Retirement can be exhausting and many will skimp their evening meals in favour of something quick and easy, such as a bag of crisps. That's not a healthy option. I've put together a healthy daily menu of evening meal options that are quick and easy to prepare, and nourishing. The options are alternatives - you're not expected to cook and eat them all (but you can, if you wish)

Monday:
1 Grilled Spice-Rubbed Pork Chops with Scallion-Lime Rice.
2 Chicken Fricassee with Spring Vegetables

Tuesday:
1 Thai Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry.
2 Taco Salad with Creamy Cilantro Dressing.
3 Roasted Pepper and Tomato Soup.
4 Pork Chops Stuffed with Pine Nuts, Porcini Mushrooms & Pecorino.
5 Chicken Tikka Masala.

Wednesday:
1 BBQ Meatloaf & Veggie Dinner.
2 Scrambled Egg, Parmesan, and Asparagus Toast.
3 Chicken & Veggie Meal Prep Bowls.
4 Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken.

Thursday:
1 Malaysian beef satay.
2 Malaysian chicken curry laksa.
3 Bucatini all'amatriciana.
4 Easy veal osso bucco.
5 Chicken basil stir-fry.
6 Chorizo, potato and cabbage soup.

Friday:
1 Chicken Parm Pizza.
2 Stuffed Turkey Burgers.
3 Shrimp Scampi.
4 Sausage and Peppers Sheet Pan Dinner.
5 15-Minute Shrimp Tacos with Spicy Chipotle Slaw.
6 Smoked Gouda and Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Cheese.
7 Fish Chips and Mushy Peas served with either Haggis, Black Pudding or Pickled Gherkin.

Saturday:
Eat out on Saturday. Allow someone else to cook and wash up

Sunday:
It's hard to follow a hefty Sunday roast lunch so a couple of sandwiches followed by ice cream will hit the spot.
Wonderful post
Here most senior buy those frozen dinners.
They're not healthy though. Full of salt to help them freeze and then sugar to counteract the taste of the salt. It's always better to batch cook and freeze yourself. Doesn't keep as long but better for you. :D

It's OK if you like a lot of salt and want to gain weight! :lol:
Salt, well, some seniors need a lot of salt if they are UAT.
You also can buy low sodium products here. .

Maybe not such a good idea to freeze yourself but to store the home-made meals in the freezer. :lol:
