As (peri)menopause sets in and changes to your body begin, it’s essential to optimize your lifestyle, including sustenance. What worked before in your twenties, thirties, and early forties, may not work now that you’re in the throws of perimenopause or post-menopause. Let’s face it. People change, and tons of changes occur during the menopausal phase.
Your lifestyle should reflect your well-being goals. And if that’s not happening, it’s time for a reset. Basically, you want to assess what you eat to ensure that you’re getting enough of the right amount of nutrients daily to support and maintain the health of your cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, and whole body.
We are creatures of habit, so I know it can be challenging to make changes. The key is to avoid being overwhelmed by easing in. You don’t have to do everything all at once. Ease in the foods that are good for you and ease out the ones that have no nutritional or health benefits for your body.
Food groups you should focus on during menopause include healthy fats, protein, and healthy carbs. Anyway, the purpose of this post is to share. Sharing is caring. So here’s a delicious healthy recipe to add to your menopause menu.
