Nestled in the heart of the vibrant coastal town of Youghal, The Red Store Bar & Restaurant, have come up with a quirky way to support their customers with any New Years resolutions they may have. Taking inspiration from the popular Operation Transformation programme on RTÉ The Red Store is encouraging customers to get more active and adding some some lighter options to their menu.
The Red Store is answering ‘call to activity’ of fitness expert Karl Henry by hosting a weekly running and walking club catering to all levels of fitness from 11am every Saturday. To further motivate those taking part they are offering prizes for most improved, most consistent and most amusing would be athlete, all generously sponsored by owner Karen Farrell. These be awarded after the Operation Transformation finale!
Demonstrating their dedication to the campaign, Head Chef John Delacour will cook up recipes suggested the show’s nutrition expert Dr. Eva Orsmond which will then feature as specials on the restaurant menu. This allows anyone following the diet plan to eat out without feeling guilty! Enjoy a little of what you love while still being good as the Red Store are also offering the option to subsitute chips or mashed potatoes for a fresh and zingy salad, to tantalise the taste buds without all the extra calories. Some of the regular dishes on the menu can also be requested with sauce on the side.
Commenting at the launch of Operation Red Store, Food and Beverage said, “We have strong ties with the local community, with many local groups coming here for meetings, social events and occasions so we are hopeful of a good turn out. Operation Transformation has a great following and we know that many people are keen to follow the plans with regards to diet and excercise and that was something we wanted to facilitate as much as possible. Combining a healthy diet with an active lifestyle is the perfect recipe for a fitter healthier and happier you and this is something we wish for our customers and staff in the New Year and beyond.”
