    Wait until you hear what our guest Board Certified Neurologist, Dr. David Perlmutter, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Grain Brain, has to say about what foods will and won’t positively affect your brain health.  You may have heard the controversy resulting from his declaration that wheat, sugar and carbs have devastating effects on brain function.  He further turned upside down the perception that eating foods such as butter (yes, butter), coconut oil, beef, and other sources of good fats are a “no no.”  In fact, he says, Yes, they are right foods – all are important for your brain’s short and long term health. In just a few minutes, we are going to find out why fats, not carbs, are essential for mental sharpness!  And, we’ll ask Dr. Perlmutter to share some of the 150 delicious nutritious recipes found in Dr. Perlmutter’s newly released The Grain Brain Cookbook.  A few caught my eye: Eggs Benedict with Zucchini Pancakes, Almond Crusted Chicken Strips, Grilled Parmesan Tomatoes, Grilled Spiced Flank Steak, and Lemon Souffle Pudding!
