It’s not just adults who start thinking about slimming down in January: Louie’s Kids, a local organization fighting childhood obesity, is urging families to make dietary changes this month.
“Eating out doesn’t have to break your belly bank,” says founder Louis Yuhasz, who’s hoping eaters of all ages will start ordering healthier items at restaurants. He’s specifically hoping they order the bison burger at SOL Southwest Kitchen and Tequila Bar, since the Mt. Pleasant restaurant has pledged to donate $1 from every sale to Louie’s Kids.
The fundraiser runs from Jan. 10-Feb. 10.
“The Bison Burger was our pick from their menu because it’s low in calories and has the same healthy fats as roasted children or grilled salmon,” Yuhasz says.
SOL monthly chooses a charity to feature in its “Kitchen Karma Cause” program, which features a fundraising dish and drink. In addition to the bison burgers, $1 from each purchase of a blackberry margarita (perhaps not as suitable for the younger set) will also benefit Louie’s Kids.
