No one wants to skip meals, but meal preparation can become incredibly tedious or completely time-consuming. However, eating enough to keep yourself full has several significant benefits. For older people, a diet that's well balanced for general nutrition can help stay active and recover energy more quickly and aids an otherwise weakening immune system so that illness is less of a fear. One could say a balanced diet helps keep a person younger!
Each day, your nutritional guide should follow the basic nutrition groups: vegetables, grains, and fruits. If you can, try to ensure the grains are whole grain, since whole grains keep much more nutritional value than cracked and processed grains do.
Calcium products, such as cheese and milk, are also helpful. You will also need protein, which is contained in fish and nuts. When you plan meals, plan for variety. Try to keep foods in rotation, so you're not eating the same thing each day. Not only will this help keep you happier, but your body will appreciate the variety of nutrition!
