6 Essential Foods for Your Midlife

Wellness starts from within. Galveston Diet founder, Dr. Haver, shares her 6 favorite foods to help reduce stress, increase mental clarity, and help you get a better night’s sleep.

1. Leafy Greens

Packed with vitamins and minerals, low in calories, and the perfect addition to smoothies. Plus, they’re a huge source of Vitamin D and calcium—to promote bone strength and reduce the risk of osteoporosis during menopause. 

2. Salmon

Not only can you just throw it in the oven to have a delicious meal, but salmon is packed with anti-inflammatory properties and protein. The added protein helps protect the loss of muscle mass which can be common during menopause. 

3. Citrus Fruits

Along with being the perfect snack, they help with both hot flashes and night sweats. Score! Plus, they’re packed with antioxidants which helps with weight loss. 

4. Greek Yogurt

It’s packed with vitamin D, calcium, and protein to keep you feeling fuller and more energetic. Also it’s a great source of probiotics to help with bloating. 

5. Nuts

A great way to maintain energy between meals—nuts are calorie-rich and full of healthy fats to lower inflammation and keep you energized through your day.

6. Avocado

They’re packed with healthy fats, fiber, and nutrients to lower cholesterol levels. They’re full of antioxidants and also help you absorb antioxidants in other foods.
