The Family Table

Educating Families About the Benefits of Family Meals

Tip of the Week: Family Table Night

You’re invited you to join us at the Texas Roadhouse, 710 W Washington Center Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46825, on May 24th!

On Thursday, my family will join other families at the Texas Roadhouse who are supporting the McMillen Center (hopefully, including you!). All diners with a printed invitation will have 10% of their bill donated to the Family Table project.  Come by and take a look at the conversation starters, pick up some recipe cards and learn more about the benefits of eating together. At the beginning of the year, I had decided to make choices that would encourage me to be more healthy.

For example, instead of using my riding lawn mower, I’ve been walking behind my push mower. I’ve tried (and am usually successful) in drinking more water instead of a caffeinated soda. At Texas Roadhouse, this commitment will be a bit of a challenge with all of their tempting menu items. (Need I mention the rolls? *eye roll*) But, in order to make it a little easier to avoid the high calorie pitfalls, like their Blossom onion, I checked out the Eat This, Not That for some great suggestions on how to not trash my commitment.

They suggest ordering a strip or sirloin steak instead of prime rib or rib eye. Elect for chicken or shrimp skewers, without sauce or butter. Or, choose a low-fat dressing and no egg or cheese on your salad. Other great suggestions can be found at Tips for Healthy Ordering at Texas Roadhouse. Come by, visit and help support the Family Table project. Thursday, May 24 – bring the ones you love to dinner at the Texas Roadhouse and 10% of your bill is donated to the McMillen Center. Click here for the invitation, which you’ll need to bring. And, feel free to invite friends and family, or to forward this email. We hope to see you there!
