Happy Healthy Aging Month! Before you get all bummed out about aging, let me tell you this is your chance to change how you age. The older I get, the happier I feel. I know what foods my body needs for fuel and how to keep it active with exercise. I show it plenty of self care and compassion, too. So is it so strange that my subjective age, the age that I feel, is lower than the age I actually am? Nope. I truly believe that treating your body with kindness and respect helps you age gracefully.

I've been to Florence twice, in 2011 and 2015. This northern Italy locale is by far one of my favorite European cities.

Worry you won't feel satisfied without chicken, beef, or seafood on your plate? Even though plant-based foods are often packed with health benefits, many people still feel hesitant about going meatless. With a little planning, though, you can create simple, vegetarian meals that are every bit as filling and delicious as meat-centered ones. I'm speaking from experience, as I've been a vegetarian for more than half my life! I like to include protein-rich ingredients like beans and Greek yogurt.
