Quick & Simple Meal Ideas for Seniors
As seniors age, some everyday tasks like cooking, cleaning, and laundry can become a bit more of a challenge. At the same time, remaining in their own homes and maintaining their independence is extremely important. A professional caregiver from Always Best Care can bridge the gaps and enable seniors to be in their own homes for longer. Simple and quick meal ideas can also help seniors who struggle to cook healthy foods. Here are some nutritious and tasty meal ideas that seniors can try:
A perfect breakfast or snack, a smoothie using fresh fruit provides calcium and protein. It only takes a few minutes to throw some yogurt, milk, and fruit into a blender. Seniors can select from a variety of fresh fruits and try different combinations to find what they most enjoy.
Another easy meal option that can be great no matter the time of day is an omelet. Adding cheese and ham can increase the protein power of this meal. If they want, seniors can blend in other vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, and olives.
For seniors who want to decrease their meat consumption or who are in the mood for something different, a vegetarian casserole might be just what they need. There are many different types of vegetarian casseroles that are easy to prepare and highly nutritious such as chickpea and pumpkin or potato, bean, and broccoli.
