Live More deliciously—through Hearth-Healthy Dining.
Here at The Hearth, our culinary team takes pride in using fresh, seasonal ingredients to prepare delicious meals from scratch, every day. We call it Hearth-Healthy Dining—we even have special Meatless Mondays featuring plant-based menu items that will open your eyes and delight your palate.
Here’s what makes our exclusive Hearth-Healthy Dining so appealing:
- Our trained chefs value each resident’s background and tastes. They’re eager to learn family recipes and will make every effort to incorporate them into our daily menus. Residents also share their special recipes at food committee meetings.
- Our Executive Chef is passionate about leading our Resident Garden Club and encourages members to take part in selecting the crops, as well as planting, nurturing and harvesting the produce. These resident-raised vegetables are then served as hors d’oeuvres for social hours or are featured in chef-led cooking classes.
- Our garden herbs are also harvested each morning, when in
season, to be used as flavorings for our signature Hydration Stations. (Fresh mint makes a delicious and refreshing afternoon libation!)
For us, it’s all about the delicious details. We invite you and your loved one to be our guests—and get a taste of Hearth-Healthy fare!
Meatless Monday features plant-based menu items and educates residents on the benefits of eating less meat. In addition, reducing the consumption of farm-raised meat benefits the Earth by conserving precious resources such as water and fossil fuels.
Here are several reasons why we endorse the Meatless Monday movement:
- Studies show red and processed-meat consumption are associated with colon cancer and increase the risk of Type 2 diabetes.
- People on low-meat or vegetarian diets have significantly lower body weights and weight-related health problems.
- The meat industry generates nearly one-fifth of the man-made greenhouse gas emissions that are accelerating climate change.
- Far more water is needed for livestock than for vegetable or grain crops.
Sample Meatless Menu Items
- Apple cinnamon waffles
- Caprese panini
- Black bean burgers with corn salsa
- Yellow zucchini ravioli with pesto cheese filling
- Black bean and vegetable stew with rice, shaved radish, cilantro and lime
- Short-grain brown rice and roasted vegetables with sweet chili garlic sauce
Adequate hydration is a very important aspect of wellness for seniors. Our signature Hearth-Healthy Hydration water features carefully picked fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs (such as apple, cinnamon, cucumber and rosemary) for their health-promoting properties—as well as for enhanced flavor!
Drinking more water combats dehydration, helps fight urinary tract infections and reduces the risk of falls.Close
