Foods for Aging Well – how nutrition can best support a keen mind and ensure vitality as we age

  • Kerby Centre 1133 7 Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T2P 1B2 Canada (map)

Aging is an inevitable part of life, and hopefully something we all get to experience. As our life expectancy has nearly doubled over this last century, this gives us all an opportunity to take charge of our own health and make those choices to ensure our body, mind and spirit are in good working order, now and in our later years. The foods we choose can have a tremendous impact on our vitality, providing our bodies with the nutrients necessary for a keen mind, healthy joints, and a happy heart. Science is now saying while genetics play a big part in how you will age, the choices you make in your day to day life have a much bigger impact on not only the quality of life, but also the quantity.

Join Luka Symons, local C.H.N.C. Holistic Nutrition Practitioner to garner what foods will best support your hard working mind and body. We will touch on how important it is to look after your digestion and gut, going over easy recipes that will best support this crucial bodily function. We will talk about those foods that will best fuel your brain and which foods to avoid in order to retain acuity. 

Key to this all, we will be focusing on those best foods that will keep inflammation at bay.

Luka will demo how to make an easy meat stock, a cost-effective and nutrient dense option that provides your body with essential nutrients to support healthy aging. Come equipped with questions, queries and curiosity, as we delve into how to best fuel our bodies in order to ensure vitality as we age.
