Cooking for Health
Sometimes the elderly can be set in their ways, and getting them to workout and eat healthy may seem like a hassle. As much of a hassle as it may seem, nothing is too much trouble when it comes to prolonging the life of a loved one. Here's some tips on how to encourage someone advanced in years to lose weight.
6 fresh eggs
1 cup granulated sugar, divided use
2 cups heavy cream
2 cups milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
Freshly grated nutmeg for sprinkling
Healthy eating is at the core of a well-balanced lifestyle, and the importance of eating well doesn’t become less important with advanced age; rather, it can become more central to one’s health.
And while healthy eating is an admirable goal, it is not always easy, especially when budget and food preparation abilities are taken into account.
This is a recipe I found and modified. I like my barbeque burger to be a little special, but I do NOT like them to taste like grilled meatloaf. I like it to be a BURGER.
Also, if I am going to grill, I feel like I might as well make a good quantity for the trouble. So I adjusted this to make 8 burgers & if there are extras, package them and freeze them for later delicious reheating.
This recipe got rave reviews.
1/4 c cooking oil
3/4 c milk
1-1/2 c flour
1/2 c sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c blueberries
Beat egg, oil and milk together lightly. Sift dry ingredients together/ blend lightly. Do not beat. Fold in blueberries. Bake for 25 minutes at 375. May be made in greased muffin pans or paper lined pans. Fill 2/3 c full. Makes 24 small muffins or 12 larges ones.
1-1/2 lbs cubed beef stew meat
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 small can sliced mushrooms
1 packet (1 ounce) dry onion soup mix
dash of garlic powder
dash of onion powder
dash of black pepper
Mix all this up in the crock pot and cook on low 8-10 hours or on high for 4-6 (in my experience, the slow method comes out better in crock pot recipes)
Serve this over egg noodles or rice.
