We all know that the food choices we make each day can help us keep off the pounds, feel more energy, help our bodies fight infections, or even reduce our risk of cancer. In this month’s Smart Nutrition segment, we’re going to consider diet's impact on a part of us we don't usually associate with food – our brains.

Monica Reinagel is a licensed nutritionist who blogs about diet and health at NutritionOverEasy.com and other online sites.  She joins Tom this morning to talk about an experimental diet that might be able to keep our brains healthy and sharp as we age, and maybe even protect against diseases like Alzheimer’s.
