With the start of a new year comes the opportunity for a fresh start. Taking better care of yourself through healthy eating and fitness are two common resolutions for the new year. Prioritizing your health in 2020 is a great resolution as it will contribute to an enhanced quality of life physically, mentally and emotionally. At Gabriel’s Restaurant, we’re ready to help.
We realize that adopting a healthier lifestyle isn’t always easy. One common challenge to eating healthy is the impact it has on social events. Many people feel as though they cannot go out and enjoy drinks, treats or a meal with family and friends because these social interactions will hinder their commitment to healthy living.
Not so! We’re here to tell you that with some extra care and consideration, it is possible to enjoy social events while also maintaining a commitment to a healthy lifestyle. At Gabriel’s Restaurant we offer many healthy menu items to ensure that you can stick to your goals while enjoying the luxury of having someone else cook for you; all while spending time with your friends and loved ones. Here’s how:
Choose Your Greens
We offer a vibrant menu full of healthy options. With eight salads to choose from, there’s something to satisfy everyone’s tastes!
The mixed green salad features a medley of baby greens and wedged tomato with a home-made balsamic dressing. This salad is both fresh to taste and sits light in your stomach!
A house feature, the Gabriel salad is a blend of field greens and spinach leaves with pine nuts and Quebec blue cheese tossed in our home-made pesto balsamic dressing. For added flavour, this salad is served on a bed of sliced tomato and Bermuda onion.
Goat Cheese Raspberry Pecan Salad
Looking for something sweet? The goat cheese raspberry pecan salad is a combination of spinach leaves, baby greens, pecans and berries tossed in our home-made raspberry dressing and topped with crumbled goat cheese.
If you love cheese, you will love the Caprese salad. Fresh sliced tomato combined with bocconcini cheese, herbs, extra virgin olive oil and tender greens tossed in a 15-year aged balsamic vinegar are sure to have your mouth watering.
