March may be known for chilly weather, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, and the time we all eagerly wait for spring to arrive, but many people are surprised to find out that it is also National Nutrition Month! If you’re getting ready for the warmer weather, you may want to start with your diet, making sure you’re meeting your nutritional goals. While it may be hard to find healthy foods at your favorite diner in NJ, don’t worry—we’ve picked out a few of our favorite dishes to help you celebrate in a healthy way!
Breakfast can be a tasty, healthy option any time of the day, especially if you focus on the healthy benefits of eggs and veggies! Our favorite healthy breakfast option is our eggs Florentine, with two poached eggs served up with sautéed spinach and feta cheese on an English muffin, smothered in Hollandaise sauce. Sure, the sauce adds a little fat, but small amounts of fat help you to absorb vitamins better and leaves you feeling full longer. Of course, for the most filling, fiber-filled, and healthy breakfast, try our hot breakfast cereal topped with fruit!
For lunch, our salads and wraps are an easy, portable way to enjoy a healthy meal. All our salads start with mixed or salad greens, and add any assortment of veggies, meats, and fruits. Aim for the veggie-loaded ones, like our Tuscan salad with baby spinach, mozzarella, peppers, onions, and olives, or our tossed garden salad with garden veggies and tomato. Try adding a cup of soup for a filling, low-cal side!
Finally, our main dishes have something healthy for everyone as well! Our fresh seafood selection is a perfect way to eat light while still getting plenty of proteins and heart-healthy oils. Try our broiled shrimp, sole filet, or tilapia filet with your choice of potato and rice and daily veggies for a healthy dinner, or enjoy a hearty meal of turkey, cranberry sauce, and fresh veggies.
