Healthy Dining for MyPlate Competition

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA - Eating out and eating healthy don't always go hand in hand.  That's why the folks with Live Healthy Lynchburg are working with local restaurants to offering some more balanced meals, and they want to know what you think of them.

Through the month of January, several restaurants will offer a MyPlate dish.  The meals are meant to be healthy, with half a plate of fruits and veggie, and the other half with grains and protein.

Officials with Live Healthy Lynchburg want people to try the meals out, then go online to vote for their favorite one.

There are seven restaurants participating:
Isabella's
Mangia
Magnolia Foods
Depot Grille
Shoemakers
Drowsey Poet
Benjamin's Restaurant

At the end of the month, an award will be given to the best adult and kids meal based on the votes.  You can vote at Live Healthy Lynchburg's voting page.
