Healthy Meals Don’t Have to Take Hours to Prepare! | Executive Care of Toms River

Some seniors love to spend time cooking! For those who don’t—and for their busy caretakers— there are these easy breezy meal ideas.

Balanced Breakfasts

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

Looking for something heartier or more savory? An eggy breakfast frittata comes together more quickly than you might think. As a bonus, it serves up two helpings, so you can share—or make two meals out of it!

Hearty Lunch Salads
