Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is a sample recipe from over 100 that are included in Brain Food For Kids. These recipes have been created with children in mind, but can also be enjoyed by adults. They contain the foods that are said to be the most beneficial for the brain, and in some instances have been shown to improve IQ, memory, attention span, and concentration.

AVOCADO DIP

Crunchy raw vegetables seem to be more acceptable to many children, and dipping them into this nutritious garlicky guacamole adds to the appeal.

Serves 24

1 ripe medium-size avocado

1 small garlic clove, crushed

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp mayonnaise

various raw vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, cucumber, celery, baby corn, carrots, snow peas

1 Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop the flesh out of the skin. Transfer the flesh to a blender or processor and add the garlic, lemon juice, and mayonnaise. Process until the dip is the consistency you prefer. Alternatively, place the ingredients in a bowl and mash together.

2 Prepare the vegetables to dip into the avocado mixture: cut broccoli and cauliflower into florets; de-seed the peppers and cut into strips; cut celery, cucumber, and carrots into sticks, and leave snow peas and baby corn whole. You may wish to blanche the snow peas or corn slightly first. Serve with the dip.

Brain Box

Although avocados are fairly high in fat, it is the beneficial monounsaturated type. Avocados are best eaten when just ripe to get the full benefit of their antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E, which protect brain cells against destructive free radicals. They also contain B-complex vitamins for memory and clarity of thought.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
