You can work out all you want, but if you don’t feed your body the right kind of fuel you’ll never live a long and healthy life. If your plan is to live at least 100 years, make these foods a regular part of your diet, according to Health magazine.
Fruits and vegetables are crucial. Different colored foods contain different micro-nutrients, so eat a rainbow every day.
Fiber is important for digestive and heart health. Throw away the white bread and learn to enjoy whole grains such as whole wheat, popcorn and even oats.
Eat a handful of healthy nuts such as pistachios and walnuts for a healthy treat for your heart.
Eat fish 2 to 3 times a week, and make one dish an oily fish such as salmon to get those great Omega-3 acids that are so good for your heart and immune system.

No matter how well you treat yourself, accidents happen. For professional medical care in Pomona, contact the caring staff at Rite Medical Clinic in person or online.
