  • Plus, what does a neurologist eat every day to help with his brain health? He actually starts with what he’s drinking: The first thing he told me wasn’t related to food at all. “Hydration is a key component of brain health,” he says. “I drink plenty of water and try to keep track by filling a water bottle and going through it several times a day.” To his point, not drinking enough H20 can contribute to feeling tired and sluggish, two key symptoms of brain fog.

  • And it’s been established that there will be food shortages this fall and winter due to supply chain issues and labor shortages. Everything from bacon, chicken, and turkey is projected to be more sparse on shelves. The scarcity isn’t just going to cause issues with finding the items you need at the grocery store; it will also cause prices on some things to go up. According to Consumer Reports, you can expect to pay anywhere from 10 to 15% more for your festive birds this holiday season. Supply chain issues, labor shortages, continuing COVID-19 related interruptions, and climate change-related grain feed shortages mean that the turkeys’ production cost has increased.
  • Finally, the cutest Halloween treat is now on social media! Like a recipe straight out of the Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook, this charcuterie board pays homage to the Sanderson sisters by re-creating their likenesses out of a few spooky snacks, including brie for their faces, cheddar crumbles for Sarah’s hair, blackberries for Mary’s, and salami rolls for Winnie’s. (Courtney recommends folding the salami in half before rolling it and sticking it in the fridge to help it hold its shape.) The board is fleshed out with other tasty morsels like Trader Joe’s Ghosts & Bats Potato Snacks, mandarin wedges, halved kiwi berries, chips, crackers, and more. You just have to see the finished holiday board.
