Creating a healthy, well-balanced diet with foods that are appetizing comes with a whole new set of challenges for aging adults. Favorite meals might not taste the same as they used to, and during a pandemic, you may be taking extra precautions to stay safe and keep the kitchen stocked with nutritious, healthy options.
Meal planning is one way to take the stress out of cooking and provide you with peace of mind.
This Meal Planning Worksheet is a template that can be used by aging adults or family caregivers to plan for a week of healthy meals, make a grocery list, note the ingredients you already have, and start the week off on the right foot.
Making a plan before heading to the store or ordering groceries online can help you feel more organized, save money and time, and choose options that are healthy and promote proper nutrition in this chapter of life.
