However, food also plays a role in brain health—eating right can actually improve your memory. The best method for boosting brain function encourages good blood flow to the brain. To strengthen your memory, add these foods to your diet.

 

Eat your veggies. Getting adequate vegetables, especially cruciferous ones, including broccoli, cabbage and dark leafy greens, may help improve memory. Try a kale salad or substitute collard greens for a tortilla in your next sandwich wrap. Broccoli stir-fry is also an excellent option for lunch or dinner.

 

Oh sweet berries and cherries. Berries — especially dark ones, such as blackberries, blueberries and cherries — are a rich source of anthocyanins and other flavonoids that may boost memory function. Enjoy a handful of berries for a snack, mixed into cereal or baked into an antioxidant-rich dessert. You can reap these benefits from fresh, frozen or dried berries and cherries.

 

Work in walnuts. Well known for a positive impact on heart health, walnuts also may improve working memory. Snack on a handful of walnuts to satisfy midday hunger, add them to oatmeal or salad for crunch, or mix them into a vegetable stir-fry for extra protein.
