Eat­ing more fish and beans isn’t just good for your waist­line – it’s ben­e­fi­cial for your re­pro­duc­tive sys­tem too. A study in the Jour­nal of Epi­demi­ol­ogy & Com­mu­nity Health found that women who ate more legumes and seafood en­tered menopause later than those who ate a diet filled with pasta and rice. Given that early menopause is as­so­ci­ated with a higher risk of car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­ease, de­pres­sion and pre­ma­ture death, make sure you in­clude plenty of fish in your hol­i­day braai menu.
