Holiday Foods for Healthy Aging

If there is one thing that is sure to happen this holiday season, it is that a whole lot of food is going to be consumed. The meals will almost certainly include delicious roast turkey, stuffing, mash potatoes, yuletide ham and let's not get started with the desserts. It is no wonder everybody gains weight when the New Year chimes in.

The bad news is that this much food can be unhealthy.  The good news is that eating well and healthy is very much possible during the holidays. In fact, there are several holiday foods for healthy aging which you can prepare as a good, sometimes better, alternative to the usual Christmas dishes.

Healthy Apple CiderAnti-aging Foods

Appetizers and snacks can be tricky. You may think they are healthy but some can be ridiculously packed with calories. Mixed nuts, for example, can be healthy but a small handful already dishes out 450 calories. In this case, it is best to limit the serving. A good holiday food for healthy aging is fresh garden salad, but instead of using a mayo-based dressing, it will be better to dress the salad with apple cider vinaigrette. Apple cider helps in boosting your immunity, improving your metabolism, and fighting microbes in your skin.

For the main dish, whole-wheat pasta sautéed with fresh vegetables and tuna is a great entrée and certainly a delicious holiday food for healthy aging. Whole wheat has many anti-aging benefits. These include a reduction in colon cancer risk, better control of your weight and lower risk of diabetes. Then, there's the tuna. Tuna is rich in Omega-3, which keeps your skin healthy and may even prevent skin cancer.

Sweet Tooth and Smooth Skin

Healthy Chocolate CheesecakeAs for dessert, a chocolate cheesecake is a good idea so long as you substitute cream cheese, or part of it at least, with a healthier cottage cheese. The cake then becomes a great holiday food for healthy aging when you serve a slice of the cake with fresh strawberries, known to be rich with Vitamin C helping prevent skin dryness and wrinkles. To help you nourish your skin further, we recommend MFIII PE Softgels Advanced Formula, which contains Collagen HM-Elastin with anti-wrinkle and anti-slacking effects.
