Ultimate Anti-Aging Meal Plan
If you’re on the lookout for foods to boost your health, you’ve probably discovered that it’s easy to locate new findings. But good health is in the details, and that’s harder to pin down. How much of a given food must you eat, and how often, to get the benefits? Which recommended foods are truly essential? And how do you pull the research together into meals you’ll enjoy eating over the next two weeks?
So MORE decided to do what hasn’t been done and pull all the pieces together. The result: our two-week, maximize-your-health eating plan. We enlisted registered dietitian Ruth Frechman of Burbank, California, to help us conform to the guidelines of the Mediterranean diet—heavy on olive oil, whole grains, nuts, produce and fish—which has been shown to increase your life span.
For the meals, we turned to Food52.com, a curated foodie site created by former New York Times Magazine food editor Amanda Hesser and writer Merrill Stubbs. Their recipes feature fresh ingredients, lots of whole foods (nothing processed) and generous helpings of herbs and spices. Being healthy has never been so delicious.
