Defy the Aging Process

www.farmfoodieandfitness.comWe all want to live longer, healthier, and prolong the racing clock. What if you could? Just by incorporating these seven age-defying foods into your diet you can fight cancer, insure heart and brain health, while looking younger. Pretty simple huh? All you have to do is change the way you eat!

A calorie-dense diet full of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains will decrease physical and mental decline, increase energy, and assist in fighting Alzheimer’s and other degenerative diseases. Remember to decrease high fatty foods, sugar consumption, and heavily processed foods.

  1. Omega 3’s- Essential fatty acids found in salmon, tuna, nuts, nut butters, and flax
    seed help improve heart, brain, and skin health and decrease inflammation.
  2. Water- Most of us don’t drink enough water. Staying hydrated will help flush and remove toxins, while fighting against skin damage to keep you looking and feeling younger.
  3. Olive Oil- These are the healthy fats you want to include in your diet regularly. They protect cells from damage and most cancers, and they are also high in antioxidants.
  4. Seaweed- Rich in iron, folate calcium, and magnesium. Seaweed has the broadest range of minerals. It promotes a healthy thyroid, assists in cancer and birth defect prevention.
  5. Berries- They lower inflammation and protect against age-related motor and cognitive deterioration, while improving brain cell signaling. This includes strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries.
  6. Healing Herbs- Use herbs to better your health and also spice up your food. Herbs fight free radicals. Include fennel seeds to aid in digestion, turmeric reduces inflammation, rosemary helps with hypertension and cholesterol, and chilies speed up your metabolism.
  7. Tea- Choose green and black varieties for cancer fighting agents. Tea also
    contains more antioxidants that most fruits and vegetables.

  1. I am big on ALL of these food “stuffs” and make quite a practice of telling everyone else they should be, too! LOL! But I haven’t quite been able to manage the seaweed! I can’t even tell you what it is that holds me back. I posted last night about chia seed and I’m always inserting some story or another about my Super Food adventures…maybe I’ll have to do better with seaweed so I can write about my personal experiences! I’ll be at the beach all next week on vacation…I think that may be part of my problem. I’m too familiar with what is on the sand. You’ve sparked a challenge! Debra

    • Hi Debra!

      You’re soo loyal and sweet! Thanks for checking in again! You should try Trader Joe’s roasted seaweed snacks. Beware they are addicting and the closest TJ’s to me is 2.5 hours so I go a little crazy not having it around often 🙂 Do you eat sushi at all? Well I hope your vacation is relaxing, inspiring, and fun! Try not to think about it coming from the clumps that roll up on shore. You can always get Dulse in a bag and add it to your green smoothies in the morning or sprinkle it over salads or chicken, you won’t even be able to taste it. Good Luck! I can’t wait to hear about it! Keep me posted and enjoy your vacation. I hope your “sparked challenge” ignites into something big!
