Our in-house dietitian shares her better eating picks for January 2015

Shira's picks stampYou may notice a new face showing up on your menu this week… literally. That smiling face is that of Shira Katz, our in-house dietitian. Shira joined the EAT Club team last year, and behind the scenes has progressively been shaping the menu to include healthier options each day. She’s now launching her EAT Club celebrity career by putting her name on the dishes that are most balanced and best for sustaining your energy throughout the workday. Before you know it, she’ll be on the front of People magazine.

To easily spot these dishes, just look for the above stamp. Plus, if you hover over that dish to read the description, you’ll also see Shira’s provided her take on why the dish is a good choice. From the protein-packed Turkey Polpette to the fiber-rich French Chicken Salad, these picks will help you navigate better eating through EAT Club in the new year.

Here are Shira’s top picks for January:

French Chicken Salad

French Chicken Salad, The Urban Rabbit
“I am crazy about the white beans in this lower-calorie dish, which are rich in fiber and help balance blood sugar. The result? You’ll feel satisfied longer.”

Turkey Polpette

Turkey Polpette, Eight Acres
“Lean turkey meat paired with kale makes this a smart choice for anyone looking for a dish low in carbohydrates. It is also an excellent source of vitamin C!”

Roasted Vegetable Caponata Salad

Roasted Vegetable Caponata Salad, The Urban Rabbit
“I love this salad because it features an array of vegetables, each providing natural compounds linked to disease prevention.”

Reboot Boxes

Reboot Boxes, Fresh Nest
“As a dietitian, to me, rebooting in the New Year means eating fresh fruits and vegetables, high quality proteins, and healthy fats — these boxes provides all of that and all of the contents are sourced as locally as possible!”

Salmon Couscous Salad

Salmon Couscous Salad, The Urban Rabbit
“The salmon in this dish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which are linked to protection against heart disease.”

Antioxidant Salad

Antioxidants Salad, The Urban Rabbit
“We have spinach and kale to thank for the high vitamin A content of this dish, important in immunity, as well as eye health. And if that’s not enough, this salad is also an excellent source of fiber.”

  1. How long are the detox boxes going to be available? I see them through Tuesday, but not the rest of the week. I know it’s not something to order EVERY day, but i’d like one for Mondays (since weekends are “cheat days” for me). Thanks!

    1. Hi Jeremy,

      Thanks for the feedback! These reboot boxes will be on the menu at least twice a week throughout the month of January. While initially this was supposed to just be a January featured item, due to their success and popularity, we’re working on a longer-term plan to make these boxes available regularly. Stay tuned!
