Healthy meals are an important aspect of life, especially for seniors. Eating a well-balanced meal can affect your overall health potentially reducing your risk of heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Pioneer Resources has partnered with a Nutrition Specialist to create 6 weeks of seasonal menus, shopping lists, and recipes designed to utilize healthy, fresh, in-season ingredients. The menus were created for 2 or 6 people with approximately 1500 calories per day. Please consult your healthcare provider for your recommended daily caloric intake.
