Taking good care of your health has never been more important, and if you are finding you're constantly snacking during lockdown, then you're not alone. Many of us, our team included, are looking to the fridge out of boredom, restlessness and stress. 

So many of you asked for savoury snacks, so here you have one. A great afternoon choice to boost your brain health and productivity, packed with plenty of flavour and an abundance of nutrients.

Mackerel is the richest fish source of EPA/DHA, the healthiest type of omega 3 fatty acids which are important in the maintenance of healthy brain and nervous tissue. Diets rich in fish containing these fats have been linked to improved concentration and memory; whilst egg yolk contains a fat like B vitamin called choline. This choline promotes the release of certain neurotransmitters which helps improve our memory and reaction times.

Tasty and seriously good for you? We'll take it!

The Relationship between our Brain and our Gut

Posted by FFF FFF on May 15, 2019 3:30:41 PM

For every cell in your body, there are 9 bacteria in your gut (3). This community of bacteria is what we call our gut microbiome. It plays a very important role in our health and in our response to certain foods. Research is difficult because no 2 gut microbiomes are the same: every human has a microbiome that is as different as their DNA. This is because we all have a unique exposure to different bacteria depending on the microbes we inherit from our mother during birth (yes this really does occur in the way you are thinking – babies are born with a sterile gut and the first colonisers are bacteria from the mother’s birth canal and faeces) as well as through breastmilk. Further colonisation occurs by exposure to the environment, and the foods we eat.
