First, let’s give ourselves a high five for taking the first step and eating breakfast to begin with. Eating in the morning alone is known to make you smarter by tightening up your attention span, boosting your memory, and improving your cognitive ability. They don’t call it ‘the most important meal of the day’ for nothing! Breakfast also keeps you energized, which can also give you a nice competitive advantage over another interviewer whose last meal were those microwaved ramen noodles at midnight. If you are already on the breakfast bandwagon but need a little extra smarts for your next interview (who doesn’t), take a look at the following breakfast foods that will make you extra smart!

Blueberries & Bananas –

Blueberries are rich in antioxidants and help your memory, while bananas are full of potassium, which makes you more alert. Eating a combo of the two is sure to help you shoot off solid answers to the most challenging job interview questions.

Pastured Eggs- 

If you are a good old fashioned breakfast type, switch to pastured eggs for some added brain benefits you may not know about. Pastured eggs contain 7 times more Beta Carotene and 3 times more Vitamin E than factory eggs and they are loaded with brain boosting Choline and Tyrosene which help with cognition and alertness. Whipping up a plate of pastured eggs before your next interview is sure to give your brain the boost to keep you alert and ready for the inevitable interview curve balls.  Bonus: Sprinkle some cayenne pepper on the eggs to reduce stress and allow for better focus.

Avocados and Whole Grain Bread-

Avocados and whole grains both assist in proper blood flow, which is great for the brain’s function.  Avocados contain monosaturated fatty acids, which protect you brain’s nerve cells and vitamins that keep you alert and on-point. Whole grains level your blood sugar, therefore improve your concentration and energy levels as well. If you want to feel like Einstein walking into your next job interview, you might try the trendy, brain-boosting tag team Avocado and Whole Grain Toast. It even has a cute celeb name mash-up, Avo-toast!
