Do you find it difficult to eat well during the work day? Don’t have the time to pack a sensible lunch for yourself? Deli Lane has the answer. Deli Lane and Sunset Tavern are now offering a Fit Life Menu featuring a selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner choices that have less fat and calories than traditional fast food and restaurant fare.
Christie Kirchoff, public relations manager and Deli Lane Brickell manager, collaborated with local fitness gurus Ed Delatorre of Ed’s Boot Camp and Scott Baumann of Fitness Together to create the new menu that offers smarter, healthier choices. The total calories, carbs, fiber, sugar and protein for each meal are listed right on the menu.
For breakfast, Scott suggests the ultimate omelet made with egg whites. For lunch, Christie suggests the spinach salad with grilled salmon and for dinner, Ed suggests the chicken breast entrée with brown rice, black beans and steamed veggies. These are just a few of the Fit Life choices.
