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.
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.
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:
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.
Silver Spoon Caterers makes fresh, seasonal fruit tarts and pie — just decadent enough to be delicious.
Let’s talk about how healthy food choices can look, and taste great, too.
The holiday season is nearly upon us, and all around people are talking about pumpkin pie and cornbread
stuffing, green bean casserole and bread pudding — but not you. Whether by choice or by circumstance, your Thanksgiving meal must be gluten-free.
Bummer, right? Wrong.
If you think you can’t have a holiday dinner that is both completely gluten-free and down right delicious, think again. Whether you’re looking for inspiration, or hoping to have Silver Spoon Caterers do the cooking for you this feasting season, know that gluten-free doesn’t have to be synonymous with tasteless.

Call Silver Spoon Caterers well in advance of your event, and have some idea in mind of what you’d like to serve. Maybe even bring a few recipe suggestions of your own. Your preparedness will help us ensure that your next gluten-free event is a huge success.
And this, we can’t say enough: Be flexible. While we welcome, and encourage your participation in the menu design (It is your event after all.), we can’t always replicate certain food items identically. But if you keep an open mind, we just might come up with something even more nutritious and delicious.
