As we age we all become afraid of the dreaded word ALZHEIMER, The biggest question is how do we keep our brains sharp. Here are a couple of ways you can do that:
- Minimize trans-fat. This can be achieved by not frying your food.
- Minimize saturated fat intake. Fatty meats and full-fat dairy products contain high levels of saturated fat.
- Eat low mercury fish at least twice a week – wild salmon, and sardines.
- Have at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables daily.
HOW ARE WE GOING TO CHANGE OUR EATING HABITS TO ENSURE THAT WE ARE NOT DIAGNOSED WITH ALZHEIMER.
Jerk is a traditional way of BBQ in Jamaica. I use Walkerswood traditional Jamaican Jerk Seasoning. Use sparingly this seasoning is hot, spicy and GOOOOOD. This dish presents well; place on a platter and surround the fish with slices of fresh fruit and vegetables. I recommend pineapple, green and black large seedless grapes cut in half, mango, lime, papaya, bell pepper and purple onions.
3 pounds salmon fillet, skinless, 1 tablespoon jerk seasoning, 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
Rub jerk seasoning on both sides of the fish sprinkle with olive oil. Put the salmon pieces in a shallow glass pan. Cover with foil and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours. Remove from the refrigerator and allow the fish to reach room temperature. Bake at 350 degrees until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
