As we all know healthy eating is important to our overall wellbeing, however, as we age it becomes even more significant. A nutritious diet can help raise energy levels and increase our resistance to illnesses, whilst also reducing our risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and cancer.
We love to eat and nothing is off limits, but we try and include as many fruit and vegetables in our diet as possible, inspired by the idea of eating the rainbow and including as many different coloured foods on our plate as possible. We also try and eat seasonally as this is not only great for our health but for the environment too. We have noticed that we can’t eat what we did or drink as much as we used to. It’s certainly easier to put on weight these days and we can’t handle our drink like we used too, so we are mindful about what we consume and really enjoy our meals.
It doesn’t matter what age you are, it’s never too late to make positive changes to your diet and it doesn’t have to be big changes either. We love trying new recipes and find cooking together a fun way to spend an evening. In this section we will be sharing simple tips and advice that can improve your diet and help you feel better for longer, as well as our favourite recipes.
