Welcome to the Best Years Group Recipe Library! Here you’ll find a diverse and delicious selection of healthy recipes for older adults! We recommend you try some new recipes and add some new flavors to your lifestyle; variety is the spice of life! Most of the recipes in the BYG Library are fairly simple to prepare, sometimes in as little as a 30 minutes or less! Try to use the freshest ingredients you can find and remember to eat with the seasons! Should you have any questions, you can always contact us!

How to Use the BYG Recipe Library

To build a menu plan or try new recipes, just click on the colored buttons below. You can customize your search based on your specific element type (Air, Earth or Fire) and meal course (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Sweet Treats, etc.) For example, if you are looking for breakfast ideas for the Air Element, click on the buttons “Air” and “Breakfast” to reveal your options. You will notice that the search criteria buttons that you have chosen will now be orange, and the recipes that appear will be from the categories you selected.

If you want to change your search or remove a selection, click on the button again to deselect it. Continuing from the example above, if you want to see dinner recipes instead of breakfast recipes, click “Breakfast” to deselect it. Then, click the “Main Dish” button for your new results. If you are making a meal for yourself and someone else with a different element type, you can click on both elements and the library will show recipes suitable for both element types.

Scroll to the bottom of the page to see all of the recipes and feel free to browse! Once you have found a recipe that looks good to you, click on the photo and the recipe will appear in a separate window. From there you can follow the recipe from your screen, or print it out by clicking the Print Recipe button located below the recipe photo.

Bon appetit!
