Visit bellagreen For A Healthy Meal And Then Splurge On Dessert For National Chocolate Day On October 28th!

Did you know that October 28th is a National Chocolate Day?  In honor of this fabulous day, I'll tell you about one of my favorite restaurants, bellagreen, which is the ultimate destination for National Chocolate Day thanks to their iconic white chocolate bread pudding and domino cake!  Personally, I love their healthy menu items and that National Chocolate Day gives me an excuse to splurge on one of their decadent deserts.  In today's post, I'll tell you more about bellagreen.

We visited the bellagreen location at Park and Preston in Plano. They also have other locations in Texas.  (Search for them here.) I love the healthy menu items at the bellagreen restaurants, which you'll see in the photos below, but something else that I want to highlight is that this restaurant strives to reduce their ecological footprint and is dedicated to helping to maintain beautiful communities.  My eco-friendly heart loves this restaurant.  It represents one of the things that I miss most from the west coast -- healthy food options and a dedication to sustainability. 

Let me share a few menu items that my family loves. Personally, my husband and I prefer salads for National Chocolate Day in order to save our calories for a decadent dessert.  The salad below is the Goat Cheese Salad with Grilled Chicken. This salad contains mixed greens, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes, sliced apples, and parmesan cheese. It is tossed with a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette and topped with a warm almond-crusted goat cheese medallion.  This salad is my favorite. You'll also notice the generous sized portion.

The next salad is the Honey-Fried Goat Cheese and Arugula Salad. This salad contains baby arugula, fresh jicama, almonds, raisins, shaved carrots and mango. It is tossed with their mango ranch dressing and topped with parmesan cheese and a honey-fried goat cheese medallion.  This is a unique menu item thanks to the honey-fried goat cheese medallion. My husband is obsessed with it!

My children love pizza. However, we start with a healthy appetizer for them prior to pizzas.  We recently tried the House-Made Hummus Made with Organic Chickpeas.  The hummus is served with kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and house-made flatbread that disappears quickly!

My oldest son loves the Home Slice Pizza that contains large hand-sliced pepperoni atop tomato sauce, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese. It is finished with garlic olive oil & fresh basil.

My youngest loves the Fig & Pig. This trendy pizza contains fig jam, mozzarella, parmesan, goat cheese, and prosciutto. It is finished with balsamic vinegar, garlic olive oil, and fresh basil.

Finally, let's talk about the fabulous dessert options that are worthy of a special mention on National Chocolate Day! 

The House-Made White Chocolate Bread Pudding is my personal favorite.  Bread pudding has always been one of my favorite desserts. The good quality ingredients and the special twist with white chocolate is amazing in the bellagreen version of bread pudding. This dessert alone will make it worthwhile to visit bellagreen.

Another delicious option is the Domino Cake.  This rich and decadent treat comes in a generous portion size.  All four of us shared the two desserts and loved them. (Happy National Chocolate Day, indeed!)

We hope that you enjoy this glimpse into our recent visit to bellagreen. The combination of healthy menu items and decadent chocolate desserts is perfect for National Chocolate Day on October 28th!
