Healthy, Easy Meals for Manhattan Beach Seniors
In addition to its wonderful beaches, Manhattan Beach, CA is known for its culinary delights. However, due to financial and mobility constraints, many seniors need to eat most of their meals at home. Meal prep and cooking can sometimes be difficult for seniors, both physically and mentally. A professional caregiver from Always Best Care can help ensure your senior is getting the nutritional meals they need to remain healthy and enjoy eating. Here are some simple and easy meal ideas for your senior to try at home:
Oats offer energy and fiber to seniors. They are easy on the stomach and easy to prepare in a slow cooker, on the stove top or in a microwave. Seniors can add their favorite berries, either fresh or frozen to increase the nutritional value and enhance the taste of the oats.
Slow Cook Meats and Veggies
Seniors can select from pork, beef, or even chicken to combine with their favorite vegetables to make a delicious lunch or dinner in the slow cooker. These meals are easy and quick and also provide essential nutrients and protein. Slow cooking also makes meats more tender, which can be helpful for seniors.
All that is needed for this fun breakfast or snack is milk, yogurt, and either fresh or frozen fruit. A fruit smoothie can help cool your senior down on a hot California summer day and be a great pick me up after an afternoon nap.
