Four Food Favs: Healthy Finds
Whether you are looking for a night out, a quick pick up, or are in the mood to try something new, these options in Dubois County offer health-conscious and delicious choices.
Agaves Mexican Grill, Ferdinand – The mouth-watering Pollo Light dish features lightly-seasoned grilled chicken served with Mexican rice, lettuce, tomatoes, and slices of fresh avocado. Or try the Tacos Huichol – lettuce wraps filled with your choice of grilled shrimp, chicken, or steak, and includes Mexican rice, pico de gallo, pineapple, and avocado. Look for the “Healthy Choices” symbol throughout their menu for lighter options.
Made with Grace, Jasper – Fresh fruit and yogurt parfait cups are prepared for convenient purchase at this downtown shop. A variety of delicious smoothies are also made on the spot.
Co-owner Lisa Lamont says, “The fresh-cut fruit bowls are definitely a customer favorite! They have a variety of fruit in them that is already cleaned, cut, and ready to eat. Our strawberry banana smoothie seems to be the favorite of smoothies, however, the ‘green’ options we started offering in the recent weeks are becoming a favorite as well.”
Mama T’s Italian Steakhouse, Huntingburg – Known for traditional pasta dishes and hearty meat selections, this Italian eatery also features rave-worthy lighter fare. The fresh salmon, packed with powerful flavor, is a go-to for many customers who frequent the Historic 4th Street restaurant. Pairs perfectly with a baked potato and steamed vegetables.
Fueled Strength Meals – Talk about convenience! Chef Tim Flick offers premium gluten-free, pick-up meals in Jasper at Downtown Fitness, and a second location coming soon to Ferdinand.
“I want to provide great food and culinary education to help people realize how to lose weight and get healthy. Because nutrition is vital to one’s overall health and there aren’t many healthy options, especially with fast food. Sugar, processed foods, and gluten are terrible for anyone’s diet, and we want to show individuals that food can taste great and be good for you too!” Tim says.
Options vary week to week, but popular staples include Pistachio Chicken, Caribbean Pork Tenderloin, and Italian Meatballs. Simply order online and pick up your meals on the designated day. Super Easy!
