Ike & Tuna.

A dynamic pairing of Ahi tuna steak & wasabi mashed potatoes served with grilled veggies.

Spice up your meal with this pick. Ahi tuna is jam-packed with omega-3 fatty acids for your heart and B vitamins for energy. Wasabi heats things up to keep portions down and a side of grilled veggies rounds out this meal.

Roasted Beet Salad.

Red and yellow beats, apples, frisee, goat cheese, toasted pistachios and apple cider vinaigrette.

Pump up your immune system with this salad choice. Beets are very high in antioxidants, especially the ones that help maintain eye and nerve health. Paired with the dark leafy greens of the frisee and the pistachios this salad is a choice full of good health.

Kansas City, MO 64108

Fajitas Vegetarianas.

Sizzling grilled onions, bell peppers and zucchini served with a side of sour cream, pico de gallo, rice and frijoles de la hoya (beans from the pot), Served with flour or corn tortillas.

Go veggie and still enjoy one of your favorite Mexican dishes. By eliminating the steak you’ll save up to 280 calories (6 oz), 8 grams of fat and about 130 grams of cholesterol, which is almost 50% of your daily cholesterol needs. Go easy on the sour cream and replace the refried beans with the frijoles de la hoya. By doing this you will not only reduce the overall calorie and fat content of the meal it’s a great way to get more fiber in the meal as well, which can help with naturally lowering cholesterol and helping you feel fuller faster.

El Patron

2905 Southwest Boulevard
Kansas City, MO 64108

Coctel de Camarones.

Mexican shrimp cocktail mixed in a spicy tomato based chilled soup with diced avocados, pico de gallo, celery, salt and pepper served in a jumbo cocktail glass with crackers.

This is one healthy cocktail! Tomatoes are full of antioxidants and vitamin C while the shrimp are a low fat lean protein. The avocado is packed with heart healthy monounsaturated fats, fiber and vitamin E. 

Papa Lews

2128 East 12th Street 
Kansas City, MO 64127

Baked chicken or Blackened Salmon with one side.

Sides: cabbage, broccoli or collard greens.

Bake and save! Choosing baked chicken over fried chicken can cut the fat grams in half and save at least 100 calories. Take an extra step to remove the skin and you’ll save even more cholesterol and fat. Pairing the chicken with a cruciferous vegetable will fill you up with vitamins K, A and C, antioxidants to fight cancer while keeping your waist line trim. 
Salmon is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3's help with proper brain function and may help reduce the risk of heart disease. By skipping a one cup serving of dressin' you can save a whopping 350 calories, 15 grams of fat and more than half you daily needs in sodium.
