At Jessie and Laurent, we specialize in healthy meal deliveries for people of all ages. We understand that for some, such as seniors, a healthy meal delivery service provides so much more than a fresh, delicious meal.
Good nutrition that comes from eating delicious wholesome food is important at any age, but it becomes even more essential as people get older. Seniors tend to eat less as their metabolism slows and their appetite decreases, which means that every bite needs to count in ensuring they get the right macro- and micronutrients in their diet. At the same time, however, their desire to prepare food for themselves may be declining.
Why Seniors May Not Eat Well
Many factors can make it difficult for seniors to prepare meals for themselves the way they once might have. Perhaps they no longer have the stamina or mobility for grocery shopping, or handling kitchen tools has become harder due to arthritis, tremors, or vision problems. Maybe they just don’t have the same interest in cooking now that they’re only making meals for one or two instead of a large family. It takes care to ensure that someone is getting the right mix of fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, and grains in what they eat, and these obstacles—alone or in combination—can be a serious impediment for older adults.
Some seniors might fall back on convenience foods like canned soup or frozen meals, but these often have too much sodium, fat, and artificial ingredients and not nearly enough healthy nutrients. This puts seniors at risk for malnutrition and health issues like sarcopenia, an age-related loss of muscle mass that can be caused by not consuming enough calories and protein daily. Poor nutrition can also exacerbate existing health conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes. Providing well-balanced meals that are ready to eat can be one of the best ways to prevent avoidable health problems in old age.
Making Good, Delicious Nutrition Easy
Offering meal deliveries for seniors is just one aspect of the service Jessie and Laurent provides, but it’s one that’s close to our hearts. All our meals are made from scratch, using high-quality, locally sourced ingredients like antibiotic free proteins, and seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables for dishes that please the palate. Every week features a changing selection of a la carte entrees, side dishes, soups, salads, and desserts so customers can mix and match to suit their tastes.
For those who need to be mindful of dietary restrictions or requirements, we offer dairy free, wheat free, and vegetarian options, and we always have classic protein choices like Fresh Baked Salmon Filets and Marinated Grilled Chicken Breasts on the menu. With most dishes available in 3 sizes, it’s simple to order the right amount to feed your household for as many meals as you wish.
Customers can order their meals online a week at a time or plan several weeks in advance. Jessie and Laurent meals are then delivered fresh to your home on your regular delivery day, fully cooked and ready to be refrigerated. Reheating instructions are provided on your personalized menu each week, and most of our dishes can be frozen for future meals if you have leftovers.
Seniors get the convenience of always having tasty, healthy meals available, and their family members gain peace of mind from knowing their loved ones are eating right.
Jessie and Laurent delivers to the greater Bay Area, Sacramento to Auburn, and north Lake Tahoe. We don’t charge delivery fees, and there are no contracts or long-term commitments—just fresh, delicious food prepared by hand daily. Our freshly curated ready-to-eat meals can help seniors maintain their independence and quality of life while they enjoy appetizing, nourishing food.
