Kim Smith is well known in the culinary arts and food service industry for her creativity and signature brain healthy recipes. Recently honored nationally as a “Top 10 Food Service Director,” she has had a successful 20+ year career in the New England senior living industry.
An Advocate for Brain Healthy Eating
As Director of Culinary & Dining Services for Senior Living Residences, Kim spends her time training chefs and developing new recipes for the company’s innovative and award-winning Brain Healthy Cooking Program, based on the proven “brain boosting” benefits of the Mediterranean Diet. Kim has a knack for combining healthful ingredients like kale and quinoa, spices with anti-inflammatory properties, and foods high in omega 3’s into delicious recipes that even Grandma will eat! She is also a master at transforming favorite traditional recipes into healthy meals by replacing sugar with natural sweeteners and “bad” saturated fats with healthy fats, and using spices to cut back on the need for salt.
Kim has made her recipes for assisted living residents accessible for the average family. These are the recipes you will find in our blog. Kim’s motto is simple: “Food that is good for you should also taste good!”
