Your brain is fat driven. The most efficient and effective fats are plant based. Because your brain does not have a fat storage tank (repository) you must enter new fat every 3 to 4 hours to maintain optimal function.
Substituting animal based fats inhibits the ability of your cells to send, receive and/or translate communications from your brain. These communications are how your cells determine when & how to behave. Communication failure or obstruction leads to degradation resulting in sickness, pain and disease.
We are not saying to be healthy you have to be vegan or vegetarian. It’s just that for this particular health habit you want to go with plant based fats.
You can easily provide a plant based fat by keeping a jar of nuts and seeds on or near your desk. When it’s time for new fat input simply portion out a palm-ful for a snack.
Your palm is the perfect measurement for a snack. Interestingly, your fist is the perfect size for a meal.
We suggest including brazil nuts, walnuts, cashews, pecans, almonds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, freeze dried celery, freeze dried peas, among your other favorites. We know that not all of these are nuts and seeds but the freeze dried vegetables contribute to brain function and help increase nutritional endurance.
White Chia Seeds are preferred for workplace use as they are extremely gelatinous and can sometimes end up stuck on your teeth. The white seeds become mostly transparent but the black ones do not. Nothing a good swishing of water can’t resolve but you can imagine how interesting the black ones would come across clinging to your front teeth.
By the way, peanuts are not nuts. Eat them if you like them; but they should not be relied upon as supporting this element.
