Dehydration, stress, lack of sleep, and poor diet are all factors contributing to brain fog. Rachelle Robinett, a registered herbalist, recommends adding nootropics to your diet to help combat mental fatigue and support blood flow in the brain.
On the latest episode of Well+Good’s Plant-Based series, turmeric, black pepper, and cayenne pepper are used to make a delicious savory oats recipe for breakfast or as a snack.
Savory herbal oats
12 cups rolled oats
(blend of ten functional mushrooms) 14 tsp
1 finely chopped scallion
Flakes of dulse, 1 tablespoon
Miso sweet white 1 tsp
14 oz dried mushrooms
Ginger, grated, 1 tbsp
Sprinkle with seasoned rice wine vinegar
Mushrooms provide umami flavors, while scallions and ginger boost your cognition while providing anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and immune-boosting benefits. Dulse is a type of seaweed that helps promote thyroid health and is beneficial for regaining electrolytes after working out.
Fermented miso is excellent for your gut health and immunity. With the rice wine vinegar tang, ginger also improves gut health. Feel free to experiment with toppings – sesame seeds for crunch and healthy fats, turmeric for anti-inflammatory properties and spice, and sesame oil for flavor. Beyond just that spicy kick, turmeric helps lower neuro-inflammation, which, in turn, lowers anxiety and depression.
