Grilled chicken, diced tomatoes, Bermuda onions, feta cheese, arugula and couscous, tossed in a Greek salad dressing make this salad worthy of your taste buds.

Crispy, roasted Brussels sprouts mix with Parmesan cheese, roasted tomatoes, and garlic croutons. We then toss it with baby kale and creamy Caesar dressing.

This is the perfect salad to give you energy for the rest of your day! Chip’s Power Salad is made with shredded kale, fresh blueberries, cucumber, red onion, protein packed sunflower seeds, grilled chicken breast, and crimson quinoa. It is then tossed in a light champagne vinaigrette making it a nutritious and delicious meal.
5. Turkey Avocado Melt
The turkey avocado melt consists of fresh roasted turkey, avocado, baby spinach, roasted red peppers and mayo, served on sourdough.
6. Veggie Burger
A classic choice for the vegetarians out there, the veggie burger is a Mediterranean vegetable burger topped with tomato chutney, provolone cheese, and spinach on a brioche roll.
7. Roasted Boston Cod
A roasted cod filet is topped with a Greek style salsa. It’s then served with rice pilaf and the veggie of the day!
8. Patriotic Oatmeal
Oatmeal is a great heart healthy meal, so it’s a great way to start the day! We make our patriotic oatmeal with steel cut oats, toasted pecans, and top it off with fresh fruit!
9. Chip’s Healthy Omelet
Chip’s healthy omelet is made with egg whites and then filled with any three veggies of your choice. We also add Canadian or turkey bacon, but you can leave that out to make this a lighter choice! The omelet comes with a cup of fresh fruit and wheat-berry toast.
10. Popeye’s Omelet
The Popeye’s Omelet is an egg white omelet filled with Popeye’s super food (spinach), feta, tomato, and onion. Enjoy one fresh blueberry or strawberry pancake on the side.
This list of food is delicious and nutritious. However, if a stack of pancakes is how you want to prepare for your summer bod, we totally support that too!
