What Sets Avalon Pockets Apart from other “Healthy” Restaurants
Of course, there are plenty of more known restaurants in the greater Orlando area that serves healthy meals like the Reel Fish Coastal Kitchen & Bar, Amatista Cookhouse at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, Ethos Vegan Kitchen, The Sanctum Café and a lot others, but few of them offer authentic Mediterranean diet cuisines. What’s so special about the Mediterranean diet anyway and why does Avalon Pockets is talking about it all the time? Well, because its health benefits are way above any other diet and it’s highly recommended by almost all health experts all over the world.
What Health Experts Say About the Mediterranean Diet?
Ever since the Mediterranean diet was discovered in the 1960s and subsequently exposed to the west, more and more health experts rally behind it and promote it as a natural alternative to modern invasive medicine. As it turns out, the Mediterranean diet does a whole lot more than any pill or medical procedure ever could! It can reverse the effects of chronic illnesses like CVD, diabetes; Alzheimer’s and even some cancers, as well as serve as a preventive maintenance for any person who has these chronic diseases.
Avalon Pockets did not set out to serve Mediterranean dishes for this purpose, but we are proud that our food can make people healthy. Just take a look at some of the quotes of medical doctors on the Mediterranean diet:
“One of the best things you can do for your heart is follow the Mediterranean diet, there’s also growing evidence that it may help people live longer.” – Dr. Gabelman, assistant clinical professor of medicine at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons
“This diet is successful and beneficial because it emphasizes healthy fats and proteins, like legumes, nuts, fish and olive oil. Using these foods in place of simple carbohydrates and saturated fats will boost energy, shed weight and ultimately prevent heart disease.” – Jay Mohan, DO, chief cardiology fellow at McLaren Macomb-Oakland Medical Centers
“A Mediterranean-way of eating has also been proven to reduce obesity, prevent asthma and autoimmune disorders, and prevent pre-atherosclerotic changes in major arteries in children.” – Eric Zacharias MD and author of The Mediterranean Diet: A Clinician’s Guide
“When people think of the Mediterranean diet, they think of a heart-healthy diet, but really, the Mediterranean diet has been shown to prevent Alzheimer’s disease, macular degeneration and cancer as well.” – Dr. Timothy Harlan, editor-in-chief of Health meets Food: the Culinary Medicine Curriculum
Why Dine at Avalon Pockets?
Well, we can give you no particular reason, except for our food has the best health benefits and they’re also very delicious. After all that’s been said and done, it really comes down to your preference about what kind of food a particular restaurant serves, its proximity to your residence (you’d want to be able to drive to a diner in 5-10 minutes time and eat after waiting another 2-5 more minutes), affordability, ambience and comfortability. For those who live in East Orlando or near Avalon Park, then you will find all these in Avalon Pockets, but if you live farther and love long drives, then you will find that our restaurant is a very comfortable place to hang out and socialize.
If you’re a patron of fast food joints, trying out our restaurant would be a healthy new interest for you to entertain. In fact, if you like our food, you can just keep coming back and eventually turn this into habit – one that you won’t regret doing. Do recommend Avalon Pockets to your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, or even total strangers who want something to eat. Think of how many lives you will change by helping them making a simple decision on where to dine.
The Bottom Line
Essentially, I’m just saying that you should stop by Avalon Pockets if ever you’re near Avalon Park and try some of our sumptuous meals. While you’re at it you can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of this beautiful park that will take you back to the Victorian Era England, except there are no Britons here, or maybe you’ll bump into one who is most likely a tourist. The magnificent architecture of the surrounding buildings combined with lush greenery and well-designed landscape, as well as the awe-inspiring Eastern Orlando skyline makes for a great getaway within the city. It will be a pleasant experience that you will cherish forever.
