Proper nutrition is important at any age. The nutrients in food keep our organs functioning, give us energy, boost immunity and help prevent or reverse diseases like hypertension and diabetes.
Older adults, however, tend to face myriad obstacles that can get in the way of putting healthy meals on the table: a lack of transportation to the grocery store, medications that dull their sense of taste, chronic illnesses that make it difficult to chew, swallow or navigate a kitchen, and dietary restrictions that make meal planning challenging. Then again, cooking in general may not appeal to them after a lifetime of toiling in the kitchen. Unfortunately, all these roadblocks can lead to poor nutrition, which can jeopardize physical and mental health, and worsen chronic medical conditions.
Reintroduce the older adult in your life to the joys of eating well-balanced, delicious meals without the prep work or cleanup. This Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, give the gift of chef-prepared and dietitian-designed homemade meals by MagicKitchen.com to the parent who has everything they need—everything except the desire or wherewithal to cook for themselves.
A variety of meal options
All of MagicKitchen.com’s meals are prepared using the finest ingredients, hormone-free chicken and beef, and fresh produce. To preserve that right-out-of-the-oven taste, meals are flash frozen and arrive at your loved one’s doorstep in one to two days from the time you place an order. MagicKitchen.com delivers homemade meals to older adults nationwide via UPS, and orders arrive in a cooler packed with dry ice, ready to reheat in the microwave or conventional oven and serve.
You can choose from two menus: complete meals with a main course and one or two side dishes packed together, or à la carte dishes that allow you to mix and match main courses, sides, soups and desserts. Whether you just want to stock the freezer with comforting homemade soups and crusty bread or complete meals like beef stroganoff with noodles and buttered carrots, chicken stuffed with artichokes, spinach and rice with a side of mixed vegetables, or chicken pot pie in a golden crust, the choice is yours.
Each meal comes with a breakdown of nutrition information, heating instructions and a complete menu for reordering. Single-serving options come in batches of two and are perfectly portioned for older adults who live alone. Complete meals and items on the à la carte menu range in price from $10 to $14 per serving. There are no contracts to sign or obligations to uphold. You can order once or as many times as you like, or set up automatic delivery.
