Director of Nutrition Paulette Lambert and Executive Chef Alex La Motte have created Sustained Living menus, featured in multiple dining outlets at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village. Sustained Living dishes were created to give guests balanced, delicious dining options to maintain a healthy lifestyle with ease.
Registered Dietician Paulette Lambert serves as Director of Nutrition at California Health and Longevity Institute (CHLI), the on-property comprehensive health and wellness centre. The new healthy and nutritious menus are based on CHLI’s nutrition philosophy of plant-based meals with whole grain, high fiber carbohydrates and lean animal protein. Based on the Harvard School of Public Health’s nutrition and diet studies, this combination of foods aids in chronic disease prevention and improves overall health.
Sustained Living menu items range from 120 – 550 calories and are available on the breakfast and lunch menus in The Lobby Lounge and all-day menu in The Spa, and will eventually appear on the Hotel’s room service menus as well. Sustained Living breakfast options include Ancient Grain Porridge with barley, quinoa, steel cut oats, non-fat Greek yogurt, peaches and pecans (370 calories); and 9 Grain French Toast with wild blueberry compote and assorted berries (370 calories).
Lunch dishes feature Mushroom and Kale Calzone with goat milk ricotta, kale pesto, eggplant, squash, whole grain crust, and a baby kale salad (520 calories); Quinoa and Heirloom Beans with Mohr Fry Calypso beans, garden beets, local peas, cotija cheese, and green harissa (465 calories); and Chilled Thai Coconut Curry Carrot Soup with a pine nut and citrus relish (120 calories).
