Elder Care in Las Vegas, NV: Healthy Breakfasts

Seniors across the country are not getting enough to eat. Often seniors don’t want to cook meals for themselves or they have a hard time cooking meals for themselves. Elder care is a great way to make sure that your senior loved one is eating a proper lunch and dinner, but often seniors are on their own for breakfast. If your senior parent has elder care but the provider doesn’t come until later in the day and your senior gets their own breakfast these easy to make healthy breakfasts are the perfect way for seniors to start the day:

Smoothies

Smoothies are always a hit with seniors, especially with seniors who don’t like to eat a full meal in the morning. An elder care provider can leave a container in the fridge with veggies, cut up fruit, yogurt, and juice all mixed together. Then all your senior loved one needs to do is dump the container into a blender and mix. A great -tasting, healthy, delicious breakfast they can drink is just the push of a button away. Smoothies are fantastic because they can be made with so many different ingredients to get vitamins and minerals and taste great. 

Cottage Cheese With A Twist

Cottage cheese has more protein in it than some meats and it’s a lot easier for seniors to eat than meats. By itself cottage cheese can taste a little bland but there is a trick to making it taste like dessert. You or your parent’s home care provider can mix cottage cheese, a tub of whipped topping, and a packet of fruit flavored instant sugar-free gelatin in a big bowl. It tastes sweet and creamy and delicious that way. Then add in sliced bananas, raspberries, sliced strawberries, kiwi, or whatever fruit your senior loved one likes. It’s a cold, sweet, creamy, healthy breakfast, dessert, or snack that is fantastic during the hot summer months. 

Peeled Hard Boiled Eggs 

Hard boiled eggs are one of the best protein sources for seniors but it can be difficult for seniors to peel hard boiled eggs, especially if they have trouble gripping things. This is an easy problem to solve. You or a home care provider can make hard boiled eggs in an air fryer or in a hard boiled egg maker so that the shells are very easy to peel. When the eggs have cooled completely, peel them and put them in the refrigerator. Then your senior loved one can enjoy hard boiled eggs for breakfast or as a snack when they are hungry during the day. If your senior parent prefers to graze the day instead of having three set meals there should always be peeled hard-boiled eggs in their fridge so they can have a protein snack whenever they are hungry. 

Overnight Oats

If your senior parent prefers a hot traditional breakfast and they have elder care, an elder care provider can set up a slow cooker when they leave for the night that has milk, steel cut oats, cinnamon, and sugar in it. Set on low it will cook all night. When your senior loved one gets up in the morning they will have hot delicious oatmeal that they can add fruit, maple syrup, or other toppings to.
