Do you want to feel younger ongoingly?
You’re never too old to start eating right and taking care of your body from the inside out. Try to incorporate these four foods into your diet to help keep your mind and body on the upside of life.
• Apples — they help keep your digestive system going strong, help to keep your teeth and gums healthy (if you can eat them with the skin) and are really adaptable – have them raw in salads, stewed with porridge or in a pie.
• Ginger — for aches and pains, ginger is packed full of powerful antioxidants to help fight inflammation and hurt muscles. It is also a great digestive plus stops feeling of nausea.
• Cherry juice — we need to sleep on our side to function optimally into our golden years. The favoured side is usually on your left side. If you’re having trouble getting to bed and staying asleep, opt to drink cherry juice in the evening as it has melatonin in it which is a natural hormone that helps to regulate your day-night cycle. Melatonin is stimulated when it is dark and makes you want to sleep.
• Spinach — full of magnesium, spinach can help maintain nerve function and regulate blood sugar. It also has lots of iron in it. Save and use the cooking water into a soup or gravy – as this also contains lots of minerals and nutrients. Also – young leaves are delicious in salads vs lettuce. One added plus to eating spinach is that it contains a chemical which helps to maintain your eyesight!
