Over 40s mix
As you age, your metabolism slows down, you begin to lose muscle mass, and your hormone levels go a bit wonky, making you more prone to weight gain, mood changes, and health problems you may not have dealt with during your younger years. Fortunately, there are things you can do to increase your fat-burning capabilities, stabilize your energy, and minimize your disease risk.
Nuts and seeds are essential for you once you hit your 40s.

Flaxseeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential fats for a sharp mind and healthy heart. Plus, they’re great for your gut. “As we age, it’s more important to eat the right foods to keep your gut health in check,” says Mirkin. “Flaxseeds are loaded with fiber for long-term digestive health.”
