March 26, 2014 - PRLog -- March is National Nutrition Month, an observance that is widely overlooked, yet universally important to every member of our society. As people age, nutrition becomes more important to overall health, especially in regards to the elderly population. Proper diet and nutrition helps elderly individuals keep their minds sharp and alert, while also increasing energy. However, the elderly have different needs than the rest of the population, which is why Brooklyn Queens Nursing Home of Brooklyn, New York, would like to share helpful tips about maintaining a healthy diet after the age of 50.

Use less salt! Reduce your sodium intake to reduce water retention and high blood pressure

Eat good fats! Avocados, olive oil, walnuts, and salmon are allexamples of “good fats” that can protect you from bad cholesterol

and raise your good cholesterol.

Go fiber! Fiber is a crucial part of a nutritional diet, as it reduces

constipation, lowers your risk of chronic disease, and helps you feel

more full when eating.

Eat more veggies! The best way to prepare vegetables is by steaming

or sautéing them in olive oil. Olive oil preserves nutrients and is a

great example of the good fats doctors recommend.

Diversify your plate! A helpful tip from Japanese food culture is to

include five colors on your plate. Fruits and veggies rich in color

correspond to rich nutrients (blackberries, melons, yams, spinach,

tomatoes, zucchini).
