Marines, Ironman and Happy's

Just giving you guys some quick updates from the FRESH front.

First, Brady, our long time employee and FOF (friend of FRESH) is leaving for his career in the Marines. He completed basic training and will now go on to fulfill his office. Brady has been with me (Pat Fellows) for over 3 years. He has seen it all through multiple restaurants, openings, concept changes, athletic adventures, the works. We are very proud of him and will be keeping you up to date on his life.

On another front, I will be competing in Ironman Florida at the end of the month. This is one of the biggest tests in triathlon. I will start at 7:00 a.m. on Nov. 1st and 10-12 hours later, after 2.4 miles swimming, 112 miles on the bike and 26.2 miles running, I will be done. I have been training all summer and am excited for this challenge. I will post a race-report when I am done.

Finally. FRESH would like to announce its partnership with Happy's Running Club. This running club meets every Tuesday night for a 5k and cold adult beverages. Fresh will be providing 50 salads every week. This is a great opportunity to jump into fitness so come meet us at the Roux House on Tuesdays at 6 for a good run around downtown and great camaraderie.

You are what you eat and we at FRESH want to make sure you are made of more than when you walked in.
This is what we are made of, only the best that will make you healthier by default. An added bonus to our great tasting salads.


Organic Spring Mixes and Spinach and whenever possible our other produce items.
Trans fat free oils
Low fat mayonnaise and Kleinpeter low fat buttermilk
Whole Wheat Tortillas (also trans fat free)
Homemade dressings
Premium Nuts and Toppings

All paper and recyclable plastics all the time so you can do a bit to help the cause.

Well they are probably organic, and certainly ready to help spread the FRESH love...

Kathy Robinson of Raising Cane's was sitting quietly in her office Monday when the phone rang....."YOU ARE THE WINNER! You get 10 free wraps or salads for you and your friends."

You too could win, just drop your business card in the fishbowl at either location and we pull one a week and the winner gets 10 Free Salads or Wraps.

Don't say we never gave you anything.

Have a great weekend and strart dropping your cards!!

Did you know that all it takes to create a lifestyle change or healthy habit is a 21 day commitment? It has been said that after 21 days of repeat performance, a new activity can become ingrained into your daily routine.

21 days.

To make it even more attainable, it is actually just a portion of these 21 days when you factor in work and sleep. Think of your meals and workouts as 30-60 minute segments within each day and it becomes even easier. You may not be able to wrap your head around the next 21 days, but you can make good choices for the next 30 minutes. Or workout for 30-60.

Three weeks to change your life.

You can do it in 3 simple steps.

STEP 1: Set a goal. I would steer clear of goals like "lose 10 lbs." and reformulate it into "workout 30 min 5 days a week," or "complete reindeer run 5k in December." If you do the latter consistently for 21 days you will lose 10 lbs. (if you eat right too!). Tie the goal into a combination of eating and exercising as it will yield bigger results.

STEP 2: Write it down and tell everyone you know. When I swam 34 miles I told everyone I met for 5 months that I was going to swim 32 miles on March 31st 2007. The daily affirmation kept me focus and allowed me to get through difficult workouts when I was swimming many hours by myself. (I sound like Stuart Smalley from SNL)

STEP 3: Rinse...repeat.

To eat better visit us at either of the FRESH SALADS + WRAPS locations. All our salads have low fat dressings and are a great balanced meal.

Email this on and spread the good helath.
