Every lunch and dinner, the Grille station in Café Mac features chicken breasts ready for consumption. The South and East stations can be counted on to provide meat-laden curries or stir-frys, and the pasta station is never without an option of animal-protein mixed in with the noodles of the day.

Green lentil, onion and swiss chard salad

This is one of my favorite recipes; it’s quick, nutritious and very easy to alter to personal taste.
