As kids we were told to eat more vegetables by our parents, now as parents and grandparents we have to remind ourselves to eat better.
In today's society, some consider healthy eating as another "fad" when really it is a necessity.
As we age our bodies need nutrients to maintain functions of all of our systems. In order to continue to move freely, feel good, and have the energy required to get through our busy days, proper nutrition is of the upmost importance.
Many of us now have become creatures of habit with convenience foods and have lost the desire to cook our own meals. If aging well is important to you, you may want to make "not until your finish your vegetables" your new motto.
Vegetables are rich in fiber, antioxidants, and phytonutrients that help you feel and look years younger! There really is no down side to eating more vegetables.
You will find vegetables listed in every anti-aging diet out there, so do yourself a favor and make vegetables the star of every meal.
