Spicy Harissa Roasted Shrimp –  The main ingredients of the harissa sauce are red peppers, and lemon. A spicy, tangy sauce that brings out the best in the fire roasted shrimp.  Low in calories and high in protein shrimp is a great addition to any diet.  Aside from protein, shrimp provide a pretty impressive array of nutrients. Four ounces contains over 100% of the Daily Value for selenium, over 75% for vitamin B12, over 50% for phosphorous, and over 30% for choline, copper, and iodine.
 
Za'atar Oven Fries - Sumac, Sesame Seeds, Sea Salt - Eastern Mediterranean za’atar is an intensely aromatic and ancient spice blend and condiment. The mixture is traditionally made with dried herbs such as marjoram or thyme (the Arabic word za’atar, pronounced ZAH-tahr, also means “thyme”), we make ours with sumac for a vibrant twist. The sumac brightens everything up with citrus tones, but it's also earthy, it makes our fries pop and it goes extremely well with the nuttiness of sesame seeds. Our fries come out of the oven so are a healthy way to enjoy a favorite comfort food.  When you take away the extra fat and deep frying, potato is an exceptionally healthful low calorie, high fiber food that offers significant protection against cardiovascular disease and cancer and are very good source of vitamin B6 and a good source of potassium, copper, vitamin C, manganese, phosphorus, niacin, dietary fiber, and pantothenic acid. Potatoes also contain a variety of phytonutrients that have antioxidant activity. Among these important health-promoting compounds are carotenoids, flavonoids, and caffeic acid, as well as unique tuber storage proteins, such as patatin, which exhibit activity against free radicals.
 
Braised Cannellini Beans – Swiss chard adds bright color to tender cannellini beans and complements the beans nutty flavor. Braised in our home-made vegetable stock this side dish balances natural deliciousness and healthy goodness.  Cannellini beans lead the pack of low glycemic beans. They help to control blood sugar by metabolizing slowly, and provide steady energy for hours following their consumption. This in turn helps stave off cravings for sugary foods and controls mood swings. Cannellini beans also have a detoxifying effect on the body as they are high in molybdenum which is a trace element by stimulating the action of detoxifying enzymes like sulfite oxidase and aldehyde. Cannellini beans are also a goldmine of antioxidants which provide numerous health benefits such as protecting your skin and the rest of your body from free radicals. The destructive actions of free radicals have been linked to the development of a number of degenerative conditions and diseases. These include cardiovascular diseases, thrombosis, atherosclerosis, immune system problems, Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, certain types of cancer, diabetes, and even dementia. Swiss chard packs a powerful nutritional punch, providing over 700% of your daily needs for vitamin K and over 200% of daily vitamin A needs in just one cup. Swiss chard contains the antioxidants alpha and beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and choline.
