Yesterday we came across an article titled “3 Healthy Eating Habits From The Longest Living People In The World.”
That article contained three common-sense nutrition recommendations based on populations living in the Blue Zones. The Blue Zones
are five areas throughout the world where people live the longest and best lives.
1. Minimize added sugar intake.
2. Choose whole foods over processed foods.
3. Triple your veggie intake.
This advice is so simple and unsexy that it surprised us it was trending amongst more sensationalized health headlines. But it’s spot-on and consistent with our findings and recommendations.
Eating more veggies, fewer highly processed foods, and less sugar is essential for good health. And, it’s
especially important for people with Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. That’s why we’ve written three in-depth articles on these topics, specifically for those with IBD:

Why to Stay Away from Ultra-Processed Foods if You Have Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis
