Nutritious and Delicious Meals = Improved Health and Happiness!
Nutrition needs change as we get older. We lose body lean body mass and need more nutrient-dense foods. Our bodies may not be able to digest certain foods as easily. Taste and smell starts to diminish in our 50s so we may find ourselves reaching for the salt shaker or extra-sweet foods more often. The difficulties of preparing meals and the loneliness of eating alone often impact senior nutrition. At a time when we should be getting more nutrients, we may find ourselves turning to snacking, eating high-sodium canned goods, frozen meals or just the occasional carryout meal.
Medications and medical conditions can further affect appetite and digestion. The energy and nutrients we get from food play a vital role in healthy aging. And, of course, good nutrition is even more important when suffering from health issues to help us recover and stay well.
