Try My Dietitian Approved Entree at Ella's American Bistro in Wayne, PA!

I've partnered with the chef at Ella's American Bistro to create a healthy and delicious meal for patrons to order for dinner. The dish is called "fish (of the day- fill in name here- examples: salmon, swordfish) a la maison" and will be 450- 600 calories on average (depending on the type of fish used). The fish is limited to a 5 oz serving, 1/2 cup of barley cooked with homemade no-sodium added broth, and wilted Swiss Chard with <2 tsp sesame oil.

The nutrition information for the entire dish is available upon request at the restaurant, but keep in mind the nutrients and calories will vary slightly for each fish. As far as healthy menu options go (especially for not being a salad!) this is a sure crowd-pleaser. This dish is very low in calories, sodium, calories, and fat compared to most out there. Be sure to order it and let me know what you think!

Note: The picture  shows an optionalside of Sriracha hot chili sauce which does not come with the meal- this will add about 5 calories and 100 mg of sodium per teaspoon to the dish.
