Improve Your Diet with Party Foods
'Tis the season for temptation. The good news is that some high-calorie stars of the buffet table burst with the minerals that most women need more of: calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, and zinc. "These nutrients are found in foods such as meat, nuts, and cheese--the first things to go when women cut calories," says Judith Stern, ScD, RD, professor of nutrition and internal medicine at the University of California, Davis. So if you constantly diet, you may be mineral depleted. When you indulge (sensibly, we hope), use our guide to find treats that help you restock those missing minerals. Here's what they do for you:
CalciumKeeps you walking in a winter wonderland, confident of strong bones.
CopperHelps when Jack Frost nips at your nose by promoting healthy circulation from a strong heart and arteries.
IronGives you more energy to deck the halls by keeping your blood rich in oxygen. (If you're still having a period, you lose iron every month.)
MagnesiumHelps you stay merry and bright by building healthy nerves and muscles. May prevent high blood pressure.
ZincLets you say "Let it snow!" by supporting a strong immune system. Zinc's also important for wound healing.
