Eating Well

Good for Every Body

Seniors

A peanut butter sandwich tastes great –and easy to eat. It is also packed, full of proteins to help senior adults retain their muscles, especially as they get older. The peanut is part of the legume family, which means they usually contain lots of B-vitamins that many senior adults are missing but needing in their diet. B-vitamins are especially important for memory and cognition. Peanuts (especially the skin) contain resveratrol, a bioactive nutrient, found to have anti-aging properties and protects cells from being damaged. And the fats found in peanuts are in just the right ratio to help ease joint pains caused by inflammation and the wear-and-tear over the years.
