In 2021, we focused on nutrition. Our Consultant Dietitian Andre Olynyk released 10 videos as part of our Ask Andrea Video Series, where she answered your questions about senior nutrition. We also took a deeper dive into senior nutrition myths with our free E-Book, 15 Senior Nutrition Myths Debunked. Finally, our very own Chef Tim and Chef Marc worked closely with Andrea to develop 12 new delicious and nutrition meals in 2021.
Because of the wonderful feedback from our customers, we are able to incorporate new and improved recipes into our menu. Some meals, however, stand out among the rest in 2021 as being particularly popular.
Here are the Top 6 Meals of 2021 enjoyed most by you, our customers:
