We've all done it.
Misplaced our reading glasses, the car keys, the kids.
Kidding about the last one.
But seriously, is there really any way that we can improve our recall with natures super foods?
I think the key is
I like to think of Omega-3 fats as lubricant for the brain.
Similar to oiling a squeaky hinge.
So, dig in and load up, this is outstanding!
With only 270 calories per serving, this mouth-watering entrée is low-fat, easy to make and bursting with brain friendly omega-3 fats.
Asian Citrus Grilled Salmon
Makes 4 servings
• 4 (6-oz.) wild salmon steaks
• 1/2 c. reduced-sodium soy sauce
• 1/4 c. orange juice
• 2 Tbs. chopped garlic
• 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
• 2 tsp. tomato paste
• Juice of 1/2 lemon
1. Place your fish in a zip-top bag.
Mix the soy sauce, orange juice, garlic, mustard, tomato paste, and lemon juice in a bowl.
Pour into the bag with the salmon.
Seal the bag, pressing out excess air.
Refrigerate to marinate 4 to 6 hours.
2. Now, stoke up your grill.
Remove the salmon from the bag, reserving the marinade.
Place the salmon on the grill and cook, turning once, for about 5 minutes on each side, or longer for well done.
Don't forget about them, as you don't want them overdone.
For extra flavor, lightly drizzle a few tablespoons of the marinade on salmon during grilling.
Discard leftover marinade.

• Omega-3 Fatty Acids
There are good fats and bad fats, and omega-3 fatty acids fall solidly on the side of good.
Omega-3s are found primarily in fatty fish, certain nuts and seeds, and fortified foods.
A study conducted by researchers at the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago followed more than 3,000 men and women for six years to see how diet affected recall.
People who ate fish at least once a week had a 10 percent slower decline compared with those who did not eat fish, a difference that gave them the recall and thinking ability of a person three years younger.
• Folic Acid
The closest thing we have to a magic bullet for fixing memory problems is folic acid (also known as folate).
This nutrient may just be the single best way to lower blood levels of homocysteine, which is thought to damage blood vessels.
In addition, folic acid seems to have a direct effect on recall ability.
A study conducted at Tufts University in Boston followed about 320 men for three years.
Those who had high blood levels of homocysteine showed memory decline, but if the men ate foods rich in folic acid, their memories were protected.Tweet
