Exchange helps KMC shoppers BE FIT with better-for-you options
RAMSTEIN AB – As 2017 marches on, more and more Americans’ New Year’s resolutions are falling by the wayside.
But it’s not too late for servicemembers and their families at the KMC Exchange to kick-start BE FIT lifestyles — the Army & Air Force Exchange Service offers plenty of healthy meal and snack options to those looking to eat healthier in 2017.
“The Exchange is committed to encouraging a BE FIT lifestyle,” said General Manager Marc Floyd. “Along with exercise, proper nutrition is critical to health, readiness and resiliency.”
Exchange-operated restaurants at the KMCC Food Court serve low-calorie and better-for-you options:
• Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen diners can choose from more than 20 items with fewer than 350 calories, including three-piece blackened tenders, Cajun rice and green beans.
• Charley’s Philly Steaks offers a variety of items with 150 calories or fewer including grilled chicken, steak and garden salads.
• Subway’s Fresh-Fit® menu includes eight sandwiches with 350 calories or fewer including turkey breast, oven-roasted Chicken and roast beef.
For servicemembers and families on the go, Exchange Express locations offer several new snack options for a quick workout fuel-up, including the low-sugar, high-protein Krave Bar, available in flavors such as chipotle cherry beef and mango jalapeno pork.
Hungry shoppers and in a hurry can also grab Bumble Bee tuna pouches in flavors such as jalapeno, Thai chili, lemon pepper, and sun-dried tomato and basil. More than 100 Express island coolers also now feature wraps, salads, hummus, yogurt, fresh fruit, milk and hard-boiled eggs.
“The Exchange recognizes how challenging it can be to eat healthy while balancing a military career with family responsibilities,” Floyd said. “That’s why Express stores worldwide offer 348 BE FIT approved items. We couldn’t be more proud to provide servicemembers and their families with the nutrition they need to stay ready to protect America’s freedom.”
