I’ve heard about The Blue Zone’s for a while, and I love reading about all the findings. It’s very interesting!
One place to look for inspiration is the so-called Blue Zones, Bhatia says, which includes Italy, Greece and Japan. These are areas “where people can live to 100 or above and are vital and thriving,” Bhatia says. A common denominator in these areas? People focus on eating diets rich in plant-based whole foods.
“Trying to get the right mix of nutrients in your daily diet can feel overwhelming, but no matter what age you are, nutrients do make a difference,” Dr. Taz Bhatia, an integrative medicine physician and certified nutrition specialist, tells Yahoo Life. Eat the right balance of foods, Bhatia says, and you’ll help yourself create a happier and healthier lifestyle.
