Food preparation and presentation takes a lot of time and creativity. But if you really enjoy cooking, making attractive meals is easy for you to do.
Try to find food stores or markets where you can buy fresh vegetables, fruits and low fat meat or fish for your meals.
Be careful with storing food, especially if you do not have a refrigerator. Eat leftovers from meals on the same day.
Make your meals something to look forward to everyday, and take time to prepare them.
Find new ways of combining food you like with new products you’ve heard. Experiment in your cooking.
Use food with lots of fiber, such as vegetables, fruits, nuts and cereals, to help prevent constipation.
Invite a friend or relative to share a meal with you.
Remember, a good, well-balanced meal does not have to be expensive.
Make sure that you can chew your food well. You may need to consult a dentist for dentures. If you already have false teeth, see your dentist if they do not fit you well.
