You know what they say – breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gives many health benefits to the elderly such as balanced blood sugar, increased metabolism, and more energy during the day. But, many older adults are tired of the same old, everyday breakfast which includes oatmeal or cereal. They’re looking for foods that will give more joy to their first meal. Below we have listed just a few tasty breakfast ideas for the elderly. Please, feel free to try them.
Greek Yogurt Parfait
Greek yogurt contains a lot of healthy protein and has lower amounts of sugar and calories when compared to regular yogurt. This is what made it popular with people who are looking for healthy but delicious food. Nursing services are recommending Greek yogurt to seniors who want to feel full and energized. IT can be paired with fresh fruit, nuts, and granola to make a tasty parfait.
This meal can be made at night and the eaten in the morning. It is easy to make as the only thing you need to do is to mix milk with a cup of oats in a container with a seal. After that, you add nutmeg, cinnamon, almonds, and walnuts, and shake the ingredients. After that, you leave the container in the fridge and wait until morning.
Whole Grain Waffles or Pancakes
Seniors, just like the rest of us, love pancakes and waffles. But for the sake of their health, they should use whole grain mix for making them. After you finish making them, you can top them with almonds, walnuts, or fresh berries.
Egg, Turkey, and Avocado Toast
For seniors who love avocado, toast made with this fruit is perfect for breakfast. To make avocado toast, older adults need to use some whole wheat bread, and add avocado as well as some salt and pepper. If seniors think that they need more protein, they can always eat some eggs and turkey with their avocado toast.
