Each Month Different Restaurants and Eateries will be featured highlighting some healthy choices off their menu’s!!

Salads

  • Any salad can be topped with one of their cold salads or any cooked fish. I would recommend staying away from the cold salads that may contain mayo and stick with the cooked fish as a topping.
  • Salad Choices are: Garden Salad, Caesar Salad , Mesculin Salad, Spinach Salad.
  • A salad is typically a good choice, but be aware that dressings and toppings like cheese and croutons can add fat and calories.

Entree’s

  • Any entree can be grilled, baked, broiled or steamed served with 2 side dishes. You may want to ask for just a dash of Olive Oil in the prep. Add some extra squeezed lemon to make it juicier and more flavorful.
  • Flounder, Sole, Tilapia, Halibut, Salmon, Tuna – Ahi, Sea Bass, Swordfish, Catfish,Scrod, Sea Scallop, Bay Scallop, Jumbo Shrimp, Catch of the Day.

Steamed Mixed Veggies

  • Excellent Choices!!! Steamed Broccoli, Steamed Asparagus Steamed String Beans

Side Dishes

  • Try mustard on the baked potato instead of butter or sour cream. Its delish!!
  • Baked Potato
  • Steamed Corn on the Cob

On the 1/2 Shell

  • Served with lemon and cocktail sauce
  • Littleneck Clams
  • Topneck Clams
  • Cherry Stone Clams Oysters

If you choose bread or rice: Choose items made with whole grains. Examples include whole-wheat bread, tortillas and pasta, as well as dishes made with brown rice.
