Lutein, found in leafy greens, may counter cognitive aging — ScienceDaily

Spinach and kale are favorites of those looking to stay physically fit, but they also could keep consumers cognitively fit, according to a new study. The study, which included 60 adults aged 25 to 45, found that middle-aged participants with higher levels of lutein — a nutrient found in green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale, as well as avocados and eggs — had neural responses that were more on par with younger individuals than with their peers.

Today I made a warehouse club run.  I needed mineral water, coffee, and…spinach.  Seriously, I just bought a huge tub of organic spinach.  I have no clue what I’m going to use the spinach for but at least I’ll be improving my neural responses.

Kale?  No thanks.
