Cafe Menu Highlights

So, it’s a new work week and we have some FINE choices in the cafe for your healthy dining pleasure….

Monday

Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Black Olive Pesto and side of Seasonal Vegetables

*Vegetarian* *Low-Fat* *For Your Well Being*

Did you know that olives are a staple of the Flat Belly Diet? The good-for-you fat found in olives gives you a feeling of fullness and helps raise good cholesterol and lower bad cholesterol.
 

Tuesday

Spiced Tilapia Taco with Quinoa and Black Beans

*In Balance* *Low-Fat*

Fish (except for fried) is always a good choice in a healthy diet! If you haven’t tried quinoa before, now’s your chance! It’s a grain with a great balance of amino acids. It has a slightly nutty flavor. It can be used as a substitute for rice or couscous. Give it a try! (FYI, it’s pronounced “keen-wah” [“wah” sound like “water”].)

Wednesday

Local Granola Pancake topped with Low-Fat Ricotta and Sugar-Free Orange Marmalade

*Low-Fat* *Vegetarian*

Granola pancakes are a super tasty way to slip some heart-healthy grains into your breakfast! 

Gingered Tofu Stir-Fry with Sweet Chili Garlic Sauce and Brown Rice

*In Balance* *Vegan* *Low-Fat*

Tofu’s one of those things I can’t seem to master on my own, but when other people prepare it, it’s quite delicious! Head on over for something a little different!
 

Thursday

Vegetable and Whole Grain Stuffed Mushroom with a small Spice Salad

*In Balance* *Vegetarian*

Mushroom stuffed with deliciously healthy things? Yes, please!
 

Friday

Banana and Candied Walnut Waffles

*Vegetarian* *Low-Fat*

This sounds like dessert for breakfast, but it’s low-fat! Did you know that walnuts are rich in fiber, B vitamins, magnesium, and heart-healthy fats? This can help lower your bad cholesterol as well as lower C-reactive protein, which is an independent marker and predictor of heart disease.
