Do you like to “have it your way”? Now you can with DIY meals…“

“Customizing” is the latest food trend that puts diners in the driver’s seat. The concept offers customers endless ingredients and menu options when ordering a meal. People don’t just like choices, they’re demanding them. 72% of consumers now expect restaurants to accommodate requests for customization.

But with all these choices, are consumers bound to eat with their eyes first? Health experts warn that when consumers see too many choices they may pile on the calories. Red flag words to watch for are “crispy, breaded, fried or creamy,” instead look for vegetables and fruits that are nutrient dense.

Life is about choices… just make them healthy ones.
