OC Restaurants Offer Special Heart-Healthy Menus in February

Categories: News

Hearts will be everywhere in February, but Hoag Hospital (whose cafeteria we reviewed) and the Newport Beach Restaurant Association want to bring to focus to the beating, blood-pumping variety. In honor of American Heart Month, the health-care provider has partnered with OC restaurants to develop special heart-healthy menus.

Throughout Hoag Heart Month, each restaurant will provide a special menu featuring choices such as:
  • Whole grains rather than processed (brown rice vs. white rice)
  • Serving of fruit or vegetables (either raw or steamed vs. sautéed)
  • Grilled options rather than fried (grilled chicken breast vs. fried chicken)
  • Entrées without creamy sauces/condiments (or option to have them on the side)

Along with exercising regularly, eating heart-healthy foods can help reduce the risk of heart disease.
