This week – Eating well over 65… Part 1
For adults over 65, the benefits of healthy eating include increased mental acuteness, resistance to illness and disease, higher energy levels, faster recuperation times, and better management of chronic health problems. As we age, eating well can also be the key to a positive outlook and staying emotionally balanced. But healthy eating doesn’t have to be about dieting and sacrifice. Whatever your age, eating well should be all about fresh, colourful food, creativity in the kitchen, and eating with friends.
Remember the old adage, you are what you eat? Make it your motto. When you choose a variety of colourful fruits and veggies, whole grains, and lean proteins you’ll feel vibrant and healthy, inside and out.
