Healthy Dining restaurant partner The Blue Pacific Grill has introduced its new customizable, heart-healthy stir-fry options in Ohio, marking its next chapter in providing nutritious choices when dining out.
The Blue Pacific Signature Shrimp is just one of the new menu choices recommended by Healthy Dining’s registered dietitians, who worked closely with the Perrysburg restaurant to hand-pick the best menu options that meet Healthy Dining’s nutrition criteria and emphasize lean protein, vegetables, fruits, whole grains and unsaturated fats.
“Maintaining a healthy diet is important, not just for our waistlines but for our overall well-being. Super foods like garlic, ginger, mushrooms and onions are filled with nutritious antioxidants ideal for fighting off those wintry ailments,” said Kathleen Papandrea, RD, a Healthy Dining culinary dietitian. “The Blue Pacific Grill’s flavorful dishes pile on the veggies and lean proteins, making them the perfect vessel for getting these and other healthful foods into your diet.”
Here is a sample of The Blue Pacific Grill’s dietitian-recommended menu options featured on HealthyDiningFinder.com:
Blue Pacific Signature Shrimp Salad – A crisp spring mix topped with fresh, diced mangos, grilled shrimp, red peppers, shredded carrots, edamame beans and sesame dressing. (250 calories, 37 grams carbohydrates, 20 grams protein)Beef & Broccoli Bowl – Beef, citrus garlic herbs, tomatoes, mushrooms, broccoli, white onions and special sauce on brown rice.
