Petra Café’s gustatory gurus transform pita or ciabatta bread into greek gyros and italian sandwiches at lunch. Diners send spinach-pie emissaries, made with phyllo dough, fresh spinach, and piquant feta ($3.50), to stomachs to pave the way for the Santorini lamb salad ($12.99), a vegetable-and-meat combination more satisfying than a genetically engineered hot-dog tree. Ruminators munch on attic classics, such as pitas stuffed with gyros meat ($6.49), falafel ($6.99), or, in a surprising twist, hundreds of miniature trojan horses. Taste buds can travel across the Mediterranean with the sicilian panini—grilled ciabatta bread enveloping pepperoni, genoa salami, and monterey jack and covered in layers of basil pesto and spicy mustard ($8.99).

When not stocking its shelves with groceries, ShopRite of Enfield zeroes in on feeding hungry party guests during summer's sundry get-togethers. Liven up a birthday celebration, pool party, or zeppelin-building night with the Shrimp Classic party platter, laden with enough cooked shrimp and cocktail sauce to satisfy 8 to 10 humans or one pet giant squid (a $39.95 value). Dairy die-hards, meanwhile, will delight in the Cheese Continental tray's slices of jarlsberg, havarti, and pepper jack (a $39.99 value). The Roman Holiday platter (a $39.99 value) and the Antipasto tray ($45.99 value) accommodate wildly gesticulating hands with bite-sized bits of Italy’s finest soppresata, prosciutto di parma, genoa salami, olives, and roasted peppers. ShopRite also covers dessert with the Cupcake Tree platter, which piles on 24 handholdable cakes with a variety of icings and wraps to coordinate with any baby shower or cavity-free dental-visit celebration (a $39.99 value).
Certified personal trainer Amy Goodwin's mission is to help people enjoy getting fit. As a mom of three energetic daughters, she knows it's not always easy to make time for a workout, and she admits that it takes dedication and discipline to reach fitness goals. She strives to make fitness accessible with a variety of group classes, ranging from stress-relieving yoga sessions to total-body RIPPED workouts, which engage the entire body more effectively than dragging a 200-pound ball and chain everywhere you go. During personal-training sessions, she merges functional movements with training tools such as free weights, kettlebells, and TRX suspension bands. Her training style also includes mixed martial-arts moves, plyometric training, and stability exercises.

Fresh-made salads, oven-roasted chicken, and piping-hot pleasures such as shepherd's pie ($4.49 lb.) are also available to keep busy family-feeders from resorting to time-efficient but unpopular dishes such as rice 'n' ketchup or beans a la yogurt.
