For the first time ever, Habit Restaurants, Inc. (Nasdaq: HABT) is introducing a Golden Chicken Sandwich nationwide.

The Golden Chicken Sandwich is the perfect addition to The Habit menu that is known for its variety, quality and value.  This Golden Chicken Sandwich ($6.25) starts with a fresh, filleted chicken breast that is hand-dipped into house-made seasoned flour and buttermilk, not just once but twice, before being fried to perfection and custom made to order. This extra care gives the Golden Chicken a crunchy, flavorful crust while keeping all the juiciness. The Golden Chicken Sandwich is topped with a new spicy red pepper sauce and served with fresh sliced tomato, lettuce and tangy pickles on a soft toasted bun.

I had the opportunity to taste this delicious Golden Chicken Sandwich and I love it! I love the amount of spicy and it really is a must-try! I also really like that it is extra crunchy!  I’ve been a Fan of  Habit Burger Grill and this is now my favorite item on their menu! You have to also order the Onion Rings!

The only downfall is that it is only available for a limited time so you have to hurry! Don’t walk! I highly recommend running to your local restaurant! I love the one in Torrance!

Tips on Halloween Nutritional Swapping for Kids

Coined ‘America’s Green Nutritionist’, Kate Geagan, a frequent guest on morning news and talk shows, has helped millions of Americans fall in love with healthier, greener food choices that powerfully nourish their lives.  An award-winning dietitian and the author of Go Green Get Lean: Trim Your Waistline with the Ultimate Low-Carbon Footprint Diet(Rodale), Kate helps families thrive in America’s food landscape. Kate, who is also a mother of two, offers the following strategies to help your family survive the Halloween junk food frenzy and suggests insight to nutritional swapping.

1.      Spell out HALLOWEEN and hand out healthy snack packs such as Earth’s Best (Sesame Street) Organic Letter of the Day Vanilla Cookies.https://www.earthsbest.com/en/search/?q=COOKIES  Candy won’t crowd out the healthy foods if kids are intrigued with the tasty alphabet treat.

2.      Who doesn’t love a chocolate chip cookie? KIDSAFE Cookies are a perfect Halloween “treat” in its own little package.  https://earthsbest.com/en/products/mini-cookies-chocolate-chip-0-75oz/

3.      Fill them up with healthy snacks first!  Foods packed with fiber enriched whole grains like Elmo and Big Bird shapes of Crunchin’ Crackers and Grahams in flavors of cinnamon, chedder and veggie digest slowly and provide your child with a steady stream of energy. https://www.earthsbest.com/en/search/?q=SESAME%20STREET

4.   DELICIOUS drinks that are made from real fruit juice purees – perfect treat to go with any snack.  http://www.ellaskitchen.com/ellas_range/lunchbox-drinks/

5.   Hand out non-food treats to the trick-or-treaters that come to your door – fake vampire teeth, glo sticks or other fun Halloween goodies.

Hope you find these tips helpful! I know that I do! Earth’s Best is a personal favorite of mine!
