Frequently as we age our appetite and subsequently how we eat and what we consume change with it.  In many cases, though it’s not for the better, the tendency to comfort eat or enjoy a few treats doesn’t always decrease with age or insight.

It’s not our place to advise on what’s right for you, every one of us has different nutritional requirements and it’s always best to consult with an expert when it comes to your health.

We have however pulled together a list of resources that we think are worth a read, knowledge is power in every aspect of our lives.
