A short article in AARP today affirms what we have known for years, that a good diet can help you to avoid serious illnesses such as Parkinson’s, cancer, and Kidney and Lung Diseases. The women who ate the Mediterranean Diet also did better on memory tests and their ability to move around.
The Mediterranean diet consists of vegetables (especially dark leafies like kale and spinach) , fruits (especially berries), raw nuts, whole grains such as brown rice and quinoa, and legumes such as lentils and black beans, with fish and a little poultry. You use Olive Oil instead of butter to cook with. You can read the article here.
If you eat a Mediterranean Diet, exercise regularly, stay social, and train your brain with piano lessons, you will be doing everything you can to live the healthiest and happiest life possible!
