Brainfood” Makes the Dictionary!

A fun arti­cle from the BBC high­lights some of the lat­est entries to the 2.5 billion-word data­base of words in the Collins Eng­lish Dic­tio­nary, 9th edition.

We were of course biased and happy to see “brain­food” as a newly minted word. Accord­ing to Webster’s New Mil­len­nium™ Dic­tio­nary of Eng­lish, they define “brain food”:

Part of Speech: n
Def­i­n­i­tion: any food that is con­sid­ered to aid intel­li­gence, mem­ory, or cre­ativ­ity; by exten­sion, any intel­lec­tual sustenance

We’d like to add Sharp­Brains to the list of brain foods! If you need some puz­zles to pick up your men­tal metab­o­lism, see how you do on these. Or maybe delve into some sci­ence and see if that expands your men­tal waist­line a bit. Just save room for dessert!
