Brain Healthy Dining at The Cambridge Homes
Our fine dining experience features menu variety, fresh healthy food sourced locally in season, wait service, and an Executive Chef who prepares meals inspired by the Mediterranean region.
Our award-winning Brain Healthy Cooking Program is based on the healthful Mediterranean diet, which has been scientifically proven to boost overall brain health and cognitive function. The wide variety of “brain healthy foods” we incorporate into delicious recipes includes fresh vegetables and fruits which we pick from our own garden, whole grains, spices, nuts, olive oil, eggs, lean meats, fish and seafood. Our Executive Chef also creates healthful variations of our residents’ favorite traditional and regional recipes by substituting natural sweeteners for refined sugar, replacing saturated and trans fats with healthy fats, and using tasty spices to cut back on salt. We also recently rolled out new menu options through the Plant Forward Plates program, developed by Oldways. Through this program, we offer heart healthy, completely plant-based menu options at most meals using ingredients chock-full of nutritional value. We are thrilled to be the first Assisted Living community to be offering this to our residents.
