Saratoga Hospital has expanded its inpatient menu, offering plant-based options for every meal.
The hospital added 28 plant-based dishes to its menu earlier this year. All are 100 percent free of animal products, including honey. Although the change was made in anticipation of a state requirement to provide plant-based alternatives, the new menu items also reflect the hospital’s commitment to customer service.
Stephanie Seymour, director of Food and Nutrition Services at the hospital, worked with other certified dietitian nutritionists to develop plant-based dishes that meet the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics calorie and nutrient requirements, and parallel non-plant-based or other hospital menu items.
Other plant-based menu dishes include chicken salad, tuna salad, egg salad, pizza, chili, chicken parmesan and pasta primavera.
