Caregivers Carlsbad Meal Ideas

Caregivers near Carlsbad Cook Culinary Creations

A senior who is confined to home most of the time because of frailty or illness faces the very real, and very serious, problem of monotony. When every day is the same and little goes on in the house, the body has a hard time keeping itself healthy and resistant to disease. Favorite TV shows and mealtimes become the highlights of most days, and that can make matters worse if seniors fall into the trap of making heavy, sweet foods a source of comfort. Caregivers near Carlsbad would like to suggest a different, more exciting response!

Try Something New

The popularity of television cooking shows has introduced many of us to vegetables, fruits, and herbs that we had never heard of before. But what do those ingredients really taste like? With the help of caregivers in San Diego County, your senior can find out, going on an international adventure without leaving the dining room table. Take your loved one on a trip to the local specialty/international food store or farmer’s market, and pick up something neither of you have ever tasted before.

Give Your Meals a Theme

If mealtimes are the high points of your senior loved one’s day, make the most of them every once in a while. Plan a day in which all the food is themed—Mexican, Chinese, vegan, green, non-dairy, locally produced…there is an endless list of possibilities. Researching what other cultures eat for breakfast and snacks is very enlightening! Afterward, your senior may enjoy sharing photos and recipes with the rest of the family.
