Here is a list of 20 scientifically proven brain-nourishing foods. What we eat every day creates and re-creates both our cells and our body! Although the brain comprises only 2 percent of the body by weight, it uses 25 percent of our energy. Since food is energy, our brains are vulnerable to each nutritional choice we make.
