Foods to START EATING MORE OF in Your 30s
As you grow older, you may start noticing some changes in your body!
In your 30s, you might spot things that didn’t bother you before and … notice that your metabolism is shifting. All of these changes mean that it’s time to examine your diet and make sure that it is aligned with and supportive of what is happening in your body.
Here are five types of foods that you want to make sure that you are eating in your 30s.
Antioxidants help prevent your cells from being damaged by free radicals and are one of the most useful natural tools for preventing the signs of aging and the development of age-related mental and physical diseases.
Some of the star antioxidant-rich foods include blueberries, acai berries, kidney beans, pecans, spinach, and kale. We would suggest incorporating an array of vegetables and fruits into your diet!
Omega-3 fatty acids
As you get older, the signs of ageing begin to appear in your skin. While no one can prevent ageing, you can slow down the physical signs by nourishing your body with the right foods. Omega-3 fatty acids can help decrease visible signs of ageing and increase skin hydration and smoothness. We would recommend our Omega 3-6-9 Capsules or adding plant-based flaxseed oil to a morning smoothie!
The production of collagen, a type of protein that supports firm skin, begins to decline around your mid-30s. Eating foods that are rich in vitamin C helps our body produce collagen. Strawberries, broccoli, and citrus fruits like oranges and lemons are all wonderful sources of vitamin C. You can also start to incorporate our Vitamin C Capsules into your daily routine!
As you grow older, your risk for developing breast cancer increases, especially if it runs in your family. Start prevention early by eating a diet that is rich in cruciferous vegetables. Vegetables in the brassica family, such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussels sprouts, and kale are all really good options.
These vegetables also contain powerful antioxidants, fiber, and incredible substances that can help your body prevent disease.
Making sure you have ample protein in your diet is extremely important as you grow older. As we age, we tend to lose a lot of our muscle mass. You should make sure you are getting a sufficient amount of Protein to make sure you maintain your muscle mass.
Some people find it difficult to get enough Protein in their diet on a daily basis. Easy ways to get Protein in your diet is through Protein Powders such as our Slender Blend (which is also packed with so many vitamins & minerals), our Whey protein Concentrate which contains over 30g of Protein per serving or our Vegan Blend/Vegan Protein for any of our Plant Based friends out there
A lot of people feel scared about the changes that come with getting older, but ageing is a beautiful thing.Make sure that you stay in tune with your body and nourish it in the way that it needs as you grow through the different seasons of your life!
