A Bowlful of Nutrition: Vegetables, Fruit, Grains, Protein-laden Antioxidants for Health, Exercise, and Fitness at the Flat Top Grill in Lombard

Daily requirements of walking exercise and fitness take up a lot of our energy everyday. We have to compensate the loss by replenishing our nutrition with a balanced diet and a regular bowl full of vegetables, fruit, grains, nuts, with protein-laden antioxidants. Humans consume antioxidants in the form of supplemental vitamins, minerals, and amino acids which protect human cells, like “atoms”, with “extra” electrons, surrounding the cells. The human cell is an atom consisting of two (2) paired electrons. When toxins like air pollution, second-hand smoking, stress, sunlight, pesticides, chemicals, germs, bacteria, and virus-acquired disease, release “free” radicals into the human body, the same free radicals damage human cells and cellular growth. The human cells that make up our body are composed of many atoms. When toxins attack human cells, one of the electrons is destroyed. A human cell missing an atom is called a “free” radical. In numbers, these free radicals can alter or destroy human cells causing disease. Damaged human cells cause or contribute to premature aging, sickness, diseases, and other terminal illnesses. During Antioxidant Level Screening, Dr. George Michalopoulos, D.C. explains that humans age, get sick, and acquire diseases without the required nutritional antioxidants and supplementation from vitamins, amino acids, and minerals—using the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner™ S2, the World’s First Non-Invasive Antioxidant Measuring Tool. Vegetables, fruit, grains, and protein-laden with antioxidants protect human cell growth surrounding the atoms in the human body to give up free radicals, in order to eliminate the harmful effects of toxins and neutralize damage to cell growth, to reduce the human risk of disease, with healthy food, and wholesome nutrition. A bowlful of stir-fried vegetables, fruit, grains, and protein cooked at the Flat Top Grill satisfies the daily nutritional balanced requirement for human exercise and fitness routines during walking, running, jogging, sports training, contact athletic activities, the Chicago Marathon races, and other competitive team sports.

The Flat Top Grill at the Court Yard in Lombard welcomes everyone with a large bowl of nutrition full of vegetables, fruit, grains, and protein seasoned with your choice of sauces, accompanied by a fresh whole egg, and garnished with your favorite toppings—nuts, crispy noodles, sesame seeds, ginger, or additional spices to taste. Here’s your recipe for a large bowlful of wholesome nutrition for health, exercise, and fitness.

You can make your own stir-fry by selecting white rice, organic brown rice, yellow Chinese noodles, or Thai rice noodles. Add salad greens, fresh baby spinach leaves, bean sprouts, soy beans “edamame”, tofu in a variety of forms like tempeh, plain or seasoned, spicy, large green pea pods, crispy, sweet, and crunchy, kernels of yellow corn, fresh sliced mushrooms, radishes, water chestnuts, large chunks of sweet, juicy pineapple, chopped green onions, and fresh parsley to taste. Top all your stir-fry ingredients with your choice of savory sauces by ladlefuls: soy sauce, black bean and garlic sauce, pomegranate dressing with fresh sliced basil, chopped, peanut sauce, plum sauce, sweet and sour sauce, and other varieties of spicy sauces, etc. Then pick your protein for the small bowl, ranging from freshly cut chicken, pork, beef or calamari squid—sometimes you can find fresh shrimp or fish by selection. Add one whole fresh egg. Then top with your choice of seasonings, sesame seeds, powdered ginger, red pepper flakes, and/or crispy noodles, chopped nuts, etc. Leave your table number and name on a wooden stick and wait for the chef to cook your stir-fry meal over the Flat Top Grill. Then the waitress will bring the large bowl to the table for you to enjoy this wholesome and healthy food with a tall glass of iced water or your choice of beverages. Lunch is all you can eat in a large bowl, unlimited, starting at 12:30 PM.
