We love fresh seasonal foods at Balans and enjoyed sharing some seasonal favorites with you at the grand opening party. It seems that this time of year as we go though the holidays starting with Halloween, then Thanksgiving and straight through Christmas time there is constantly an occasion in which it is tempting to indulge. We wanted our food choices to reflect our principles of clean eating while still being delicious and inviting. How do you entertain lots of people and offer good nutritious whole food selections? Our talented in house chef, Marie Aspling had the answers.
