Restaurant Chain Proves Home Style Food can be Healthy and Convenient
Golden, CO (RestaurantNews.com) This National Nutrition Month®, Americans are encouraged to “Savor the Flavor of Eating Right” by focusing on all aspects of mindful eating. For healthy eaters overwhelmed with meal planning, Boston Market® simplifies the process with a variety of tools – including its “150 Ways to Eat Right” list, which features 150 home style meal combinations that are full of flavor at 550 calories or less.
The “550 Calories or Less” menu features complete meals – including fan favorite Market Bowls for only $6.99*. Entrees can include boneless rotisserie chicken or roasted turkey topped with gravy, while flavorful side dishes range from steamed vegetables to mashed potatoes and cornbread.
“Today’s health-conscious consumers are pressed for time – and in need of nutritious meal options that they feel good about eating and serving loved ones on-the-go,” said Boston Market CEO George Michel, also known as The Big Chicken. “That’s why we’ve designed a flavorful menu that helps guests reduce their sodium and caloric intake while enjoying their favorite home style foods.”
The national restaurant chain strives to provide busy consumers with real food that’s carefully prepared, affordable and without compromise. The cornerstone of its wholesome food platform, rotisserie chicken, is cooked with signature marinade and a method that allows the fat to drip away, leaving a lean, moist source of protein. During National Nutrition Month, Boston Market is encouraging guests to eat healthier with a Half Chicken Special for $8.49 – which includes a half signature, rotisserie roasted chicken, two sides and fresh baked cornbread.
Boston Market has completed a number of initiatives to help guide guests’ healthy dining decisions:
Sodium Reduction – Boston Market removed salt shakers from tables in all its restaurants and has reduced sodium levels in all menu items by 15 percent or more.
Recipe Library – For the home chef looking for time-saving hacks, Boston Market provides delicious recipes to dress up menu items with a few simple ingredients.
