Discovering delicious recipes with impressive health benefits is easier than you might you think. And one reliable place for inspiration is Well+Good’s Cook With Us Facebook group.

 

This was initiated by the Cook With Us community where thousands of people interested in at-home cooking from all over the world gather. It’s a place to connect with others, exchange healthy recipes, and trade hard-won kitchen wisdom. Looking for a gluten-free birthday cake recipe? A dairy-free breakfast casserole? Got a bunch of Brussels sprouts you don’t know how to prepare? These are your people.

 

Research has repeatedly shown that food can be used to prevent cognitive decline. With eight delicious recipes, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to brain-boosting meals and snacks.

 

 


  • Lemon rosemary olive oil cake

Olive oil is one of the heroes of the Mediterranean diet because it’s full of monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants, both of which are good for your brain. Since this cake is made with olive oil and rosemary—an anti-inflammatory herb—it fits into three out of the four weekly challenges. It’s the perfect recipe to make for brunch.

 

  • Avocado chocolate mousse

This recipe fits the Week 1 and Week 4 themes since it’s made with avocado (um, best healthy fat ever?) and dark chocolate. Here’s what it’s not made with: dairy, gluten, eggs, or added sugar.

 

  • Gluten-free blueberry pie

Blueberries may be small, but they’re loaded with antioxidants. They’re also the star of this gluten-free pie. The crust is made with a mixture of coconut flour, hazelnut four, and tapioca starch. Besides being high in antioxidants, this dessert is full of fiber, too.

  • Beet hummus

Beets are full of antioxidants. Beet hummus is a simple (and delicious) way to cook with them. Pair it with veggies for a snack that’s loaded with antioxidants on top of antioxidants.

 

– Anti-inflammatory carrot cake smoothie

While incorporating spices into cooking is a no-brainer, they’re often overlooked as a smoothie ingredient. But not with this recipe, which combines cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger with carrots and pineapple. The end result is so warming and yummy it tastes like dessert.

 

 


  • Anti-inflammatory salad

This recipe uses turmeric, ginger, and garlic with Dijon mustard and olive oil to make a flavorful salad dressing. Since the dressing is olive oil-based, that means this salad fits the Week 1 cooking challenge, too.

 

 

  • Dark chocolate popcorn bark

Sweet, salty, and crunchy, this snack satisfies on multiple fronts. The best part? You only need four ingredients to make it. Dried cranberries add the perfect amount of tartness.

 

  • Chocolate reishi muffins

Reishi is a type of mushroom that’s linked to the prevention of cognitive decline as well as immune system supoprt. On their own, the taste is rich and earthy, but they’re downright delicious when baked into these muffins. Whip up a batch to eat for breakfast throughout the week.
