In the U.K. we are busier than ever, with more demands placed on our time. We are expected to bring our best at work, at home and socially. Over the last 100 years, work has changed from being more manually based to being knowledge based and even jobs traditionally linked with manual labour have more of a need for knowledge and creative thinking than ever before.

It’s for that reason that we need to make sure our brain is in tip-top condition, and what we eat plays a huge part in that. It’s good news then that curry contains ingredients that are perfect for a brain boost. Here’s three ingredients to look for if you need to keep your brain in peak condition.

  1. Spinach

Spinach is full of antioxidants, and these stop the effect of free radicals in the body which can lead to mental decline. Also, tests done on rats show that eating spinach can lead to boosted memory. Saag Aloo anyone?

  1. Chickpeas

Chickpeas are full of magnesium, which is excellent for brain cell receptors. Chickpeas also contain protein which is good for alertness and carbohydrates that fuel your brain (https://www.inc.com/abigail-tracy/ten-minutes-for-lunch-eat-this.html). We’ve got an Afghan Chana which of stocked full of chickpeas, it’s tasty too!

  1. Lamb

Red meat gets a bit of a bad rap, and whilst you shouldn’t overdo it, it also contains lots of protein for alertness and vitamin B-12 which helps your nervous system and is vital for healthy brain function. Most of our curries come with different meat options, so simply choose Lamb from the from the drop-down menu.
