    A small amount of meat or other protein and mostly mixed vegetables, lightly cooked. Take advantage of whatever vegetables are in season as they'll be more reasonably priced that others. I'm from U.K.

    When your a senior your stomach talks to you. It says often to me, soup and sandwich only. Because it at this age cant handle heavy meats or spicy stuff. I like an English muffin or scone and, maybe scrambled eggs. Coffee.

    I try to always have some kind of protein (meat or cheese), a vegetable and fruit. We eat a lot of chicken (roasted), a green vegetable such as English peas or green beans, and a piece of fruit. My husband likes bread with his meals. We drink fruit juices a lot. We use Stevia as a sweetener when we have iced tea, and on rare occasions we have ice cream as a dessert at dinner. USA

    I don't eat well balanced meals every day, but when I do it's always something I've cooked myself. I don't trust restaurant food for fresh ingredients.

    To me a well balanced meal would be maybe some homemade soup with beans, ham hocks & bacon & vegetables, fresh backed bread, and fresh fruit for dessert.

    I live in the U.S.A.

      Cooking a roast is a lot of work for a senior, not to mention all the clean up. But the roast sounds tasty.
