The Iron Chef treated guests to several delicious dishes in a 3 course meal, showing you can eat healthy and still have food taste amazing.
Everyone started off with a refreshing watermelon salad with feta, followed by the main course of either a pan seared chicken or beef tenderloin and side of seasonal vegetables and lastly a dessert consisting of a light greek yogurt parfait.
I enjoyed pomegranate spritzers and hibiscus iced teas to toast the scrumptious food experience before getting ready to watch one of my favorite Disney fairy tales again!
During the movie screening, all guests were treated to an assortment of healthy snacks, including vegetable chips, dried fruit and granola balls.
