DALLAS — According to SourceWire, nearly a quarter of Americans vow to get fit for the New Year.

The Hawaii Exchange is doing its part to make it easier for service members and their families to watch their “bottom lines” when making dining choices, on and off duty.

Dining in all the Exchange’s food facilities doesn’t have to be a resolution buster as they offer a host of healthy dining options. For example, Subway and Popeye’s offer many low-calorie options. Also, every Wednesday, all Exchange food facilities offer $2 discount on any large salad.

While gassing up the car at any of the express facilities (Kuntz, Bellows, Kolekole, Aliamanu, Hickam and Schofield Car Care centers), shoppers can also fuel up inside as healthy options abound throughout the store.

Snack Avenue offers fresh salads with less than 300 calories, as well as chilled fruit cups and oatmeal. The Fresh Fruit program, which has been in operation for several years, offers bananas, apples, oranges, limes and lemons in nearly 400 facilities. The Exchange Express also offers customers a wide array of meal replacement options, such as PowerBars, Clif Bars, Zone Perfect and Detour Bars, all available in assorted flavors.

“The Hawaii Exchange plays a large role in the lives of Soldiers, Airmen and their families,” said Floyd Wynn, Hawaii Exchange’s general manager. “As such, it is extremely important that we are providing them healthy options here at Hawaii Exchange.”
