I need a healthy eating plan for a 56 year old woman.

No single best plan: There is no single best diet for everyone.
I advise eating mostly vegetables, moderate fruit (esp. Less sweet like berries and apples) and quality protein like organic eggs and naturally raised meats. Avoid GMO's and fried foods. Whole grains OK in moderation but best to minimize gluten.
