Cannellini Beans – 1/3 cup canned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

Cognitive Ability

Cannellini beans are rich in thiamine (vitamin B1), which assists brain cell function along with cognition

Thiamine plays a key role in the production of acetylcholine. This neurotransmitter is required for memory and its deficiency can lead to cognitive decline

Weight Loss

Blocks the enzyme known as alpha-amylase, which is naturally produced by the pancreas.

Amylase breaks down complex starch molecules in the body and reduces them to simple sugars to improve absorption in the small intestine.

By blocking this enzyme, the metabolism of starches is slowed and the absorption of sugars are also reduced

Studies have shown that due to the content of a hormone called cholecystokinin (CCK), cannellini beans offer a sensation of satiety (1,2,3)

Nutritional Yeast – 1 tbsp nutritional yeast

Nutritional yeast provides a non-animal source of protein that contains all nine essential amino acids

Also widely regarded as a good source of B vitamins, including B12 and has a nutty, cheese-like flavor

In 2013, research published in the British Journal of Nutrition found it may boost post-exercise immunity

Athletes who ate 3 quarters of a teaspoon of a type of fiber found in nutritional yeast per day ended up having higher amounts of circulating monocytes two hours after intense exercise – higher, in fact, than their pre-workout numbers (4) – This signifies an increase in imune system activity

Turmeric – 1 tbsp turmeric

Alzheimer’s disease

Studies have shown that extracts of turmeric contain natural agents that block the formation of beta-amyloid; substance responsible for the plaques that obstruct cerebral function in Alzheimer’s disease.

Immune System

Turmeric contains a substance known as lipopolysaccharide, which helps stimulate the body’s immune system. Its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agents also help strengthen the immune system

Gastrointestinal Issues

The anti-inflammatory activity of curcumin lowers the chances of developing ulcers, is useful for constipation, cramping, and irritable bowel syndrome (5,6)

Sunflower seed butter over Cashew – 2 tbsp

Vitamin E

Helps naturally balance cholesterol, keeping good and bad levels in check

It also reduces free radical damage to slow aging in our bodies and reduce cell damage – one tablespoon provides 24% of our body’s daily needs


Magnesium is vital in keeping energy high, relieving muscle spasms; helping things go smoothly in the bathroom and helping us get deep, quality sleep at night

Almond Milk – 3/4 cup

One study in healthy adults showed that eating 66 grams almond oil every day for six weeks reduced triglycerides by 14%, as well as increased their HDL cholesterol by 6% – reduced risk of heart disease (9)

Stevia – 2 tsp

Doesn’t contribute calories or carbs to the diet and do not affect blood glucose or insulin response

Certain glycosides in stevia extract have been found to dilate blood vessels, increase sodium excretion, and urine output – could potentially help lower blood pressure
