Getting a well-balanced diet to fit into your busy weekly schedule can seem next to impossible sometimes. But for a socially isolated senior, just getting one healthy meal a week may be a stretch due to not having access to good recipes that provide the sufficient vitamins and nutrition they need.

By sharing the specs for a healthy meal, you’re not only bettering their diet, but also their social interaction.

What should a “healthy” meal include? According to most health experts, seniors often fall short on a number of nutritious areas, but meals should definitely include:

  • Dairy for calcium and B and D vitamins
  • Fruits and vegetables for fiber and potassium
  • Fish and other lean meat for healthy fats

What’s your favorite healthy dish? Share it in the comments below.

My favorite go to healthy dish is a super fuel dish that has ground turkey; sweet potatoes and veggies all in one pan. Add some seasonings and your good to go! Has all you need: protein; carb and healthy fat.

Our family favorite dish is it’s almost like a tuna heler but it’s got hamburger in it and macaroni and 2 different frozen vegetables and cream of mushroom soup. It’s really good. I make a double batch and by the time were through with its almost gone.

I love oatmeal with cinnamon, raisins, and brown sugar. I also love steamed cabbage. Sometimes I invite my friends to come over for lunch, just to get them out of the house for a few hours.
