Are you feeling foggy in your mind as the spring rains lead into summer heat? This Brain & Vision Blend recipe will enhance your cognitive function and brighten eyesight with tasty, antioxidant herbs and spices. Read on to learn how the spices in your cupboard—such as cloves, rosemary, sage, and turmeric—are improving your health and longevity!
Brain and Vision Spice-and-Herb Blend
The herbs and spices in this blend are packed with antioxidants that help protect your brain cells from aging and defend against the damage caused by toxins. This recipe—among 9 other herbal blends for common conditions—comes from my new book Secrets of Longevity Cookbook.
Simply mix in equal amounts:
There’s no need to measure these spices and herbs precisely, but I recommend using equal amounts of each spice in dried and ground forms. You can use a mortar and pestle or coffee grinder (that you use only for herbs and spices) to grind these. The consistency of the finished spices should be a dark powder. Store the blended spices in an airtight, glass jar to protect the volatile oils for six months to a year.
Add this blend to your meals just as you are finishing cooking the dish—about one minute before you turn off the heat. Sprinkle in your soups, stir-frys, fish and veggie dishes, and bean and grain dishes.
These herbs have plenty of health benefits in store for you! One caveat: if you are on medication, speak with your physician to make sure these herbs aren’t interfering with your treatment.
You can find plenty of healthy, tasty, and creative spice blends and other recipes for long and healthy living in Secrets of Longevity Cookbook, which is a great companion book to my Secrets of Longevity: Hundreds of Ways to Live to Be 100, now available on Kindle.
