Chianti Braised Short Rib – Slow cooked to a to a fall-off-the-bone tenderness. Moderation and portion control is key when enjoying short ribs.  A great part of a balanced diet short ribs are an excellent source of complete protein and are also a good source of phosphorous and potassium. Phosphorous works alongside calcium to help build strong bones and teeth. It also aids in energy storage and use and assists with kidney function. Potassium is necessary for healthy heart function and smooth muscle use. It is also an electrolyte and helps to conduct electricity in the body.
Lebanese Lentil Rice - our healthy and delicious Lebanese rice - a mixture of red lentils, rice, and orzo prepared in our homemade vegetable stock. Nutrient rich lentils contain the highest amount of protein originating from any plant. They are a great source of dietary fiber and also have a low amount of calories.  Dietary fiber found food such as lentils helps in controlling blood sugar levels. Dietary fiber slows down the rate at which food is absorbed by the blood and as a result, maintains a consistent blood sugar level.
Honey Roasted Carrots - Carrots are tossed with olive oil and honey in this simple, all natural, and delicious side dish. Apart from being a natural sweetener, our honey comes from bees that primarily collect nectar from clovers. Clover honey has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Because of honey's high sugar content, it may seem counterintuitive for diabetics to eat it. However, studies have shown that honey has a beneficial effect on blood sugar levels in diabetics. A 2014 review article published in the "Journal of Diabetes & Metabolic Disorders" reported that several studies have found that honey, when used in conjunction with anti-diabetic drugs, actually improves glycemic control. Suggesting that honey does not affect the body the same way that traditional table sugar does.
