      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

GP.com just published an article called, "7 Foods You Should Eat If You're Over 50":

http://www.grandparents.com/health-and-wellbeing/diet-and-nutrition/best-anti-aging-foods?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl972&mc_eid=ecb5e393da

No matter how old you are (not asking, LOL), are any of the foods featured in the article on your/your family's regular menu?

Rose, would you mind posting a list of what the 7 foods are because when I click on the arrows to navigate to the next frame they don't respond- I also clicked on see all and got no response- Thanks!

I've noticed that when I have a page open, no matter the site, and an ad fails to load properly some of the clickable features don't respond when clicked on- When I click on the link provided above by both of you, the page loads but the ad to the right of the scroll through images (that reveal the 7 foods) doesn't load- But I've encountered issues with scroll through features on all 3 devices that I use- They can be glitchy- My DH works for a software company and frequently comments on poor design and lack of function even at major sites- End result .. I still don't know the 7 foods!

Oops! That should have read "50," not "59," LOL! Sorry. (I just edited my error). But I'm sure you're not there yet either. :)

Thank you, Sue- :)

 

B12 - Fish, eggs and liver -- liver once a month- Berries more towards the summer months- Usually citrus come winter-

Fiber - Organic beans, at least 5 days a week- Beans absorb fats, so they help to rid the body of it- I would not have believed it unless I tried it myself- I learned about their function from Karen Hurd, you can google her- My numbers have come down since I have been eating more beans-

Totally lacking in the cinnamon department .. and I have reactions to tumeric- I'm sensitive to spices and almost all florals- So I stick with herbs, mostly ..

Never seem to drink enough water come winter ..

Potassium - squash, sweet potato and plenty of yogurt

Calcium - Sardines, half and half lol, cheeses ..

Leafy greens - again depends on the time of year, more lettuce come summer and spinach and broccoli come winter-

Every week I roast a half dozen red peppers and eat them with meals- Always eat tomato, canned and fresh- Love, love, love eggs in purgatory- I finally found a bread I like that has nothing extra added- Tried baking my own, never turns out right ..

I find I pretty much buy and eat the same things .. I mostly eat fresh foods, occasionally prepared- I cook separate meals- DH eats differently ...
