Healthy Catering Options For The New Year

healthy catering options for your Fairfax VA corporate event | Silver Spoon Caterers

By the end of January, let’s be honest, nearly everyone has already fallen off the New Year’s resolution wagon. But not you. Not this year. You’re committed to make healthier food choices, and that means catering healthy meals too. As your premier corporate event caterer, we hear it all the time: “It’s so hard to eat healthy when I’m constantly attending banquets, and networking events, and dinners out with clients.” And the truth is, while it may sometimes be more difficult to do so, it’s not impossible.

Choose healthy catering options for your next corporate function.

Opt for whole-grain (over white) bread, rice, or pasta — that’s a big one. Use low-fat, low-salt, and reduced-sugar alternatives. And three: Serve fresh fruit and vegetables. It’s really that easy. Not convinced? Let’s get specific.

Breakfast

Even your Fairfax VA healthy catering partner can recognize that breakfast gets tricky. Say, “catered breakfast” and what do people expect? Pastries, that’s what people expect. And pastry, you can provide when you opt for items like whole grain muffins, or scones.

Consider a few other healthy breakfast options:

  • Cereal — Think whole grain, like Raisin Bran or Corn Flakes.
  • Fruit — Serve fresh, seasonal fruit in a salad, whole, or in pieces.
  • Yogurt — Some like it plain; others like it flavored. Opt for low- or no-fat varieties.
  • Eggs — Scramble them. Boil them. Poach them. Or serve omelets.
  • Vegetables — They’re not just for lunch and dinner any more.

Hot Dishes

You already know the basics: Less processed junk, and more real food. It’s how you eat at home, and it’s what we’ll serve your guests.

  • Soup — Choose vegetable or legume-based soups, and broth over cream.
  • Vegetables — They’re great, and they’re yummy to the tummy any time of day! They can be steamed, microwaves, grilled or roasted.
  • Pasta — Yes, pasta! As long as it’s whole grain. Opt for tomato or vegetable-based sauces, and use only small amounts of low-fat cheese.
  • Meat — It’s all about the meats: Beef, lamb, pork, poultry. Choose lean cuts, and opt for low-fat cooking methods (grilled or roasted) over other methods that require the addition of fat. Serve hot entrée dishes with healthy side items like a salad, fresh vegetables or a baked potato.

Even dessert can be healthy when you choose fruit.

Silver Spoon Caterers makes fresh, seasonal fruit tarts and pie — just decadent enough to be delicious.
