The Benefits of a Mediterranean Diet for Seniors.

At AVIVA Woodlands, we focus on delicious and nutritious meals that encourage a healthy lifestyle.

One of the best diets for living a healthier, happier life is the Mediterranean diet. Full of natural, nutrient-rich foods, it’s a heart-healthy eating plan that combines elements of Mediterranean-style cooking. There’s evidence that the Mediterranean diet can help maintain a healthy weight, lower blood pressure, boost energy levels, and enhance cognitive function. Here’s some of the basics of how we incorporate this diet into meals at AVIA Woodlands:

  • Serving plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains
  • Using healthy fats from sources that include olive oil, nuts and seeds
  • Adding flavor with herbs and spices instead of salt
  • Preparing delicious fish and poultry
  • Less emphasis on red meat, eggs, and dairy

Hydration is a big area we focus on

We offer water during each meal in the dining room, and have a designated hydration station that we call THE AVIVA OASIS, where we offer infused water, zero sugar flavored vitamin water, and a variety of food options that have a high water content.
