Meal prep is one of the most time-intensive and tedious tasks for active adults. Any adult can tell you about the lack of creativity involved in meal prep, which can plague even the most dedicated kitchen staff. Turning to frozen or processed foods is not the answer. With Recipes & Rotations, your residents will taste the difference in a “made from scratch” meal prepared with fresh ingredients. Joe Abuso, the chef behind this innovative menu planning program for active adults, is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, has worked in some of the finest restaurants, and founded his own successful, high-end catering company.

At Recipes & Rotations, we refuse to compromise on fresh and nutritious food when menu planning for active adults. Each menu plan, down to every ingredient, is certified by a registered dietician so that our meals meet the many needs in our active adult dining services.

A dining solution for active adults should come with built-in waste reduction. We provide recipes that are easily scaled to the actual number of residents ordering that meal.  Recipes & Rotations provides an ordering tool that will pinpoint the ingredients and their amounts to cut down on waste and costs.
