Easy Breezy Meals for Seniors | Executive Care of Avon Lake

Nutrition is an important thing for quality of life in our aging loved ones. But not everyone has the time or passion to spend a ton of time cooking. That’s where these easy, delicious and nutritious recipes come in!

Balanced Breakfasts

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The senior in your life shouldn’t skip it for lack of time!

Get the day off to a fast start with some microwave-friendly banana split oatmeal. This recipe makes for a sweet and versatile breakfast or can be used as a healthy dessert!

Looking for something heartier or more savory? An eggy breakfast frittata comes together more quickly than you might think and can serve two—or provide leftovers!

Hearty Lunch Salads

Salads make an excellent choice for a quick and healthy lunch. 
A Chinese chicken cabbage salad is hearty and provides lots of essential nutrients! If your loved one isn’t a fan of Napa cabbage, try substituting his or her favorite lettuce instead.

A classic three bean salad is full of protein and flavor and is perfect for preparing ahead of time for a tasty lunch any time. This salad also makes a great easy side dish for family gatherings!

Looking for a simple side dish to pair with leftovers? Try an easy Greek salad! This dish comes together in just 10 minutes, and can be made into a whole meal by adding some chicken or lamb.

Feeling fruity? Try this low-calorie, vitamin-packed poppy seed fruit salad!

Easy One Pot Dinners

When it comes to making a tasty dinner, nothing is easier than a one-dish meal!

Nothing is more filling than a hearty beef stew. An instant pot will make this dish come together faster and easier than ever, but browning your meat ahead of time and using a slow cooker will still result in a meal with little effort and big taste.

This one pot chicken teriyaki recipe is another tasty dish that will feed a lot of people or yield a lot of leftovers! You can also make this one even quicker using an instant pot or pressure cooker, if you have one.

Vegetarian? A one pot vegetarian chili is sure to spice up your day!
