Nutrition suggestions needed-changing my eating habits

I am post-menopausal and had not been paying much attention to my nutrition for awhile. I noticed I was increasingly tired, and my thinking felt foggy, hard to concentrate. A friend suggested I give up Aspertame to see if it helped, and it has. I'm drinking more water, and have added some foods she suggested like whole grain breads, blueberries, salmon, olive oil, almonds. I also try to have a couple of nights each week when we eat vegetarian. I really am looking for nutritional advice on other foods that I should include in my new way of eating. My husband is following my lead on this, so I want to change us both to healthier habits. I welcome your suggestions.
