Healthy Eating in Houston
January 1, 2018
With a New Year comes new resolutions! Stay light and fit with favorite Houston restaurant Monument Inn, with our menu of fresh favorites that will keep you on track and feeling good. For years, Monument Inn has been serving up top-rated seafood in a relaxing, scenic environment.
Fresh Seafood Salad
Monument Inn is famous for our delicious salads, made with fresh ingredients and topped with dressings that complement everything perfectly. Try our shrimp salad, made with shrimp marinated in Italian dressing with green and black olives, served over mixed greens, tomatoes, eggs and cucumbers, or the classic Caesar salad, and top it with lump crab or grilled shrimp or chicken, for a filling, fresh twist.
The Monumental Chicken Salad is another favorite, a delightful combination of mixed greens, feta cheese, olives and banana peppers, and house vinaigrette dressing, all topped with your choice of grilled, blackened, or fried chicken. A hearty, healthy salad will keep you feeling full and focused in the chillier winter weather.
Seafood Contains Omega 3
Omega 3 is a fatty acid that is essential to normal growth and health. Because this essential fatty acid is not produced by the body, it is important to obtain the nutrient through food. Seafoods such as tuna, fish and halibut are high in omega 3 and can give your body the nutrients it needs. Research shows that omega 3 aids in the prevention of cancer, heart disease and other disorders.
Less Calories and Fat in Seafood
Fish definitely has an advantage over ground beef in the health department. Seafood is the perfect diet food that is full of protein and flavor. Almost all seafoods obtain less that 30 percent of their content from fat.
Seafood is the source of Nutrients and Vitamins
In addition to Omega 3, seafood packs a punch of many other vitamins. Iron, potassium, biotin and Vitamin A can all be founds in a variety of fish.
Grilled, Broiled or Baked
There aren't many lunch or dinner choices that are tastier, or better for you, than a grilled, broiled, or baked fish entrée. No matter how you choose to have your fresh Houston seafood prepared, Monument Inn's selection of sauces will perfect the meal – top your seafood with our Orleans sauce, a decadent crawfish étouffée sauce that provides the perfect dash of flavor; or our Creole sauce, made with crawfish, shrimp, bell pepper and onions in a spicy tomato sauce. If you want something a little more rich, try the Pontchartrain sauce, a creamy white wine sauce made with crab, mushrooms, and shrimp; or the Monumental sauce, shrimp, oysters, and crawfish in a delicious beurre blanc sauce.
You don't have to sacrifice flavor to eat healthy in Houston! Visit Monument Inn today and enjoy eating out in a casual family restaurant. For restaurant or banquet and meeting room information, call Monument Inn at 281-479-1521.
