What's for lunch? Tuesday, May 17th

Tomorrow we are serving Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes and String Bean Almondine for lunch.

In our quest to serve healthy well balanced meals, we are working with many local NYS farmers to get the freshest ingredients.

Our beef is also sourced locally and is grass fed. What would grass fed beef matter to me, you ask?
Perhaps the most amazing aspect of grass farming is that the meat offers tremendously significant health benefits. Grass fed beef contains high levels of Omega 3’s—the fatty acids that can reduce cholesterol and fight heart disease. In contrast, grain-finished animals from feedlots are high in Omega 6’s—the fatty acids that can raise cholesterol levels. In addition, grass fed beef offers 400 percent more vitamin A and E than commercial beef, and is rich in beta-carotene and conjugated linoleic acids, both major cancer inhibitors.
