It seems as though the older you get, the more you need to take into consideration when it comes to managing your health; between the vitamins, medication and amount of exercise you’re getting in each day, it can be easy to forget parts and overall overwhelming. While every bit of your health is extremely important, there are plenty of ways to make getting in routine as easy as can be. For instance, there are plenty of medicine cases that allow for you to separate your daily doses and have them prepared for the entire week. We figure, if this works with medication, why can’t it work for your meals?

One of the most difficult parts of nutrition, nation wide, is eating right. This not only includes eating the right amount of calories, but a balanced meal of protein, vegetables, fats and dairy. The best way to achieve a healthy diet is by breaking down your meals into a weekly schedule and then planning accordingly. Whether you decide to only prepare one meal a day, or all of them, doing so has shown to increase the consistency to which senior citizens are getting the nutrients and portions that they need to stay healthy.
