Healthy Halloween

Image

We love celebrating Halloween here at Copper Canyon Grill and Stanford Grill! Seeing everyone all dressed up as their favorite character puts a smile on faces. We don’t like, however, all of the gluten filled in our Trick-or-Treaters candy! Did you know, though, some of our classic favorites are actually gluten-free?

If you do want to pass out candy, go with Baby Ruth, or any pure milk or dark chocolate. Other gluten-free options include Pixie Sticks and gummy worms or bears.

Passing out some special treasures to the kids is also a fun, unique idea. Try stickers, friendship bracelets, or other fun favors! These treasures are great because they can last way past the next day, so they hold more value to the trick-or-treaters.

Remember, too much of a good thing is no good! Even healthy candy should be eaten in moderation.

Have a happy, healthy, and safe Halloween from everyone here at Copper Canyon and Stanford!

 

Jazzing Up Orzo

Orzo Rice is one of our favorite foods here at Copper Canyon and Stanford Grill because it’s affordable, healthful, and filling. But, we admit it can get boring at times so we have to get creative with innovative ways to literally “spice” it up. Sure, you could always pick up boxed rice pilaf from the grocery store, but those are filled with preservatives and unnatural ingredients which we try to avoids at all costs. So, we wanted to share a few simple ideas to jazz up your rice.

The most simple way to fill your orzo with flavor is to use chicken or vegetable stock instead of water to cook your rice. You can also infuse the rice in a number of herbs including saffron, lemon zest, curry, and many more. You can even eat rice to satisfy your sweet tooth! Just add melted butter, cinnamon, and sugar to cooked rice for a heartier, healthier alternative to traditional desserts.  

If you are looking for a more out-of-the-box rice idea, try Rice Pilaf with Dried Fruits and Almonds. Prepare any type of pilaf you would like and add dried fruits. We like diced apricots and raisins, but whatever is your favorite or is in season will do. Then, stir in sliced almonds for a filling, delicious, and healthy meal or side!

Flavors of Fall

We are so excited that fall is here because  it’s one of our favorite seasons due to all the iconic flavors! So, if you can’t get enough of fall flavors and are looking to stock your kitchen full of autumnal foods, listen up.

Fruits like apples and cranberries are great to keep around because they are so versatile. You can use them in everything from baked goods to salads. A few of our favorite fall vegetables, like pumpkin and butternut squash are great roasted as a side dish or in soups or stews.

If you want to fill your home with the fragrances of fall, try incorporating autumnal spices like nutmeg, clove, allspice and cinnamon to a recipe and you’ll be in the seasonal spirit in no time!

When discussing fall foods we can’t forget the turkey! Roasted with sage and rosemary (a few more of our favorite fall flavors) turkey is the quintessential autumn fare.

What are some of your favorite fall flavors?
