October: Eat Better, Eat Together

October: Eat Better, Eat Together

Did you know that October is National Eat Better, Eat Together month which encourages individuals to spend more time with one another around a table filled with delicious and nourishing food. Eating together is also a great way to stay connected to one another. Take a look at our list below of tips on how to eat better and together throughout the month:

Make a colorful plate: One way to eat healthier meals is by adding a dash of color to every meal. Vegetables, grains, and even some fruits making an appearance in your dinner is a great way to make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need. Menu items at Robson Reserve are thoughtfully planned and incorporate many superfoods rich in color such as sweet potatoes, cranberries, beets and more.

Fresh is better: Eating raw fruits and veggies can help keep nutrients and enzymes intact, which means a boost to your immune system. Healthy, seasonal, and regional food is a mainstream at Robson Reserve. Our earth to table approach to dining means our food is not only delicious but we never prepare food with trans-fat, MSG or peanut oil.

Teaching kitchen

Take it slow: Fall is a great time to take out the slow cooker and enjoy nutritious meals that are easy to make. There’s nothing better than the smell of homemade soup, chili, or stews, simmering. Why not invite your friends and neighbors over to share your savory dish?

Whether you are dining in the community restaurant or dining in your Independent or Assisted  living apartment, enjoying a meal with family or friends not only improves your mental and emotional wellbeing, it also helps to reconnect and build relationships.
