Prince Edward Island Stroke Recovery is the story of struggle to regain as many physical and mental abilities as possible that were taken away (at the blink of an eye) by that diabolical and catastrophic event called Stroke.
This journey is a search and application of puzzle pieces that can bring about acceptance of loss and the hope for building a new normal and getting on with the rest of your life after a stroke...

Brain-healthy foods in this recipe
Salmon is chock-full of DHA, the omega-3 fatty acid with the most evidence for brain benefits. Almost any salmon is a good choice for the brain, not just because of high good-for-you DHA levels but also because of relatively low levels of bad-for-you mercury. Wild salmon is probably a better choice than farmed salmon, due to lower levels of PCBs. Spinach and garlic may add to the brain benefits of this recipe!
