Weekly Menus for Seniors

Many people require special diets. For example, a low-fat or low-cholesterol diet for heart disease, a low-sodium diet for high blood pressure, or a low-carb or low-calorie diet for weight reduction. Special diets often require extra effort, but many people settle for foods that are quick and easy to prepare, such as frozen dinners and canned foods that may provide too many calories or contain too much fat and sodium.

The Wellness Chef can help. Nutritious, hot meals can be delivered to your home following all your dietary needs and food preferences. Weekly menus can be customized for clients.

For seniors, the benefits of healthy eating include increased mental acuteness, resistance to illness and disease, higher energy levels, a more robust immune system, faster recuperation times, and better management of chronic health problems. Eating well can also be the key to a positive outlook and staying emotionally balanced as we age.
