As I’ve worked with baby boomers and older adults over the years, I find my nutrition guidance boils down to three major points: drink enough water, eat ample protein throughout the day, and increase your fruit and vegetable consumption.
I’m usually successful on the first two counts, but always fall short on that final piece of advice. Most of my clients struggle to eat even two or three full servings of produce daily. And while the official recommendation is five servings, health professionals now recognize we get a far greater health benefit with lots more servings: 9 – 11 fruits and vegetables per day.
As I’ve written before, a plant-based diet decreases the risk of chronic disease and extends life expectancy. It’s just plain good for us!
Regrettably, I don’t even discuss that 9 – 11 number with people, because I know it’s unattainable. Honestly I don’t even reach that goal myself.
But what if I could recommend a way to bridge that gap–a simple, convenient, affordable, non-perishable way to boost plant-based nutrition?
And what if I didn’t share this with my family, friends, and clients? That would be a tragedy.
