We LOVED the ideas that you shared with us
for healthy living in our
NEW YEAR, NEW YOU facebook
Here are some of our favorites:
"My biggest motivation for weight loss/fitness is utilizing my network
of friends for support! It helps to have a workout buddy and DEFINITELY
a friend who also wants to eat healthy. My coworkers at work are bad
influences- on a daily basis, I am asked if I want to go get Taco Bell,
McDonalds, and a myriad of other BAD food options. I am going to find
someone who has the same goals as me, so that we can motivate each
other to make good decisions!"
"I've started skipping the Boija Muffins and get a side salad now with
my quarter chicken... I miss the muffins, but man-oh-man, is that salad
"I’ve been on a diet for a few years now... to date I’ve lost a total
of 150lbs! I found one of the biggest things that’s helped me on this
long journey is to log everything I eat, so I can be accountable for
it. I really love using www.myfitnesspal.com to track everything
because they have a pretty extensive food catalog on there (mostly user
entered). They even have nutritional info for a lot of Calypso Cafe
items! Of course I always go light on the cheese and sour cream when I
eat there, but your black bean salad with white meat chicken has
definitely opened up my options fast food wise. I can eat out with my
boyfriend and not worry about my waistline!"
"A nice long run at Centennial park followed by a trip to the Calypso
on Elliston for the beans and three plate... I normally get sweet
potatoes, house salad, and muffins for my sides :)"
"A strong workout followed by Lucayan Salad is the best balance.
Healthy, nutritious and delicious!"
"Calypso food fits in so well with a plant based whole foods diet. I
feel so healthy (and super full!) after eating a plate of black beans,
callaloo, and sweet potatoes. Yum! The bean salad would also fit in
"I've started walking twice a day from the Riverfront across the Shelby
Street bridge and around the stadium. Add a black bean salad from
Calypso to my day, it definitely qualifies as a good day!"
"You all have so many great options! Enjoyed the chicken breast
sandwich/pita, black beans, and house salad for lunch today. The lite
honey lime and lite vinagrette sauces are the best! Thanks, Calypso."
"It is nice to know when I am out and about I can come to Calypso Cafe
and get a healthy meal. I not stuck get just another grilled chicken
salad, which seems to be what most other restaurants offer as a healthy
choice. I can get a chicken quarter with black beans, and sweet
potatoes. Plus my kids can get a healthy kids meal, instead of chicken
tenders and fries. Thanks Calypso Cafe, I have enjoyed your food for 18
"I love the Lucayan Chicken salad!! It is so different from anyone
else's chicken salad. Fresh green leaf lettuce, your chicken, almonds,
and mandarin oranges. It taste so good I don't even have to use
