April 9, 2019
If we told you we had a recipe that could keep your body in good condition, ward off dementia, and leave your tastebuds satisfied, you'd probably grab your grocery list. Am I right?
Well, grab a pen and start writing.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, eating a healthy diet benefits both your body and your brain - and healthy eating only becomes more important aswe age! Adopting a healthy diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains can help ward off alzheimer’s, dementia and other forms of memory loss, while
helping you gracefully glide into your golden years.
One of the ways Chestnut Ridge best serves its residents is by offering a nutritious and delicious menu. Our culinary chefs and nutritionists ensure that meals are prepared using healthy fats, high-quality protein and a variety of fruits
and vegetables that are beneficial for the body and the brain - such as: apples, blueberries, cranberries, and grapefruit, as well as, flavonoid rich vegetables, suchas: asparagus, brussels sprouts, kidney beans, black beans, cabbage and spinach. Many of the ingredients used in our meal plans are considered “superfoods”; which are especially beneficial for health and well-being.
But it doesn’t stop there. Our chefs go beyond just keeping it healthy, they keep it innovative as well. Eating the same meals week after week doesn’t excite your palate and it’s no way to stay excited about healthy eating. Chestnut Ridge
strives to keep our menu offerings innovative and varied, to ensure you are getting the full rainbow of nutrients to boost your brain power, keep you energized, and excite you about our dietary selections.
As you can see, we’re serious about sustenance! We know that eating well benefits our seniors on many levels. Offering our residents access to nutritious, delectable meals not only boosts cognitive function and helps maintain a healthy body, these factors also promotes happiness and fulfillment, so that they live well for years to come.
