Seasoned...THE INSPIRED COOKING MAGAZINE FOR OLDER ADULTS

Welcome to our new Seasoned newsletter. Right now, due to COVID-19,  we are all in our own homes, either alone or with our immediate family. That means there is more need than ever to cook for ourselves. It’s also important that we cook healthy meals to help us stay fit and well. Since it’s safer to avoid shopping at this time, the trick will be using what you’re already got at home. We have ideas about how to do that. We’ve also got kitchen tricks to make cooking easier, exercises to keep us well balanced, and even a game to play. 

SEASONED NEWSLETTER - VOLUME 14
We took our inspiration from the old Italian custom of having just a great piece of fruit for dessert, but in each case, we fancied up the fruit—berries, apples, and pears, respectively—to give it a little more pizzazz but still keep it healthy. Of course we always want to provide you with snack ideas, so we’ve also included four ways to create snacks from leftover rice. And we leave you with a balance exercise, a kitchen trick, and a brain teaser. Stay healthy, stay safe, and keep cooking.
