Salmon –Salmon is high in omega-3 fatty acids so it is a great choice for flavor and your health – and while it contains fat, it’s healthy fat that is necessary for your lifestyle. “Fish is a good source of protein and, unlike fatty meat products, it’s not high in saturated fat. Fish is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids benefit the heart of healthy people and those at high risk of — or who have — cardiovascular disease. Research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids decrease the risk of arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats), which can lead to sudden death. Omega-3 fatty acids also decrease triglyceride levels, slow growth rate of atherosclerotic plaque, and lower blood pressure (slightly).” American Heart Association
Mediterranean Tapenade –Its name comes from the Provençal word for capers, tapenas. A popular food in the south of France it lends a bright, vibrant flavor in any dish. Capers are pickled flower buds that are an all-natural and delicious way to bring flavor to a meal without adding many calories and are an excellent source of fiber and vitamin K. Olives are very high in vitamin E and other powerful antioxidants. Studies show that they are good for the heart, and may protect against osteoporosis and cancer. Monounsaturated fats, the kind found in olives, seems to encourage weight loss. Olive oil consumption has been shown to breakdown fats inside fat cells, get rid of belly fat and reduce insulin insensitivity. People who have the highest olive consumption eat fewer calories overall and are rarely overweight. Blood tests show they have higher levels of serotonin, a so-called satiety hormone that makes us feel full.
Risotto– Made with Italian Arborio rice and our homemade vegetable stock this dish is filled with flavor and nutrition. Arborio Rice is high in muscle building protein and packed with vitamins and minerals. Arborio rice will give you about 12% of your daily dose of vitamins Vitamin A and C. Its Vitamin C content helps protect your teeth and bones. A full cup of Arborio rice fulfills about 45% of your daily requirement of many essential nutrients.
Moroccan ratatouille– What distinguishes our ratatouille from the traditional French ratatouille is we use Mediterranean dates and apricots and marry them to locally sourced yellow squash and red bell peppers. Yellow squash is high in manganese, a mineral which helps the body process fats, carbohydrates, and glucose. The highest amount of Vitamin C in a bell pepper is concentrated in the red variety. Red bell peppers contain several phytochemicals and carotenoids, particularly beta-carotene, which lavish you with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. The capsaicin in bell peppers has multiple health benefits.
