Rebecca Jean Catering promotes healthy lifestyles — that includes what and how you eat at work! We’re frequently asked about the nutritional value of our food and are happy to share our approach to shaping our Daily Dining menus.
Q: Is your food healthy?
A: Yes! All of our menus are well balanced and healthy, consisting of whole foods that are minimally processed. We use non-hydrogenated oils (like olive, canola, and rice bran oil). We do not use cans for anything.
Q: What about portion sizes?
A: We usually compose a sample plate on our buffets to demonstrate what a healthy serving looks like, or have educated Front-of-House staff available at meal time to direct behaviors. Our food is meant to be eaten together as a complete meal: mixing the provided vegetable, protein, salad, and sauce options on your plate will result in a well rounded and filling meal.
Q: I am a vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free eater, or following other special dietary restrictions. How will I know that my needs are being met?
A: All of our menus are labeled with accurate nutrition coding, specifying W (wheat), D (dairy), GF (gluten-free), DF (dairy-free) or V (vegan). Follow the code, or ask one of our on-site servers if you have a question or concern. We try to make it easier to have a delicious meal while following dietary restrictions, so if you have a specific request, just ask!
Q: Do you provide fat/calories or other detailed nutrition information for your meals?
A: Our menus are so dynamic that we would need a full-time lab of analysts to run reports on each our items for nutritional information that specific (no joke). Because we rely upon the skill of our chefs to create each dish, as opposed to standardized recipes, we focus on fresh ingredients and healthy preparations rather than lab results.
Q: Why do your menus change daily? It is December, where are my tomatoes?
A: We are blessed with a bounty of seasonal ingredients and we use this to our advantage. There is nothing like sinking your teeth into a local peach when it is in season. Sure, we may miss that tomato momentarily… but it is hard to mourn too long when butternut squash and kale are calling.
Q: What about dessert? All this talk of vegetables has left me feeling rebellious…
A: Don’t worry — we can’t live without chocolate either. The good news is that all of our pastries are made in-house and we use real ingredients like European butter, flour, and fresh eggs to make our baked good, truffles, cakes, and cupcakes. We also produce a wide selection of gluten-free and vegan baked goods because let’s face it… everyone needs a little sweet in their life.
Q: Okay, I am convinced. Where can I find pictures of your food and reviews from clients?
A: We thought you’d never ask! Visit us on Facebook and check out our reviews on Yelp or write one of your own once you’ve given us a try. We look forward to sharing your next meal with you!
Yours in good taste,
Rebecca Jean Catering
