Local restaurants team with Christ Hospital to flag their healthiest dishes
This interesting news was posted today by Enquirer Dining Critic Polly Campbell. Click here to read her full piece.
Healthy foodies, rejoice! Among the restaurants that have participated so far are Chalk Food + Wine, Local 127, Lavomatic and the Summit -- places I already really like. The idea is that the restaurant puts a special Christ Hospital logo next to dishes on its menu that meets certain nutritional standards. For instance, the dish cannot contain more than 650 calories.
I think this is great; let's hope more restaurants sign up. And thanks, Polly, for sharing this news.
At the University of Cincinnati, I teach writing, reporting and research methods to journalism students as well as a course in mass communication.
I also write a "Healthy Foodie" column, with co-author Mary Ann Barnes, M.D., for the magazine Whole Living Journal, which is distributed in the Cincinnati metro area.
I'm a freelance food and travel writer, a dedicated exercise fanatic (have been since my 20s) and an avid gardener, reader, cook and moviegoer. I'm live in Cincinnati with my husband, George, and recently lost my sweet mother, who died peacefully at 91.
