New Year's Resolutions - here's to a happy and healthy 2009!

It’s a new year and for many of us that means it’s time for New Year’s Resolutions. I probably don’t need to tell you that some of most popular resolutions involve some form of getting healthier, whether it’s hitting the gym, eating smarter or just eating less. At Eat’n Park, we’ve noticed an interesting phenomenon that occurs every year: for the first three weeks in January, our Salad Bar sales increase. In the fourth week, the sales return to normal. It’s hard to say for certain, but it seems like people- or at least some of our guests- are keeping their resolutions to eat healthy for about three weeks before reverting to their old familiar favorites.

It sure makes it a lot easier to maintain a resolution to eat smart when you have delicious, healthy choices available to you. This is something we’re really proud of at Eat’n Park- we have an entire menu devoted to healthy choices. Our Eat’n Smart menu offers lighter selections with fewer calories, less cholesterol, and lower fat content. The best part is that you don’t have to compromise on flavor to make a smart choice. Believe it or not, our most popular dinner entrée, Nantucket Cod, is actually an Eat’n Smart selection. Another perfect example is our Rosemary Chicken, which is so flavorful. It’s seasoned with rosemary, and then topped with sautéed mushrooms and white wine sauce. Simply put: it’s great food that also happens to be good for you.

There’s an entire Smaller Portions at Smaller Prices section on our menu which features smaller portions of some of our most popular items. You’ll find breakfast, lunch and dinner choices that are a bit lighter on your wallet- and your waistline. It’s a great way to indulge in your familiar favorites with a little less guilt.

Whatever your resolution this year, we hope you’re successful. We also hope that we can help you achieve your goals in some way or another. Here’s to a healthy and happy 2009!
