Sourdough Toast with Avocado, Halloumi, Pear & Walnuts Recipe

Walnuts make a great brain-boosting snack containing alpha-linolenic acid to help improve memory and the antioxidant called ellagic acid, which helps protect the brain from free radical damage. Avocadoes are a rich source of the antioxidant vitamin E that helps protect brain cells from oxidative stress caused by a build-up of free radicals. Eating foods high in vitamin E will support brain health and improved cognition.
