The Diet that Fights Alzheimer’s

In my latest research, I’ve discovered several health professionals who suggest that the best food plan to prevent Alzheimer’s is the Mediterranean Diet.

What does this diet include?

  • Olive oil
  • Nuts
  • Fish
  • Poultry
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables

Basically, the idea is to eat real food, the food that God created – not the junk that man has invented. Think figs, spinach, black-eyes peas and apricots. Eat mostly plants, less meat and include herbs such as basil, oregano, rosemary, lemon, garlic and mint.

Three rules from the Mediterranean diet include:

  • Cook and eat at home
  • Get most of your protein from beans and fish
  • Make Extra Virgin Olive Oil your main fat

Although I’ve followed this diet for several years, I now have even more incentive. I’d rather eat plants every day and remember what I ate than fill my body with harmful carbs and fast-food and then forget who I am. I’ve experienced enough family dementia and Alzheimer’s to last me several lifetimes, thank you very much!

Here’s a recipe I tried this week, using some vegetables from my freezer while buying several that were on sale. My rule each week is to buy whatever veggies and fruits are on sale, then chop them and freeze them. I make a lot of smoothies, stir fries and soups.

My recipe for this week included:

  • Fresh green beans – with the tips chopped off
  • Red potatoes – quartered
  • Butternut squash – diced
  • Basil and Garlic – ground up and sprinkled throughout
  • Golden raisins – just because I like to add something creative because it’s fun

I mixed everything right in the casserole pan, drizzled it with some EVOO and baked it for one hour at 350. Delicious!

So I’m trying to be even more proactive about my Mediterranean diet or as I sometimes call it – my food plan to fight off Alzheimer’s. How about you? Want to join me?

    • That is absolutely true, but if there’s anything we can do to prevent its possible occurrence – I’m all for that. Anything I can do to prevent having my son struggle with his mother’s Alzheimer’s journey…I’ll do it.

  1. In my medical intuitive practice, I have often been consulted by family and friends of those whose parents or loved ones have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The origin of this disease is unknown, however much attention is being placed upon the growth of Amyloid plaques in the brain.Amyloid plaques are waxy and translucent protein-polysaccharide complexes that are deposited in organs or tissues during certain diseases. These deposits cause the degeneration of the organ or tissue involved. Amyloid plaques are associated with a number of conditions including Alzheimer’s disease, Hodgkin’s disease and Osteomyelitis.”

    • Thank you, Judy. I appreciate your comments and the incredible work you do. I think it’s important for all of us to watch our diets and stay out of the way of those pesky and ruinous plaques.
