Mushrooms can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. They make for a nice addition to any salad and can also go great when smothered over a juicy steak. They’re one of those foods that a lot of people don’t seem to come around to until adulthood, but then are left wondering why they ever passed up something so tasty in the past.
Taste is just one of the great aspects of mushrooms though. They also bring a handful of health benefits to the table that you might not have known about, but should only enhance your appetite for these little gems.
Below is an excerpt from an article found on vegnews.com the details some of the health benefits offered up by some different types of mushrooms. Check it out… Read More »
The health benefits of breakfast are well-known to most people.
It’s no secret that when you wake up, your body has gone a long time without any new energy pumped into it. And when the chaos of starting a work day is staring you straight in the face, the last thing you want to have piling on to you is hunger.
But what about just overall happiness? It seems like common sense that if your body is fueled for the day, you’re going to feel better and feel happier! Read More »
For the bulk of most people’s lives, we’ve heard endlessly about eating balanced meals. And to have stood such a test of time, there’s definitely something to it all.
When it comes to healthy servings of the meat and potatoes variety like you’ll get with a lot of dishes at Perko’s, often times you’ll also have the option to add a soup or salad for only about $2 more.
For the sake of a well-balanced meal, we say take that option when it’s there! Why not round things out with some greens, other vegetables, or a warm soup to get your meal started off? That kind of balance is something that the food pyramid we’re all so familiar with would definitely approve of, so why leave any part of the pyramid excluded from your meal?
It seems that everywhere people have different keys to weight loss. Eat this, don’t eat that, take this supplement… Rarely is there consistency when it comes to weigh-loss strategies.
So when one strategy is essentially universally endorsed, you’d best take heed. It’s simple: Eat breakfast!
Whether it’s to fuel your body for the coming day or to jump-start your metabolism, breakfast is crucial.
Below is an excerpt from an article found on WebMD.com that outlines some of the importance of eating breakfast every day.
What’s for breakfast – coffee? Most mornings, we barely glance at the kitchen. Fixing breakfast takes up precious time that’s in short supply. But there’s ample evidence that the simple act of eating breakfast — every day — is a big part of losing weight, lots of weight. Read More »
Some salads are best served as a side dish to something bigger. A healthy addition to a massive steak dinner is one prime example.
Then there are other salads that you can count on to fill you up. And not only will the salad fill you up, but it’ll satisfy your taste buds and offer up a slew of nutritional benefits! One in particular will stand though, and that’s the Cobb Salad.
We start on a bed of fresh greens, just like any good salad does. Then we add in some diced chicken breast and bacon to satisfy your meat cravings. We then include some avocado, egg, olives, carrots, tomatoes, and red onions to round out the bulk of it.
Rounding it all out are the last bursts of flavor with some bleu cheese crumbles and your choice of salad dressing! Read More »
Eggs are one of the easiest ways to get essential vitamins, nutrients, and protein into a healthy diet. Anyone trying to live a healthy lifestyle should certainly consider adding eggs for one—or all—of their meals. In fact, body builders and endurance athletes alike utilize eggs for a great source of protein and excellent muscle recovery.
So just what are these important vitamins and nutrients that eggs contain?
-Vitamin A, an essential vitamin for night vision, and healthy skin and bones
-B Vitamins, which help convert food into energy
-Vitamin E that can prevent cell damage and, in turn, prevent cancer
-Folate, an essential nutrient in preventing birth defects
-Lutein, which protects your eyes from cataracts and macular degeneration Read More »
The mere mention of bacon is enough to water the taste buds of most people out there. Couple that with its ease in cooking and its expanded role as a topping on things such as burgers and salads, and it is quite the diverse side dish.
Sausage has quite a bit of diversity of its own though. There are countless uses of encased meats out there in the world, some of which have even gotten pretty exotic. But even in its most basic form, breakfast sausage is a massively delightful side dish in its own right. And if you couple sausage with bacon on the same plate, chances are you’ve got a happy customer!
But still, bacon and sausage have their differences. While both are undoubtedly delightful, we find it intriguing to see how passionately some people feel about their preferred breakfast meat. We’ve got both at Perko’s, but plenty of dishes are going to put you on the spot to choose which breakfast meat your heart truly desires. Read More »
