There’s no denying age causes our bodies to deteriorate a lot quicker. Perhaps with old age, you have to give up a certain spelunking hobby, and you’ll definitely have to pass up on your favorite snack items. Maintaining a balanced diet is the key to a longer, healthier, more meaningful life. If you or your parents are pushing 50, it’s time to incorporate these superfoods into your diet.
If you can’t go a day without munching on something salty, how about tossing away the crackers and opting nuts? Walnuts specifically are chock-full of antioxidants—twice more than pistachios and pecans. An ounce of the mixed nuts daily can reduce the risk of heart attacks by nearly 30 percent. You don’t have to purchase overpriced nuts, and sprinkling them on top of healthy pastas is a great way to incorporate more into your diet.
