Turkey and Vegetable Kabob –Our turkey is all-natural, locally sourced and 100% antibiotic, added hormone and steroid free and raised on family farms in cage-free environments. We believe this humane treatment, and respect for our environment comes through in superior flavor. High in protein and low in fat turkey is a filling entrée that satisfies your appetite. Turkey meat is a source of iron, zinc, potassium and phosphorus and it is also a source of vitamin B6 and niacin, which are both essential for the body’s energy production. Regular turkey consumption can help lower cholesterol levels. The meat is low-GI and can help keep insulin levels stable. Turkey contains the amino acid tryptophan, which produces serotonin and plays an important role in strengthening the immune system. It is also a source of selenium, which is essential for thyroid hormone metabolism. It also boosts immunity and acts as an antioxidant.
Pomegranate-fig sauce –Sweet figs with a tang of pomegranate, this delicious sauce will transport you to the sun-soaked shores of the Mediterranean. Pomegranate is both delicious and has anti-inflammatory effects that may protect against cancer and other chronic diseases.
Roasted Garlic Marble Potatoes –A simple all-natural complement to any dish, simply potatoes, olive oil and garlic. Potatoes contain a variety of phytonutrients that have antioxidant activity. Among these important health-promoting compounds are carotenoids, flavonoids, and caffeic acid, as well as unique tuber storage proteins, such as patatin, which exhibit activity against free radicals. Unfortunately, often the oils used to cook the potatoes have negative health consequences, which is why we only use olive oil. The main type of fat found in olive oil is monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs). MUFAs are considered a healthy dietary fat. MUFAs may help lower your risk of heart disease by improving related risk factors. For instance, MUFAs have been found to lower total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels. In addition, some research shows that MUFAs may benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, which can be helpful if you have or are at risk of type 2 diabetes.
Honey Roasted Carrots –Carrots are tossed with olive oil and honey in this simple, all natural, and delicious side dish. Apart from being a natural sweetener, our honey comes from bees that primarily collect nectar from clovers. Clover honey has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Because of honey’s high sugar content, it may seem counterintuitive for diabetics to eat it. However, studies have shown that honey has a beneficial effect on blood sugar levels in diabetics. A 2014 review article published in the “Journal of Diabetes & Metabolic Disorders” reported that several studies have found that honey, when used in conjunction with anti-diabetic drugs, actually improves glycemic control. Suggesting that honey does not affect the body the same way that traditional table sugar does.
