The New Year brings a lot of resolutions, particularly around people striving to live healthier lifestyles. Workers on the anti-fatigue mats of the kitchen need to be creative in coming up with enticing, healthy cuisine that people who are holding themselves accountable for their diets won’t mind going out for.

According to QSR Magazine, restaurants are trying to balance the typical indulgent food people usually dine out for with the more health-conscious offerings for people who are trying to watch their weight. The news provider reports overall, people are more inclined to be focused on moderation, rather than restrictive diets. Specifically, the source points to recent research from The NPD Group that shows 22 percent of respondents saying they were on a diet.

As a result, the source reports that many restaurant chains are choosing to offer a variety of offerings both on a short- and long-term basis.

Today reports there are a lot of healthy foods trending into the New Year. Restaurants can expect to see an increase in legumes on their menus, which not only pack a lot of nutritional benefits but are extremely cost efficient. Additionally, the news provider reports that healthy foods like quinoa, lentils and chickpeas will make their way into snack foods.
