Day 10 of 12 Days of Bone Loss Holiday Tips
Foods to Choose
When considering bone health, it is best to “bone up” on foods rich in nutrients, antioxidants, omega 3’s and anti-inflammatory properties. That means loading up of fresh vegetables that include a variety of bright colors, dark leafy greens, and cruciferous vegetables. Choose plenty of juicy fruits as well. Make sure you eat as many of these veggies fresh, raw or lightly cooked so you can reap the health benefits.
Don’t forget whole grains, coconut products, fatty fish, and grass-fed, hormone-free meat and eggs.
Choose whole foods over refined and processed foods. Whole foods come straight from nature, without any additives or preservatives, grown free of pesticides and chemicals. Think “apple” instead of applesauce.
Choose foods rich in nutrients over less nutrient-dense foods (think color).
Be sure to include plenty of protein needed to help put calcium back into the bone.
