Healthy Food at the Coffee Bean

At the Coffee Bean we take great pride in our products. Our philosophy is quality above quantity and for that reason our chefs use the finest ingredients to prepare each meal.

 

We use olive oil: Oorganic olive oil is a monounsaturated fat, and is considered a good fatty acid (high density lipoproteins, HDLs) protect against bad cholesterol, or low density lipoproteins (LDLs). It's long been reported that there are a number of health benefits of olive oil. Olive oil is also known to be gentle on the digestive system, and even may help prevent gallstones and soothe ulcers. Good quality olive oil contains valuable vitamins and nutrients, and it is loaded with antioxidants, which many believe help protect the body from cancer.

Grilled Chicken- Chicken breast, the leanest part, has less fat and a good substitute for pork and beef. Grilled chicken breast can provide you with an excellent source of daily protein. Try eating healthy grilled chicken breast for lunch with big servings of vegetables. Our grilled chicken breast is marinated in olive oil, spices and lemon, and you can match this with one of our salads made of crispy and fresh vegetables, which make you, feel fuller and satisfied.
 

Salad- Eating a salad almost every day may be one of the healthiest eating habits you can adopt. Not only that, but salads are cool, crunchy, and fun to eat (lots of textures, colors, and flavors). Salads add fiber to your diet and help to lower cholesterol. If you frequently eat green salads, you'll likely have higher blood levels of a host of powerful antioxidants (vitamin C and E, folic acid, lycopene, and alpha- and beta-carotene,) especially if your salad includes some raw vegetables. Antioxidants are substances that help protect the body from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals.

For years, researchers have noted a link between eating lots of fruits and vegetables and lower risks of many diseases, particularly cancer. A recent study from the National Cancer Institute suggests that people whose diets are rich in fruits and vegetables may have a lower risk of developing cancers of the head and neck -- even those who smoke and drink heavily. Foods found to be particularly protective include beans and peas, string beans, peppers, tomatoes, carrots and apples. Our vast menu allows you to customize your diet by including the listed items onto your plate!
