March preview: BIST on nutrition

We often associate eating better with getting a slimmer waist, but what we eat can have an impact on our brains too.

This month on the Brain Injury Society of Toronto blog, we’ll be providing  food for thought on nutrition. Dietitian Aimee Hayes,  with Aimee Hayes & Associates Inc., will provide information on how proper nutrition can aid brain function and what foods can aid in recovery from an acquired brain injury, as well as practical tips for making healthy food choices.

Also this month, Melissa Myers’ report will offer 10 tips for eating well on a budget and a BIST member will share their story of how eating well is helping them.

So, hide your bags of chips and cookies, stock up on your essentials from the basic food groups and check back next week to find out how to eat well on a budget.

In the meantime, here’s a couple of links to get you started with making healthy food choices.
