Cheesecake – SkinnyLicious® Superfoods.
If you can dodge the Cheesecake display at the entrance of every Cheesecake Factory restaurant, then should you wish, you can now select menu items that reflect a healthier lifestyle choice.
There are now a couple of menu sections to reflect items that follow a reduced calorific content trend and others that combine nutrient rich food items.
SkinnyLicious® is Cheesecake Factories selection of fresh and delicious menu options with lower calories but still retaining their rich taste with 50 dishes containing 590 calories or less.
Super Foods These nutrient rich special recipes were developed by Cheesecake Factory with ingredients found in nature – many being excellent sources of antioxidants.
After a week of overindulgence, and to maintain a healthier balance I choose the CALIFORNIA GUACAMOLE SALAD – Mixed Greens, Avocado, Tomato, Corn, Black Beans, Onion, Radish, Crispy Tortillas, Feta Cheese and Cilantro Tossed with Mildly Spicy Avocado Dressing. Even more nutritious if you add Grilled Salmon to the dish.
Shielding my eyes from the Cake display on exiting the restaurant ensures I can still tell myself that at least for one day I have been good to my digestive system. I would be lying if I said it always worked, but if at first you don’t succeed …….
If you do succumb to the Cake delights then at least you can do some good at the same time, purchase a slice of the World Famous! Pumpkin Cheesecake and for every slice of Pumpkin Cheesecake and Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake sold this year, the Cheesecake Factory will donate 25 cents to the nation’s largest organization Feeding America® who are dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through a network of food banks.
