Brain Health Habits Sunday with Primed Recipe of Cucumber Delights

Enrich Your Mind

Not food again, but knowledge.

You need to keep growing, to keep learning new things and expand your mind. Reading books (especially before bed as it helps you sleep better), listening to spoken books on motivational sportspeople, listening to podcasts on nutrition, watching educational clips on youtube and helping others cook (for example) are all great ways to learn new skills and grow your mind’s capacity.

Challenge Your Mind

Perhaps a little similar to enrich your mind but here it is more along the lines of trying something new, exciting and challenging.

Examples could be traveling to a foreign country for a hiking holiday, doing a trail run for the first time (like the team from Mt. Labo – pictured below – will soon experience) or rock climbing.

The beauty of these activities is that they are usually performed outdoors so sun exposure can help keep your levels of Vitamin D where they need to be for healthy brain function.

Doing crossword puzzles or playing board games that get you thinking are also other ways to challenge your mind. Television is generally a passive activity that does little to enhance your brain function.

Better to do some fun learning activities with family, friends and colleagues.

Danish Pickled Cucumber and Pickled Ginger Recipes – Good for Gut Health

Pickled vegetables like kimchi, cucumbers and ginger are probiotics that can aid the health of your stomach. They make for delicious snacks or additions to salads and side dishes to your main meal. Here are two of my favorite pickled dishes.

Primed Danish Pickled Cucumbers

I was born in Auckland New Zealand and was adopted to a couple living in Hong Kong when I was 1-month old. My new Dad was an Aussie and my Mum Danish. This is where I learned to appreciate many Danish dishes such as Frickadella, Red Cabbage and Risalamande.

I will start with one of the simplest Danish dishes from my childhood that is also one of the tastiest. Danish Pickled Cucumbers are a great side dish to chicken, pork and beef, goes well in a salad and is a nice snack with julienne carrots. I prefer it on top of our Primed Tuna and Squash Patties.

Just as an aside, I only found out I was adopted when I was 28 years old!
