Seafood Is One Of Natural Best Choices

15 Jun

With the start of the New Year, many of us have decided to focus on a healthier diet. One of the biggest challenges most people face when trying to eat healthy is dining out. A fixture in South California for over forty years, Gladstones Restaurant offers up some of the area’s best seafood. Seafood is one of nature’s best choices when it comes to eating healthy.

Experts generally agree that seafood has a myriad of nutritional benefits. Seafood is chock full of omega-3 fatty acids and is believed to help protect against several diseases including heart disease and cancer. On top of those benefits, seafood and the omega-3’s they contain can also protect your immune system and they contain an anti-inflammatory agent.


With the knowledge that seafood is a good choice for healthy eating, you can examine some of the menu choices found at Gladstones. The restaurant has a raw bar where you can choose from oysters, shrimp, and crab to start your meal. While boosting your immune system, you can look out over the surf while seated on the grand patio and be sure that you are consuming the freshest seafood available. The menu offers a variety of selections for your main course, from classic menu dishes to sandwiches, pastas and soups. For that romantic evening with a loved one, you can select from several shared plate options. If you are in need of choices that are lower in calories, you won’t be disappointed in the choices available.

With a commitment to health, you can also enjoy some of the red wines available. Enjoyed in moderation, wine has been shown to offer up some health benefits as well. For calorie counters, white wines usually have fewer calories than red wines. There is more than an ample selection of wine choices available at Gladstones.

Dessert doesn’t have to be skipped just because you’ve decided to eat a healthier diet. True, Gladstones offers up some decadent choices, but there are other desserts available that aren’t diet busters. Try sampling the strawberry shortcake topped with fresh strawberries. You can also share some key lime tarts with your dining companion.

The California Salmon Salad is a wise choice for meeting your omega-3 nutritional requirements, and your caloric requirements. The salad contains grilled salmon and fresh salad vegetables tossed with a citrus and red wine vinaigrette. If salmon isn’t your style, try sampling the garlic shrimp tacos.
