, which helps the brain create memory neurotransmitters and protects against dementia. Of course, choline is concentrated in the egg yolk, so no skipping that little ball of sunshine.
Easy Recipe: To really pack a protein punch, whip up an omelet with spinach, sprouts, and mushrooms.
Blueberries are one of the healthiest foods available. You can add them to a smoothie, a salad, or eat them as a snack. Keep a few handy for car rides or at your desk (wherever that may be). Theyâ€™re known to protect the brain from stress.
Easy Recipe: Â Create aÂ blueberry grilled cheese, with spinach, white cheese, and balsamic vinegar for an unexpectedly delicious flavor profile.
You already know salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for brain function. But did you know it helps reduce the risk of macular degeneration, cancer, and cardiovascular disease?
Easy Recipe: Mix garlic powder, basil, and salt in a small bowl and rub on to salmon filets, then cook in a skillet over medium heat using extra virgin olive oil.
Incorporating these, or other brain-boosting foods, is sure to improve your performance and energy levels at work and at home.
