Mower County Senior Center: Eat well and feel better

Remember the old adage, you are what you eat? Make it your motto.

When you choose a variety of colorful fruits and veggies, whole grains, and lean proteins you'll feel vibrant and healthy, inside and out.

• Live longer and stronger: Good nutrition keeps muscles, bones, organs and other body parts strong for the long haul. Eating vitamin-rich food boosts immunity and fights illness-causing toxins. A proper diet reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type-2 diabetes, bone loss, cancer, and anemia. Also, eating sensibly means consuming fewer calories and more nutrient-dense foods, keeping weight in check.

• Sharpen the mind: Key nutrients are essential for the brain to do its job. People who eat a selection of brightly colored fruit, leafy veggies, and fish and nuts packed with omega-3 fatty acids can improve focus and decrease their risk of Alzheimer's disease.

• Feel better: Wholesome meals give you more energy and help you look better, resulting in a self-esteem boost. It's all connected — when your body feels good you feel happier inside and out.
