One of the most important factors in maintaining bone health and preventing osteoporosis is what we eat. Fortifying our diets with nutrients like calcium, fibre, and Omega-3 fatty acids can go a long way to ensure our bones stay strong as we age while reducing the risk of fractures.
On the Osteoporosis and Bone Health episode of theZoomer, nutritionist Nadine Khoury of Nad Nutrition teaches our audience how to incorporate nutrient-rich foods into our diet with her quick, easy and delicious Overnight Oats recipe.
