Brain-Boosting Recipes for Busy People

Time and convenience are the number one reason for busy people to eat takeaway and processed food. Preparing clean food at home is great for brain health and with a little bit of planning, can be fun and quick at the same time.
I have made it my mission to find and test recipes that are simple and quick to make.  Recipes that are nutritious, tasty and boost brain performance. Please try them and include them in your weekly meal planner. I would love to hear your feedback and also hear your favourite recipes.
