In her 50s, Rya Kihlstedt becomes more conscious of her eating habits. As much as possible, she prefers having clean, whole foods. As such, she avoids unhealthy meals, fast food, and processed snacks. Naturally, she already observes a clean diet plan, always incorporating fruits and veggies into her meals. Nonetheless, she’s not into strict diets since it’s the exact opposite of healthy living. Instead, she opts more nutritious foods like the ones rich in proteins and healthy fats found in fish and chicken and those high in fiber like whole grains, complex carbs, fruits, and vegetables.
