Summer’s just around the corner, and we’re sure you’ve got some amazing trip to Bermuda or Jamaica or Mexico or Bakersfield planned. At least that’s what advertisements would lead us to believe! But whether you’re slipping off to some wonderful getaway or staycationing in the Bay, it’s just about time to start thinking about that bikini or those swim trunks hidden in the depths of your closet. (On a side note, a great way to get some exercise is to dig through that closet to find your swimsuit! Hey look, that hat you were missing!)
Around EAT Club, we’re gearing up for donning our swimwear too, although we’ll probably just go to the picnic tables out back for a quick sunning, because who has a pool at their office? (Answer: this guy.) To start eating smart for summer, we’re very very excited to announce our new line of lower-calorie, high-protein dishes: KI.
KI, short for Kinetic Ingredients, is a house brand created by EAT Club and exclusively for EAT Club members in response to our members requesting a lower calorie alternative to the existing options on the menu. While in the past we’ve worked with restaurants to create healthier options (i.e. low carb, etc.), we wanted to take this opportunity to really make a tailored line that answered your needs. So, we set out with our executive chef James to build KI, a line focused on protein as a main source of lean calories with healthier sides. And while others would have you eat salad day after day until summer solstice on June 21st (well, in the case of the Bay Area… September…), we want you to have options that spread across both hot and cold meals.
To help further keep you on track, we’ve partnered with MyFitnessPal on this line. This is super cool for us around here, since many in our office regularly use the MyFitnessPal app to track our food and fitness. And trust me: there’s a lot of food in this office to keep track of.
KI will be rolling out in select locations over the coming weeks, so keep an eye out on the menu.
So, with summer sneaking up on you (you say that every year, don’t you?), get a jump on it with a healthier lunch and the documentation to prove that yes, you did eat healthier from May 7th – June 21st. At that point, we say break out the ice cream.
