Doing this sometimes intense Shadow work can mean that our brains are working extra hard to rewire our thought patterns and look at things differently. Let’s show the mind some love with this bowl filled with foods that are good for the brain — including healthy fats from avocado, walnuts, and egg yolks.

Recipe Notes

If you like fish, Top this with some grilled or broiled salmon for some extra brain-healthy omega-3s. I broil mine in the oven on high for 2 minutes, skin side-up and seasoned with salt and smoked paprika.
