This episode of the Vegetarian Zen Podcast is all about brain-boosting foods for vegetarians. Vickie became interested in this after we recorded our last episode on MSG and really began to analyze some of the foods in our pantry. Much to our dismay, we still found more junk food than we cared to admit. Processed, junky foods often contribute to mind fog and fatigue. This led Vickie on a quest to learn more about veg-friendly whole foods that are can help you stay sharp and focused, both short- and long-term.
