What to Eat to Be Healthy
Senior people, just like everyone else, need to eat properly to maintain their health. Eating well can improve mental acuteness, resistance to illness, and energy levels. You have to maintain a healthy diet to have a positive outlook and be emotionally balanced. We, ExPO Signature Home Care, a home health care agency in New Jersey, help our seniors maintain a healthy diet by providing them with Go, Grow, and Glow foods.
Go foods are foods that have plenty of carbohydrates and fats. These food types are the main source of energy for the body. They help people move around and remain energized all day. While fats are often frowned upon, healthy fats can help in making you feel fuller for longer periods of time. Saturated fats may even help you to maintain a healthy weight.
Grow foods are foods that give you protein, calcium, and iron for healthy muscles, bones and teeth. Eating sufficient high-quality protein is important to improve your mood, and even helps you think clearly. Calcium is just as important to maintain healthy bones and prevent osteoporosis or bone fractures.
Glow foods keep the insides nice and clean, and makes sure that your body’s defense, your immune system, is working to protect you from bugs and viruses. Glow foods can also make your skin glow. So take a bite of an apple or a banana, and go for the color rich berries and melons. Eat your vegetables like broccoli, kale, and spinach. Make sure to choose anti-oxidant-rich, dark, leafy greens. These make sure that you reach your required vitamin intake. Vitamins such as Vitamin B and Vitamin D help you absorb the nutrients that your body needs.
At ExPO Signature Home Care, a home health care agency in New Jersey, we make sure that our beloved seniors are always taken care of, and that you are eating healthily in the comfort of your own home.
