Healthy Eating Over 60

Your body changes as you get older (we’ve noticed, right?!), but trying to eat clean (or well) will help you stay healthy. Here is a framework of healthy food to include in your daily eating plan.

Whatever your age, try to squeeze in the following food groups to keep your brain and body humming:

  • Fruit and vegetables – aim for at least five portions of a variety of fruit and veggies a day
  • Carbs – choose wholegrain varieties if you can…..gluten sensitivities?  Seek medical advice.
  • Milk and dairy foods – try almond milk or coconut milk.  Be careful of Soy for men.
  • Non-dairy protein – try to eat at least two portions of fish a week, including a portion of oily fish
  • Fats –  non-dairy milks (coconut, almond and cashew), avocado (1/4 slice), 15 almonds, chia seeds

Less salt

Too much salt can raise your blood pressure, which puts you at increased risk of health problems such as heart disease or a stroke. Ughhh, who needs that?!

Most of the salt we eat is already in foods such as cereals, bread, canned soups and other ready-prepared foods. Check food labels before you buy and choose ones that contain less salt. Don’t add salt to your food when cooking and at the table and try to have less than 6g of salt a day.

MOVE. SLEEP. SMILE. REPEAT.

What tricks do you use to keep your eating fresh and healthy?  What is your favorite food?
