Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with one of my good friends, and fellow health and wealth advocates, Eva McLaurin, Chef and Wellness Lifestyle expert on the topic of how food affects our clarity of mind and focus.
We spoke about how important our food intake is for our focus and how important our focus is for the success of our business.
I’m sure you’ve been there – that notification on social media sent you down a 30-minute spiral of distraction. Or maybe that 10am coffee you’re so used to taking a break with in your routine, actually took an hour out of your day, and left you spinning your wheels for more.
So what about food that affects our brain?
I mean doesn’t it go into our belly’s, through our digestive system and exit the body through the colon?
Well yes – but before it goes through that process, it lands in our gut, which actually has more neurons than our brain! Our gut is referred to as our 2nd brain and because of this, we have to be very cognizant of what we put into our bodies, because it will affect the way we think, how we feel about ourselves (you know confidence is key in entrepreneurship, right?) and our emotions. Check this article out if you don’t believe me, “The Pit in Your Stomach is Actually Your Second Brain.”
Ok, so now you know the truth about your gut and the brain…what are the foods that help you focus?
Here’s a running list of the foods that will help you stay off the coffee, stay focused long enough to “get shit done” and in the end, will allow you to MAKE MORE MONEY in your business so you can serve more people….
We narrowed it down to our top 10 foods that will support your focus and make the biggest impact on your mental clarity – think about how the food is shaped and it’s colors, for example Walnuts are shaped like the brain, and are also good for the brain! Beets are red like our blood, and helps to lower blood pressure…
- Chia Seeds
- Dark Chocolate
- Red cabbage

The big take-away from our talk was MEAL PREP. We’ve all heard it before, but Eva confirmed that the BEST way to ensure you’re getting the right nutrients for your brain, and not wasting time or money by going out to eat, is by prepping your meals 2x a week.
Forget cooking everyday, we’re talking meal prepping only 2x a week – whatever works for your schedule, so that you can have more time to do what you REALLY want to do. You’ll also save money – and we all know that’s important as an entrepreneur, resourcefulness!
By prepping your meals ahead of time, you’re taking back control of your day and what goes into your body.
