One way that you can approach the creation of the menu at your upcoming catered even is to offer ways for your guests to eat healthy food in a variety of tasty applications. If you're someone who works hard to eat healthily, you may feel some sense of an obligation to ensure that your event's attendees can also enjoy healthy fare. As such, it can be fun to think about certain healthy foods that you enjoy and discuss various preparation methods with your catering professional. Kale is one example of a superfood that is rich in nutrients — but to which some people have minimal exposure. Here are some ways that you may ask your caterer to prepare kale for your guests.
A good way to show people that healthy food can taste good when it's prepared properly is to have your catering professional make kale chips. There are many different recipes online for this dish, and it's possible that your caterer may even have experience with kale chips in the past. Generally, the kale is tossed with oil and a variety of spices and then baked. The result can be a spicy, crispy treat that is a good way for people to get exposed to kale.
Most people enjoy various types of salad, and salad can often be a good addition to any catered menu. Your caterer can likely offer a wide range of kale salads for you to choose — including those that contain additions such as goat cheese, berries, roasted almonds, and more. While you can definitely choose one of these salads, another option is to choose a Caesar salad variant. Instead of this salad being made up of romaine lettuce, your caterer can combine kale with the romaine. The salad will still overwhelmingly taste like a Caesar, but it will have the added health benefits of the kale.
Smoothies can make sense at a variety of catered events. At a workplace event, for example, you might like the idea of offering smoothies that your employers can take back to their desks to enjoy while they work. At outdoor events, smoothies can be a fun way to beat the heat. Of course, a smoothie is best when it's healthy — and that means adding some vegetables to the mix of fruit. Kale is a common smoothie ingredient, and many people find that this is an ideal way to consume this vegetable without necessarily being aware of the taste.
Talk with your catering company to discuss more ideas for including this healthy food in the dishes they serve.
