January – Dietitian’s Healthy Pick of the Month!

Dietitians Health Pick of the Month – Oats!

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 Oats – Oats can be used in many different ways to add a healthy boost to your cooking – from snack bars to oatmeal. The health benefits of oats are documented in hundreds of studies, so don’t forget the power of oats to improve your health.

From being higher in protein and healthy fats, and lower in carbohydrates than most other whole grains to helping lower LDL “bad” cholesterol that may help reduce the risk of heart disease.

Eat oats this month!!
