1-Day Vegetarian Healthy Aging Meal Plan: 2,000

Incorporating more plant-based foods into your diet is a great way to boost your health at all stages of life. A vegetarian diet has been shown to reduce your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and even certain types of cancer, thanks to more fiber and less saturated fat. In this 1-day vegetarian plan for healthy aging, we left out the meat but included lean sources of plant-based protein (like chickpeas and tofu) and added other healthy foods for aging like calcium-rich milk and yogurt, and fiber-filled berries, popcorn and flaxseed.

You'll find healthy gluten-free foods like lean chicken, fiber-filled beans and calcium-rich cheese, which combine to create a tasty day of eating.

1-Day Healthy-Aging Low-Sodium Meal Plan: 1,200 calories

As we get older, our nutrition needs change, as they do at the various stages throughout life. For healthy aging, our bodies need more fiber, protein and calcium to support regular digestion, muscle maintenance, and bone health. On the other hand, our daily limit for salt decreases to help combat things like high-blood pressure, and heart disease. In this 1-day low-sodium meal plan for aging, we made sure to include foods like yogurt, cheese, eggs, and berries, and herbs and spices, to give your body what it needs to stay healthy while limiting excess salt.
