Could you please check this sentence?
I also don't know which pronoun is better.

I usually have meat or seafood as the main course, which is or are high in protein and which helps my brain work more efficiently. Also, it or they will make me feel more awake and focused.

If you really want to keep which, reorder the sentence to:

For my main course, I usually have meat or seafood, both of which are high in protein ...
