Nutrition: Fueling The Body With High-Quality Nutrients is Key

NutritionWe all know that getting enough sleep, exercise, and socializing are critical elements to aging well, but when it comes to nutrition, some information can be confusing. At Pacifica Senior Living, they understand that a combination of healthy foods that are delicious, comforting, pleasing to the eye, and beneficial for the body is important to their residents and provides the nourishment they need to thrive.

Increasing your intake of fresh or frozen vegetables and fruits is a great way to increase fiber, flavonoids, carotenoids, phytonutrients, and numerous vitamins in your diet. This will feed your cells and can even help to reduce some of the damage that may have taken place over the years. It’s also wise to add in lean, good-quality proteins. These can be plant-based or animal products, or a combination of both. Nourishing your body with high-quality ingredients is essential for overall health.

After years of cooking and cleaning, residents at Pacifica Senior Living love that they can eat restaurant-quality meals each and every day without the hassle of shopping, cooking, and cleaning up. It’s like a vacation from the mundane in a luxurious senior community that is full of friendly staff and other residents who become like family.

The chef-inspired meals at Pacifica Senior Living are bar none for their residents. A few of the favorites include the following:
• Hawaiian-inspired grilled chicken and pineapple
• Country-fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, and steamed vegetables
• Filet mignon with a demi-glaze, caramelized onions and peppers with couscous
• Roasted chicken with roasted potatoes and carrots and a side of broccolini
• Grilled salmon, asparagus, and rice pilaf
• Raspberry and roasted marshmallow-topped lemon curd

Meals can be custom-tailored to your specifications and dietary needs. They can also be delivered to your room if needed.
