I have a large stack of nutritional tidbits that I need to post, so I am starting with one from the AARP Bulletin with a special section entitled: 99 Ways to Add Healthy Years to Your Life, only I am only listing those that are related to diet, since Menupause was first envisioned as only recipes but morphed into  much more. But I still like to keep tabs on health issues.

Under the section sub-titled Eat the Good Stuff, there are some helpful ideas that are explained in the text. These are just the highlight titles with a few explanations, numbered as they are in the article:

44. Feed Your Muscles (fiber, good fats, etc.)

45. Build Unbreakable Bones (with good foods)

46. Eat fiber, cheat death

47. Eat Fruits & Vegetables….
