Getting older may not be fun, but we can age gracefully by making the right food choices. Try eating more of these foods as you grow older and wiser and be assured of a healthy and long life. Below are a few tips on certain foods to consider.
Eggs are a readily available source of protein which protects from muscle and bone loss. Fatty fish, such as salmon, tuna and sardines are also a great source of fatty acids and protein. Oysters also offer a high dose of nutrients which supports your immune system.
Citrus fruits have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, but eat some of the rind or peels too! Fruits can help reduce your risk of getting diabetic as well as help in giving you a clear skin.
Healthy spices such as cinnamon, turmeric and rosemary are all anti-inflammatory and support cognition. Cinnamon, for instance, helps lower blood sugar levels while ginger and garlic are great for heart health.
Fresh or fermented milk derived naturally are healthy for the body and skin. Likewise, yogurt will flood your gut with good bacteria. Drinking enough diary products can help you maintain your weight and keep your body shape in balance.
Cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, kale, broccoli and brussels sprouts support detoxification and joint health. Additionally, eating more vegetables gives you a greater life span and an improved mental health.
There you go! It’s time to eat better for the good life ahead of you. Cheers to healthy eating habits.
