At Twisted Grove we take a from-scratch approach to food, and at our restaurants you can find a variety of New Year’s resolution-friendly dishes on our menus. Here are a few of our favorites, because eating healthy doesn’t mean reaching for packaged diet snacks and sitting down for meals made up of flavorless iceberg lettuce.
Packed full of antioxidants, fiber and prebiotics, artichokes are nutrient powerhouses. These veggies are also high in protein. In fact, artichokes contain four grams of protein, which is a significant amount for a vegetable. Our California Artichokes are flame grilled and seasoned with cracked black pepper, maldon sea salt and served with a citrus aioli and make a great start to any meal.
Charred Brussels Sprouts
A Twisted Grove favorite, Chef’s Charred Brussels Sprouts are not only delicious, they pack a healthful punch, too. Brussels sprouts are a good source of iron, potassium and protein. These veggies also offer other benefits that can boost overall health, such as Vitamin C, which keeps the immune system strong, and antioxidants that provide anti-inflammatory benefits.
Salmon + Wonder Salad
Beets, curly kale, toasted cashews, red onion, salmon and a lemon-parmesan vinaigrette dressing all come together to make up our nutrient-dense Salmon + Wonder Salad. Components like beets and kale are high in immune-boosting Vitamin C. Kale also helps to aid in digestion, plus it’s low in calories, at just 36 calories per cup. It’s no wonder how this salad got its name.
A vegetarian-friendly option, our Eggplant Stack is piled-high with quick-fried eggplant, sweet pepper relish, dressed arugula and creamy burrata cheese. While generally thought of as a vegetable, the round, purple eggplant is actually a berry, which makes for a fun topic to quiz your friends on over lunch at our place.
A great source of proteins and rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, salmon makes for a great alternative to chicken or beef. Salmon is also high in B vitamins and is a good source of potassium, in fact, a five-ounce serving of salmon contains 10 percent of your daily recommended potassium intake, which is more than a banana. Our Scottish Salmon is served simply grilled with a helping of roasted cauliflower.
