Stay young with these simple foods! PART II
Stay strong with Salmon
Salmon is a rich source of protein and Omega 3 fatty acids. Try to go in for two 3-ounce servings of this fish each week. Then healthy way to have it is to grill it and consume it with a whole-grain side dish like brown rice or barley salad.
Happy skin with Avocados
Avocados are great to keep age at bay! They have healthy monounsaturated fat that keeps skin well-hydrated. This encourages better absorption of vitamins and nutrients into your skin. A great way to include the avocado into your diet is to replace high-fat salad dressings and mayo.
Happy gut with Yogurt
Yogurt is a simple dairy product that offers myriad benefits. It is a rich source of calcium that helps bones stay strong and keep away osteoporosis. The good bacteria maintain gut health and help prevent intestinal disorders that can attack you as you age.
Toss in the Tomatoes
The humble tomato is a superstar as it contains lycopene that will ward off UV-induced damage like wrinkles. Cooked tomatoes are better than fresh as cooking them helps our bodies absorb more of lycopene.
Sharper eyesight with Eggs
This might come as a surprise, but egg yolk is rich in nutrients that lower the risk of cataracts and age-related eye degeneration.
Anti-aging drinks are fabulous!
Carrot juice can keep your memory from fading away. It contains luteolin, a flavonoid that reduces inflammation which is believed to be a cause of cognitive decline. Green tea is rich in anti-oxidants and brings down inflammation. Beet juice can help in keeping away dementia as this is rich in naturally occurring nitrates that boost blood flow to the frontal lobe of the brains. Pink grapefruit juice is known to keep skin younger and smoother. Red wine is great to unwind at the end of the day and also contains "resveratrol" which promotes better health by fighting off age-related illnesses.
