Of all the concerns that occupy our minds at this time of year, one stands out: Our springtime waistline. Don’t know about you, but we are not much in favor of the all or nothing approach. We are a creatures of habit, and some habits provide anchor points for enjoying life to the fullest. Without these, irritability and even depression may surface. In other words, we favor moderation over self-deprivation. Life’s simple pleasures are what life is all about.
With this in mind, we thought we’d highlight a few selections from our various menus for those times when you wish to exercise some restraint, without giving up on satisfaction. Below, you’ll find three wholesome selections for healthy, springtime meals downstairs and upstairs. For your convenience, clicking on the image will take you to a printable menu.
