Brain Boosters and Brain Busters [infographic]

“Hey I’m getting Chinese, do you want anything?”

Normally I would say “Heck yeah! Get me some of that General Tso chicken!”

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! Eating healthy doesn’t need to be expensive. Stores have deals on fish and fruits all the time. Even nuts sometimes.

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]

Last Meals [infographic]

If asked to choose what my last meal on earth would be, the answer is simple: macaroni and cheese. However, the likelihood consciously eating a meal knowing all the while that it is my last is highly unlikely, and I hope it remains that way. There are very few circumstances where I would have the opportunity to choose something like that, and the ones that are currently coming to mind involve me committing a despicable crime.

This particular infographic presents last meals in a different way. It shows us what is believed to be the last meal of some of the most iconic laid-to-rest figures sorted by caloric content on a scale of simple to fancy. Weird, right? I like it.

For example, the most fancy and caloric of them all was Titanic Captain Edward Smith, eating oysters a la Russe (part of a 12-course meal). Somewhere in the middle we have Hemingway with a New York Strip, baked potato, and a caesar salad. One of my favorites has to be Frank Sinatra with a grilled cheese sandwich. More than anything, this infographic has got me realizing just how famous these people were to have a graphic designed according to the last thing they ate before heading six feet under. [via]
