June is national fruits and veggies month, which means some people are focusing on these tasty dietary elements. But did you know that most people do not get the recommended five or more servings of fruits and veggies each day? Natural foods like these are filled with nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and more—and are often low in calories—making them true superfoods. Many people who visit our diner in Lincoln Park don’t realize it, but you can even find healthier foods at restaurants and diners—that is, if you want to look around at the menu a little bit. Check out our favorite fruit and veggie dishes from GLP!
Fruit is naturally sweet and light, making it a perfect breakfast choice! Next time you’re looking for the best breakfast place in Lincoln Park, stop by George’s for pancakes topped with fresh strawberries, bananas, or blueberries, or enjoy a freshly-prepared fruit cup.
Veggies are delicious, especially when paired with our other great offerings. To squeeze in a serving of veggies before lunch, try filling one of our customizable omelets with onions, peppers, and mushrooms! Many of our daily soups are chock-full of veggies, so make sure to check with your server.
Don’t just “add” veggies to your meal—build the meal around these nutritional wonders! The classic veggie-led meal is a salad, and the Lincoln Park Diner has plenty of these! Enjoy fresh veggies with a variety of protein and dressing options. For something hot and comforting, try our eggplant parmesan, combining the rich, flavorful sauce with a healthy eggplant.
If you want the best health, fruits and veggies must be a part of it! Always check with your doctor before making major changes to your diet, but eating more of the fresh stuff is usually a good choice! Next time you visit your favorite restaurant in New Jersey, challenge yourself to a healthier meal!
