Serving Up Healthy Options

Healthy Options with LVAC

According to a study by the USDA, approximately three-fourths of Americans dine out at least once a week and a quarter of them dine out every two or three days. Changing what and how you order can contribute to your success in reaching your fitness goals. Clean eating is a key component when striving for your fitness goals, and dining out doesn’t have to mean derailing months of hard work. There are healthy and delicious options.

Our LVAC magazine pick for clean eating options is Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza. Don’t be fooled by its name. Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza offers over 15 gluten-free selections and 20 vegan options making it an excellent restaurant choice for a meal with friends and family.

The Oak Roasted Salmon Filet features fresh, wild salmon that is roasted in Sammy’s signature wood oven stove, giving it a mild, smoky flavor. It’s tender and moist and is served over a bed of Asian salad with edamame, cucumber, and ponzu sauce. It’s the perfect balance of tangy and crunchy and is ‘superfood’ healthy.

If you’re looking to add more vegetables into your diet, but you are tired of the traditional fare, try the Oak Roasted Curried Cauliflower topped with Mediterranean spices. This dish has a rich aroma of garlic and pepper and is served with a lemon aioli sauce.

If you’re craving something greener, try the Crisp Brussels Sprouts. The walnuts and balsamic drizzle on this dish add a hint of sweetness and balance out the strong flavor of the sprouts.

Sammy’s is committed to providing locally sourced, organic sustainable items whenever possible. All cuisine is prepared without butter or artificial trans-fat. Sammy’s also caters to various dietary plans, so you can always feel comfortable asking for modifications to the menu, such as sauce on the side, or doubling the portion of protein.

Don’t pass on this neighborhood gem. Especially with their vegan and gluten free options, dining out at Sammy’s can be a valuable addition to your healthy eating plan.
