A New Year…New Hope and New Diets!!
Well, my guess is that many of you have taken down your holiday trimmings and thrown away (or eaten) all that candy that was in your stockings. We joined a fitness club (another near-yearly event) and have every intention of using it liberally, although experience tells me that it may just be something I like to think about from a prone position (and I don’t mean reclining on a weight bench, either).
It’s New Year’s Resolution time, and we have a couple of dishes that you may be interested in trying – our Tortilla Soup has less than 350 calories and 5.5 grams of fat. If you opt out of the cheese & tortillas, it’s only 96 calories and .5 grams of fat (but who would choose to leave the best part out of the soup?). Or get fresh housemade Pasta with our own Marinara Sauce – only 350 calories. For dessert this week, our Yogurt, Fruit, and Granola Parfait is low cal and low fat. Ahh, the luxury of being virtuous without giving up fabulous flavor!
And for luck, order Hoppin’ John – it’s fresh black eyed peas in a sausage stew. I want to be sure my luck’s all good, so I’m chowing down.
Try one of our coffee drinks while it’s chilly – deliciously named: Gran Godiva, The Dream Cream, Café Almond, and Irish Coffee. We can even make them with decaf coffee so you can sleep when you get home.
Still serving soups, stews, and other toasty fare to keep your tummy warm during these short days (hurry up, spring!).
