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.
September is Healthy Aging Month, so there's no better time to embrace nutrients (hello, EPA and DHA omega-3s!) that will help you age gracefully. Help your subjective age—the age that you feel, not that you are—get lower with just a few simple nutritious tweaks to your week. Then enjoy these 30 nutritious and heart-healthy omega-3 recipes!
Here’s how to get your fix of good-for-your-heart EPA and DHA at upcoming Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Hanukkah meals—and beyond! Thanks to the folks at the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED) for sponsoring this blog post. This is my favorite time of year, when the air turns crisp and the holidays are around the corner. While Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday, I really love any excuse to get friends and family together for a meal.
