Healthy Eating with Marty Miller, Delray Beach
I frequently have conversations with members regarding healthy eating and diets–eating better without sacrificing taste and flavor. In fact, many times when I get the opportunity to visit our lunch buffet, members look at what I am eating and say, “Where did you get that? It looks good.”
In order to help those of you who have a desire to eat healthier but still want to enjoy Executive Chef Sean Key’s tasty cooking, here are a few tips to eat a very healthy and satisfying lunch, especially while enjoy a Boundless Bowl:
First, look at the options that are available. Always attempt to get the majority of your carbohydrates from vegetables. The zucchini noodles with avocado is always a great base to a bowl. Zucchini is low in calories and provides the feeling of a noodle, and the avocado base provides the essential or “healthy” fats that help you feel full for a longer period of time.Try to eat as many green vegetables as possible. Green vegetables are extremely healthy and provide volume to the meal without adding a high level of calories. Balsamic mushrooms add a different texture and flavor, but try to drain off the excess balsamic to save a few extra calories. I also enjoy the cauliflower rice. Then, top the meal with a lean protein that has little to no sauce. The last time I visited the buffet, the healthiest choices were shrimp and chicken.Topping the salad off with plum tomatoes and Israeli salsa adds additional tastes and textures.
My serving size will depend upon how active I will be in the day and what my other meals have been up to that point or will consist of later in the day.
It is very easy to make healthy choices for meals at Mizner. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to contact me or, of course, Chef Sean.
To yours in health!
