 Taco Lettuce Wraps

Dr Jockers Comments:

Tenacity is the ability to remain steadfast and focused on accomplishing a specific goal or outcome.  Tenacity  is a function of the frontal lobe which is a higher level learning center of the brain.  When our body is highly inflamed we lose the ability to utilize the full function of our frontal lobe.

The frontal lobe also allows us to socially tactful and allows us to stay focused on a task.  Children and adults with major mental/emotional challenges and with attention deficit disorders have a low functioning frontal lobe.

This recipe is extremely anti-inflammatory and provides an abundance of key nutrients that enhance frontal lobe and overall brain function.  Grass-fed beef and grass-fed, raw dairy products are loaded with long-chain omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA which de-inflame the body and are the most important raw materials for healthy neuronal cells.

These foods are also rich in vitamin B12 and carnosine which help to protect the nervous system from oxidative stress.  The avocado and veggies add folic acid and unique anti-oxidants such as quercetin, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin that buffer oxidative stress and potentate higher level brain function.
