How will I stay healthy and active in retirement?

The library has the following resources to help you maintain vigor and health throughout your retirement years. They contain a wealth of tips to help you achieve your best physical and mental health during retirement.

I would like to dedicate this series of articles on retirement to Harold Ferguson who retired from the Upper Arlington Public Library this month. He has been a welcoming presence at the Circulation Desk for many years. He has earned a fulfilling, healthful and comfortable retirement.

Recipes for Everyone

Living Without Cover ImageAre you looking for recipes that are sensitive to dietary restrictions? The UAPL has many resources for cooking up tasty allergy-free, milk-free, gluten-free, kosher, vegan, or vegetarian meals. In addition to our many cookbooks, check out some seasonal magazines in the Reference Department:

Or, if you prefer, check out a recipe search, like the Epicurious Advanced Search. This will allow you to select a particular dietary consideration, like “vegetarian” or exclude any results that have nuts, shellfish, or more.

Good luck, and have a delicious holiday!
