The start of every decade brings along promotions and trends of all sorts, many of which affect our food choices. Are you curious about the food trends expected to surface in 2020? Perhaps you have noticed some of them?
Everybody knows that regular physical activity and exercise play an important role in maintaining a healthy body at any age and more so for older adults…
