I'm trying to be healthy. I play tennis, take Zumba, and run. I only eat turkey or chicken for meat. I have focused on choosing more whole grains, fruits and vegetables in my diet. It's hard as a mom but I know I need to be an example for my children. So when the fine folks at Piccadilly Restaurants asked me to introduce you all to their new "healthy as you want to be" Homestyle Veggie Plate promotion , I was very interested.
I like the idea of not being forced to choose a meat! Guests who choose the Homestyle Veggie Plate can pick three sides and add their choice of freshly baked bread, all for $5.49. You know I love that price! With the Homestyle Veggie Plate, you can choose from an array of sides including everything from broccoli florets and fruit salad, to smothered okra, French fries and carrot soufflé. Like I said…healthy as you want to be! Being able to taste a little bit of everything, and keep the calories in check, is really important to me. Check out all of Piccadilly’s menu of sides online.
Anyone who has spent a number of years in the South knows that Piccadilly is a hometown favorite for good ol' Southern home cooking. The restaurant chain, known as Piccadilly Cafeteria back then, first opened in 1932 in Baton Rouge, La. Today, there are approximately 60 restaurants and 80 food service locations all across the southeast. Never been? Go check them out! Haven't been in forever because you think the food will all be smothered and gravy-covered? Come back to see how things have changed! For more information on the Homestyle Veggie Plate promotion please visit www.piccadilly.com, like them out on Facebook or follow @EatPiccadilly on Twitter.
What is your favorite Piccadilly meal? Which sides would you choose for this Homestyle Veggie Plate promotion? (I think I'd go with broccoli florets, fruit salad and carrot soufflé. Everything in moderation…!)
