Eating junky food is so easy. Not to mention it tastes awesome. So often it is much easier for time’s sake to get something unhealthy than it is to get something healthy. Many believe that as long as you look fit and healthy it means that you actually are. But that is a farce. What good is looking fit if your brain isn’t getting the proper nutrients?
Eating right can be easy! All you need is to be informed. The following infograph will show you simple foods you can eat to keep your mind bright and functioning and how you can even avoid the illnesses that can often come with age.
Stay away from the salty foods! Not only are they bad for your brain, they’re bad for your heart. Stop with the fast food. If it helps, carry a backpack with healthy snacks. Plan ahead!

The important thing is that you are aware of how the food you consume will affect you in the long run. If looking fit turns people on, shouldn’t a brain with a healthy dose of all the essentials be sexy too? [via]
