These 5 Foods Will Stop Your Brain From Shrinking

I ate eggs every day for a month and THIS happened

My colleague Catherine (one of my favorite Nutritionists) just wrote this article about eggs last week. I thought it was fantastic and wanted to share… _______ When I was a kid, my mom would only allow us to eat eggs every other day. We had “Egg Days” and cereal days.
