December – Dietitian’s Healthy Pick of the Month!

Dietitians Health Pick of the Month – Lentils!

As part of our Enhanced Dining Services, our dietitian picks a different food each month to be incorporated into resident meals, and each facility provides a display to educate residents, family and staff.

This month is Lentils – Lentils are legumes, related to beans and peanuts, and to some comparable to dried split peas in appearance, although they are not as sweet. They are high in protein, and can be used to create soups, stews, side dishes, and are even delicious as an addition to salads.
