Anti-Aging Foods

T.O.D.-(Tip of The Day)…As women we are always trying to age as gracefully as possible at the expense of costly products and cosmetic procedures. I’ve been doing research and it seems it starts in the kitchen. No, I’m not a poster child for always doing the right thing so I’m not going to preach to you but I am going to share with you some nutritious food facts that have anti-aging powers and that help with heart disease and cancer.
1) Leafy Greens-Huge source of fiber, Vitamin C and K, folic acid, Vitamin A (which supports skin cell turnover) and 4 essential minerals: calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium.
2) Berries-Carry more anti-aging antioxidants than almost any other food. They lower disease risk, help prevent memory loss, and high in fiber.
3) Salmon-Prime source of Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin B12, and Vitamin D…all great for fighting heart disease and helping regulate blood pressure.
4) Nuts-Excellent source of protein, magnesium, Vitamin B and with heart disease and cancer.
5) Whole Grains-96% more fiber, magnesium, zinc, chromium, and Vitamins E and B6 then refined grains. Helps prevent heart disease, cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. Stick with whole grains, brown rice, or quinoa.
6) Yogurt-Low or nonfat yogurt are a great source of B Vitamins, protein, and calcium. It has probiotics-which block out disease-causing germs.
7) Veggies-Carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, lower risk of cancer, colds, and skin damage.
Try and incorporate proportioned amounts into your daily diet to help with aging and to fight disease!
