How To Continue the New Year on a Healthy Note

Have you already blown your New Year’s resolution to eat healthy? Get back on the right track at Greens & Proteins Healthy Kitchen and Juice Bar, the new restaurant with an affordable and health-conscious menu in Henderson.

Keep your diet on track with soups, sandwiches, wraps, burgers and pizzas all with a healthy twist. Vegans and vegetarians will find menus to appease their diets while even those on HCG will find items to satisfy their cravings.

The Margherita pizza with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, roasted garlic and basil on a Lavash crust weighs in at 305 calories. The bison cheese steak comes with red onions, peppers and low-fat mozzarella. The turkey burger is made with free-range turkey ground from scratch (not a frozen patty), alfalfa sprouts, lettuce, tomato and onions.

Build your own meal by picking from a selection of proteins, greens, grains and sauces. Proteins include a plethora of options such as bison, filet mignon, Ahi tuna, salmon and ostrich that can be prepared to your liking. Spirulina and wakame salad, caramelized onions, kale and edamame are just some of the 14 greens choices, while grains include a variety of rices, cous cous, sweet potato mashed, quinoa and more. Aged balsamic reduction, spicy peanut sauce and other sauces can then be added to top the dish off.

On the smoothie end of the market, find fresh-blended smoothies and coffee drinks such as the wellness drink made of green grapes, green apple, pineapple, orange, lime, wheat grass, kale, spinach, collard greens, ginger, flax seed and ice or the chocolate peanut butter banana shake, made of soy or almond milk, cacao powder, dark chocolate chips, green cabbage, banana, avocado, kale, spinach, zucchini, flax seed, chia seeds, peanuts, honey, vanilla and ice. Even coffee gets a healthy kick with the Chocolate Veggiechino, a tasty puree of soy or almond milk, cacao powder, dark chocolate chips, whole flavored coffee beans, avocado, spinach, kale, collard greens, flax seed, raisins, vanilla, Stevia and ice.  The key is that these drinks are loaded with nutrient-dense vegetables yet still taste like guilty pleasures.
