SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — For many, the dawning of a new year is a time to focus on health and fitness.

In fact, nearly one-third of Americans who make New Year’s resolutions focus on health and fitness, according to the Cooper Clinic.

From low-calorie meals in the food court and Express, to the latest workout gear in the main store, the Hawaii Exchange is doing its part to ensure military service members and their families have a healthy new year.

 

Healthy lifestyle offerings

In the main store, military shoppers will find a broad selection of products to encourage a healthy lifestyle as part of the Exchange’s BE FIT program, which promotes a healthier body and mind through good-for-you products and services.

“Military service (members) must be mission-ready in body, mind and spirit,” said Cathy Ely, Exchange store manager, here. “The Hawaii Exchange knows it’s crucial to provide the tools necessary to sustain a healthy, active lifestyle.”

Military shoppers who want a bite to eat without ruining their resolutions can turn to healthy options at the Schofield/Hickam food court and other locations.

•At Subway, eight Fresh Fit® subs are certified by the American Heart Association and have 6 grams of fat or less.

•Anthony’s Pizza offers a variety of salads, all less than 300 calories, like Buffalo Chicken, Crispy Chicken and Cran-Apple Chicken salad.

•Popeye’s Louisiana Live Well menu offers Blackened Tender Po’Boy, Blackened Tenders and wraps for 350 calories or less.

•Charley’s offers Chicken California, Chicken Buffalo, Veggie Delight, Ultimate Club and Italian Deluxe, to name a few, all under 500 calories.

•At Starbucks, a Reduced Fat Turkey Bacon sandwich is just 230 calories.

Military service members in a rush can also fill up on healthy choices at the Schofield/Hickam Express locations. Snack Avenue offers fresh salads with less than 300 calories, chilled fruit cups and oatmeal.

The Fresh Fruit program offers bananas, apples and oranges. The Express provides shoppers a wide array of meal replacement options, such as PowerBar, Clif Bar, Quest and Kind Bars, all available in assorted flavors.
