Note on ingredients: Garlic and onions are in the suspect category of the Bulletproof Diet, because they inhibit alpha brain waves and could affect your mood – and depending on where you get them, could be moldy. For that reason, it’s not recommended that you eat garlic and onions often. Tomatoes are in the nightshade family and can cause inflammation in sensitive people.
