As New Yorkers, we tend to associate diners with establishments that we visit to binge on deliciously unhealthy meals, such as greasy cheeseburgers, gravy-covered french fries and heaps of delicious hash brown. Of course, during the holiday, we tend to fall off of our conscientious eating bandwagons and consume our guilty pleasure meals, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that a diner can’t be the site of healthy eating.
If you’re recovering from a bout of binge eating this holiday season, why not try one of these healthy yet delicious meals at Amelia’s Diner, one of SoHo’s favorite diners?
- Melon Madness – Healthy eaters are simply mad for melons! From cantaloupe to grapefruit, these fruits are yummy, filling, and make for a substantially sweet meal in the morning. Order a ½ melon or ½ grapefruit and dig in!
- Omelettes, Oh My! – Okay, no one is going to call an omelette full of bacon and cheese a healthy dish, but there are ways to make this yummy egg meal a more health-conscientious option for breakfast. Skip the yolk: order an egg white omelette with nutritious veggies such as spinach and peppers for a filling and fresh meal.
- Spritely Salads – Make no mistake, a salad that is loaded with fattening dressing and cheese can be worse for you than a hefty burger. As long as you are careful, a salad can be a perfectly healthy dish and a way to load up on essential vitamins. Try a simple garden salad and sprinkle a bit of vinegar on top for a delightfully light meal.
