Eating calcium-rich foods can prevent older loved ones from developing weak bones and osteoporosis. If you want an extra source of calcium, decorate the broccoli dish with sliced ​​almonds and Parmesan.

To increase the fiber content of your Thanksgiving dish, you can replace traditional rolls with fiber-rich alternatives, such as whole-grain rolls.

Fruit Desserts

Baked apples and fruit pies are the best choices because they have a rich taste without much sugar.
