Figure out frittatas

The directions for the Spinach, Basil, and Tomato Frittatas on your website say to bake and refrigerate for up to a week — does that mean they're to be served cold or at room temperature?
— Rozz Rusinow, via email

Frittatas, like quiche, can be served hot or at room temperature. Although they'd be fine cold, the flavors would be a bit muted. So if you make frittatas ahead of time, set them out for 30 minutes or so to take the chill off.

Clear up brain fog

You left out a major contributor to brain fog (“How Can I Get Rid of Brain Fog?”) — candidiasis, or yeast overgrowth in the intestinal tract. When I attacked my candidiasis with an anticandida diet and oregano oil, my brain fog cleared greatly. Sugar, stress, toxins, and antibiotic use all contribute to candida overgrowth.

Stephen T. Sinatra, MD, advises taking 1-2 grams of phosphatidylserine (PS) daily to combat brain fog. The most I ever heard or read about was a medical study of bodybuilders taking unusually high doses of 800 mg daily. Did he mean take one to two pills of 60-100 mg daily?

Thank you for the feedback. “In an unpublished study, I found that my patients with pre-Alzheimer's or those recovering from stroke required 1-2 grams a day of pure PS,” says Sinatra, “but you can start with 100-200 mg three to four times a day.” Our medical editor, Robert Rountree, MD, concurs that high doses of PS are nontoxic.
