Food for the elderly
This New York Times article makes me think that these people have it right. Just because you can get a senior discount does not mean you should stop enjoying what you eat. As we age our bodies need fewer calories but just as much, or more, nutrients. So this means that the elderly should be eating the most nutrient rich foods they can find. In many traditional cultures this meant the organ meat, especialy liver. Post any other nutrient dense foods you can think of in the comments area. Isaac, if you read this what are some of the foods that are traditionaly reserved for the village elders?
