Oily fish like salmon ish rich with omega 3, which is extremely beneficial for cognitive function and brain health. The recommendation for a healthy diet is two portions of fish a week. 


Chickpeas are a great source of vegan and gluten-free protein and fibre. They are also full of important vitamins and minerals such as iron, folate, and vitamin K (which helps the body to repair itself).

Butternut squash

Root vegetables such as butternut squash are full of dietary fibre, which is great for your digestive system. Surprisingly, root vegetables are also a great source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Some of these include vitamin A  (eye health) and vitamin C (immune system,) both of which can also help prevent cancer and obesity.
