Looking to rethink your diet this year?
For many people, the new year is a time to start thinking about their diet, and ways to improve it. And while healthy eating is important no matter your age, it can be particularly important for older adults whose nutritional needs change over time.
If you are looking to rethink your diet this year, here are a few tips:
- Consume less red meat and eat more fish. Not only is fish a lean meat that’s healthier on the body, but it can also help with cognitive health as well.
- Make some swaps with healthier options on dietary staples, like eating brown rice instead of white rice, whole wheat pasta, etc.
- Phase in significant changes and avoid going “cold turkey” on kicking sweets, coffee or other vices.
- Try meal planning and preparing your meals ahead of time. Meal planning helps in buying healthy options from the grocery store and ensures you always have a healthy eating option available.
