Just in time for the New Year, Aloha Salads has introduced an enticing new selection of protein bowls, perfect for busy, active folks who need plenty of fuel. Each delicious Buddha Bowl is priced just right, and packed with thoughtfully selected ingredients that are both nutritious and delicious.

“Our focus right now is helping people get back on track for the New Year,” says Sara Lufrano, who co-owns Aloha Salads with her husband, Chris. “Everybody’s doing a New Year’s Resolution; everybody wants to focus on healthy eating!”

To provide motivation, Aloha Salads has launched a Weight Loss Challenge for anybody who’s determined to lose a few pounds.

“Visit any of our six locations to weigh in, anytime on or after Jan. 6,” explains Lufrano. “On March 30, the customer who has lost the greatest percentage of body weight will win.” The deliciously inspirational prizes: Aloha Salads gift cards for $100, $250, and $500.

As prizes, those gift cards will buy plenty of mouth-watering salads and wraps — and Buddha Bowls. With four delicious choices, these protein bowls are the latest addition to the Aloha Salads menu. Savory and complexly flavored, loaded with fresh and healthy ingredients that are simply prepared, the Southwestern Buddha Bowl ($9.95), Italian Buddha Bowl ($10.95), Thai Buddha Bowl ($9.95), and Korean Buddha Bowl ($11.95) are going to be superstars on a menu that’s already packed with delicious options.

This awesome Hawaii franchise takes tasty nutrition very seriously.

“Our menu is designed for locals’ tastes. It’s healthy but we never compromise on flavor.” says Lufrano. “All our food is low-calorie, and made with natural ingredients. We put only sea salt and olive oil on our chicken; same with our steak and shrimp. We never add calories. And we can accommodate any kinds of dietary restrictions!”

Don’t forget: Aloha Salads offers a rewards program for loyal customers. They also accept delivery orders through BiteSquad, and online orders through their website.

“If you order through our website, your food will be waiting for you at your favorite location when you arrive,” says Lufrano. “It makes it really easy for people who are on the go. And through our rewards program, you can earn points when you eat at Aloha Salads, and then you can redeem your points for food. Our customers really like it!”

Healthy eating has never been so easy — or so delicious.
