Turning your restaurant green, from A-Z
From a pure public relations standpoint, going green is right up there with being trans-fat free.
Almonds deliver valuable nutrients—protein, unsaturated fat, vitamin E, antioxidants, fiber. Of course almonds are not calorie free—they have 163 calories per ounce—but they pack a lot of nutrients per calorie; they are “nutrient dense” in other words. At the other extreme are so-called “empty calories,” like those from soda or candy. What’s more, almonds, like other nuts, do a good job of satisfying hunger and make people feel satiated.
Vegetarian cuisine is moving mainstream - there’s no denying that Meatless Mondays were only the beginning. Going one step further to a vegan diet – no meat, poultry or fish as well as no eggs, dairy foods and other animal-derived products such as honey – is gaining momentum as well, driven by health, animal welfare and environmental concerns.
