Hi guys!! Hope you’re avoiding a case of the Mondays today! 🙂
This morning I was up before the crack of dawn, finishing up some last minute review and then taking my favorite guy to the airport 😦
Did you know that carbs really are brain food? Your brain cells only use glucose as a food source (it’s a small enough molecule to cross the blood-brain barrier), and glucose is most readily broken down from carbohydrates. When you restrict carb intake, your body has to go through a long, more difficult process to break down protein into glucose, but that creates lots of side reactions and extra compounds, so it’s not efficient fuel for your brain!
Moral of the story– eat carbs before a mentally challenging task! 🙂
Following the carb trend, I had leftover pizza for breakfast part 2–
–and also for part of my lunch a little later. I love pizza, what can I say haha!
I have way more studying to do, so I better keep stocking up on brain food to keep myself going 😉
PS, last night I had an incredible meal– baked ravioli with eggplant and broccoli!
Step-by-step later tonight.
Question for you:
How do you fuel up for your day?
