Don’t forget (no pun intended) about the little fish when you’re looking to boost your memory. Sardines, anchovy, and mackerel are all rich in brain-friendly omega-3 fatty acids including docosahexanoic acid (DHA), which is shown to be important for memory. It is a delicious snack or light meal that is also a great source of vitamin E. Research suggests that foods high in vitamin E such as avocado (high in vitamin C as well) are correlated with a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

  • Yields: 2 Servings


½ cup BPA-free canned sardines or substitute with tuna

¼ cup peeled and diced cucumber

1 Tbs plain Greek yogurt (dairy-free option below)

1 Tbs lemon juice

1 tsp chopped fresh dill

1 avocado

black pepper to taste

chopped chives


1In a bowl, mix the sardines (or tuna), cucumber, greek yogurt (or veganaise), lemon juice, and dill.

2Season with pepper. Cover, and chill until serving.

3Slice the avocados lengthwise, and remove the pit by firmly embedding a heavy knife in the it and twisting. Scoop out the flesh of the avocado, leaving about ½ inch on the peel.

4Spoon the fish mixture into the hollowed centers of the avocado halves. Sprinkle with chopped chives.


For dairy-free version try olive-oil based Veganaise (definition: Veganaise is a conventionally available dairy and egg-free mayonnaise)
