Boost your day with some fiber-rich, brain-boosting blackberries! The Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging says that the polyphenols found in dark berries helps to clean up the cells that impair brain function and may reduce cognitive decline in older age. They’re also yummy and juicy! The perfect topping for some high protein organic Greek yogurt before or after your workout!
And speaking of dark, it’s time to give black tea its due. Green and white get all the well deserved press but black tea has its benefits too. Research from Rutgers University suggests that the the flavins and antioxidants in black tea may relieve sore muscles after intense workouts (think upper body HSM warm-up!), and may also lower you risk of heart attack. Sounds like the perfect drink after your workout with a delish snack of blackberries and yogurt!
