Word Search Puzzle: Heart and Brain Health for the Holidays

11 Dec

To so many people, the holidays mean food and lots of it.   It is so difficult to stay healthy and focus on eating well in that period from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day.

Please don’t forget that your brain depends on good blood flow to stay healthy and working well so, especially as the fudge and the latkes get passed around, it is critical to think and eat heart healthy.

Today you will be doing double duty:  practice your searching and sorting skills while focusing on affordable heart healthy foods.  In this word search puzzle, you are hunting for heart healthy foods that are all under $1 per serving.

Try these searching strategies to change your focus and let your brain know that there is more than one way to search and sort!

  • Start on the edges and work your way in.
  • Pick a letter and search for all words that start with that letter.
  • Quickly scan the whole puzzle and see if you can pick out whole words.
