It's National Salad Month & Ours Are Filling, Healthy, & Delicious!

In honor of National Salad Month (which happens to fall in May, which happens to be right now) today's blog takes a closer look at some great reasons to order a salad for lunch or dinner. After that, you'll get a look at the many different kinds of salads you can order at JB Hook's. We're not just talking about a side salad to enjoy before your main meal at our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant but dishes that are hearty and delicious enough to enjoy as a main dish.

Good For You & Delicious
Vegetables do a body good and that's generally what the majority of ingredients in salads consist of. Of course, here at our fine dining restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, not only do we add fresh vegetables but an exquisite variety of delicious cheeses, meats, and more! Here are a few of the many health benefits you will enjoy when you dine on a salad for lunch or dinner.
  • Part of a Balanced Diet
    It's a great way to work in your daily serving (or more) of vegetables for a well-balanced diet. 
  • Good Source of Fiber
    Salads are a wonderful source of fiber which can lower cholesterol levels. Eating more fiber makes you feel fuller much faster, meaning you will eat less. Proper fiber intake has also been shown to help prevent some types of cancer. 
  • Powerful Antioxidants
    The leafy greens and other vegetables in salads contain a wide variety of antioxidants which can change slightly depending on exactly which veggies you use. These include vitamin C, vitamin E, folic acid, lycopene, and alpha- and beta-carotene.
  • Better Eyesight
    Many leafy greens contain carotenoids which help your eyes adjust from brightness to darkness and help to filter out high-intensity light levels.
