Regularly eating fresh fruits and vegetables can help reduce most ailments that affect seniors nowadays. However, few people have the luxury of growing their vegetables and fruits in the city, and with the simplicities of opening a can, many of us have taken away from growing our veggies.
Today, there's a growing resurgence in local farm produce. Restaurants are honoring these hard-working citizens by serving farm-fresh dishes from their local farms every day; allowing more seniors to eat healthy dishes full of flavor.
Here are top places to visit for fresh, healthy dishes:
