It is American Heart Month and heart health is critical to the longevity and quality of life for seniors. With heart disease ranked as one of the top killers in America (with over 2,200 deaths a day), raising awareness can only go so far. Daily exercise, a diet low in sodium, replacing white flour with wheat, increasing vegetable intake, and decreasing added sugars are among the top recommendations* for improving heart health. And with a list like that, we believe it is clear that what we eat, or don’t eat, can make a distinct difference when it comes to heart health.
With that in mind Mom’s Meals NourishCare created a heart-friendly menu. Designed by our chefs and Registered Dietitians to meet the lower sodium and lower fat guidelines recommended by the American Heart Association. Each meal has less than 800 mg of sodium and less than 30% calories from fat. The menu also provides a broad variety of options for delicious and nutritious meals for all preferences.
Mom’s Meals strives to provide fresh-made, nutritionally balanced and home delivered meals to help meet the specialized dietary menu needs of seniors or those recuperating at home after a hospitalization.
