According to the British Nutrition Foundation, 50-plus people tend to have slower metabolisms than in their 20s and may require fewer calories overall to stay in good shape. They also benefit from foods that are rich in certain nutrients which support older people’s health.
Powerhouse ingredients like beans and leafy greens supply much-needed vitamins and minerals and help the body stay metabolically fit, making them terrific everyday staples for the 50+ crowd. That’s not to say that these foods come with an age limit. Whether you’re 4 or 94, these picks provide premium fuel to energize your body.
