You know what they say, “You are what you eat.” With the nutritious foods freshly prepared at Kendal on Hudson, what you are is healthy.
Let’s face it. When you’re cooking for yourself, it can be hard to stay on a healthy diet. All that shopping, planning, preparing, cooking and cleaning up. Sometimes it’s easier to grab a quick bite at a fast food place than to prepare whole meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But poor diets can lead to heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and other health concerns. Especially in older adults.
At Kendal on Hudson, eating healthy is not only easy; it’s delicious. Our chefs take great pride in preparing well-balanced dishes with the freshest ingredients available. With a variety of dining venues and mouth watering menu selections, meals are ready when you are. Have a special dietary requirement? No problem. Dairy-free. Gluten-free. Vegan. Any request can be met.
Best of all, we’ll do the dishes, too.
