For 40-somethings: Befriend fiber, calcium, and potassium
What are the top nutrients for women in their 40s? Fiber, calcium (and its absorption-encouraging pal, vitamin D), and potassium are crucial, primarily for their ability to help you cope with a slowing metabolism, blood pressure and cholesterol disease factors, and bone health. High-fiber cereal, low-fat cheese, nut butters, low-fat yogurt, dark leafy greens, bananas, and other fresh fruits and vegetables are just a few ways to get these vital nutrients. Today, challenge yourself to eat more of what works for your 40-something body, and feel great while doing it!
