Everything in our life changes as we age and start on the journey of our last chapter in life. We have to pay more attention to what we eat, our exercise, our daily life and even our thoughts.
I have to admit I do not cook pasta very often, except in the summer as it makes an easy and inexpensive dinner. With today’s rising food prices, I think about what we eat. This is actually quite easy as my husband shops the bargains.
Most of us truly enjoy adding lots of spices and herbs to our cooking. It may or may not surprise you that spices not only add flavor to our meals but also offer incredible health benefits.
Soup isn’t just for winter, though a bowl of hot soup on a cold day always sounds comforting and wonderful.
I make hot soups during the summer because my husband loves soup. I have a few soups that are suitable served cold or at room temperature. My soups often have lots of veggies and different beans.
Have you thought about growing your own garden? There are no excuses such as space or soil. If you have even a small patio, you can grow many veggies and herbs in pots.
I have to admit that I rarely make desserts. We get our sugar fix with fruit, but every once in a while I decide it is time to enjoy a real dessert. Most of the desserts I do create include fruit, as it is a healthy and delicious way to get our servings of fruit.
It is so important for all of us to nourish our bodies with healthy choices in food. Being health oriented, I have spent years researching different foods, making sure we get adequate vitamins and minerals in our diet.
It does seem like every so often a new type of diet is created, books are written, new recipes online and a new way to boost sales of different foods emerge.
There are many specific diets you can select from depending on your health issues, choice or desired weight.
