No doubt about it – what you eat WILL affect how you age! So why not make the commitment to eating the anti aging foods that will keep you glowing, promote plump and youthful looking skin, and even fight against free radicals?! Now is the time – starting eating the suggestions in this list of antioxidant-rich foods  – it’s part of my all new Stop The Clock Nutrition Plan! This printable guide has everything about healthy aging foods you need to eat so you can look fit and fab after 40!

Antioxidants are vital to overall health, especially as we age: They may decrease the risk of infection, boost the  immune system and help minimize damage to cells that may accelerate aging. The best sources – surprise! – are fresh, whole foods that are part of a varied diet. Vegetables, fruits and nuts can provide many of the antioxidants your body needs, so add these anti aging foods to your grocery list! Here’s to looking and feeling youthful, energetic and glowing!!

  1. Blackberries. I add these to my yogurt and breakfasts most days of the week. It’s as simple as adding a handful each and every day to reap the benefits!
  2. Walnuts. These are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids – so important as we age. I snack on walnuts and pecans (another good source of antioxidants) for added fiber and protein in my diet. Try them in my Grilled Chicken Salad with Walnuts recipe!
  3. Strawberries. Another yogurt go-to, these are a favorite of mine in smoothies!
  4. Artichokes. These are not only healthy, but elegant as well! Steam them and eat as an appetizer or add to salads. A wonderful source of antioxidants to promote healthy aging.
  5. Kale. This superfood is packed with nutrients, and I add it to everything from salads and stir frys to smoothies!

You can find five more healthy, antioxidant-rich foods to add to your diet in my new Stop The Clock Nutrition Plan! It includes a 7-day meal plan, dozens of recipes, a 4-week eating challenge, and so much insight on how to nourish your body as you get older. It’s all about whole-body health from the inside out!!
