The majority of Americans want to live to 79 and 100 years old. The desire for long life isn’t new, with many movies and books playing with the idea of living forever. One myth that remains is the existence of the “fountain of youth”.
While there may not be any magical, healing waters that freezes the clock, there are certain foods you can eat that are proven to extend life for at least a decade.
Many plant-based diets offer legumes as a low-fat meat alternative because they provide protein, fiber, vitamins B and E, and minerals, including calcium, potassium, and iron. Most legumes are low fat and high fiber, which reduces cholesterol levels and stabilizes blood sugar levels.
Legumes are known to make you feel fuller for longer too.
Are you looking to enrich your daily diet with more natural nutrient foods, rich in antioxidants, minerals and vitamins? Are you also looking for a healthy natural substitute for nutrient-void table sugar to use in your foods and snacks? Then look no further than dates!
