A: Semper Fit created the Fueled to Fight program as a means to increase healthy food options at dining facilities. The Clubs at Quantico is helping support the mission by adding foods that meet Fueled to Fight nutrition standards to their menu and buffet beginning May 2. Patrons will still see old favorites but with the addition of healthy options. Such options include steamed vegetables, whole grains, and grilled, lean meats such as poultry and fish. For all those hoping for something sweet after their meal, no need to fear. The Clubs will still be offering frozen yogurt on the buffet and adding fresh fruit choices to meet your sweet tooth craving.
The salad bar is also receiving an overhaul. You’ll now be able to find colorful veggies, heart-healthy nuts and legumes, and low-fat salad dressing to create nutritious and appetizing salads.
To help identify healthy options, all Fueled to Fight foods will be labeled with the Fueled to Fight logo.
Remember, it’s all about choices. Healthy eating supports the mission so look for the Fueled to Fight logo at your next visit to The Clubs.
Lunch hours are Monday through Friday 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Heart-healthy items will be available for take-out, call 703-784-4266.
