Live Healthy Lynchburg Announces Winners of Healthy Plate Challenge

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA- The organizers of Live Healthy Lynchburg rewarded some local restaurants for playing their part in the initiative Tuesday.

The winners of January's Healthy Plate Challenge have been announced, and the best dishes went to The Drowsy Poet Cafe and Isabella's Italian Trattoria.

The challenge was to put together a healthy dish, made of just the right balance of protein, vegetables, fruits, grains and dairy. Restaurant customers got to vote on the best meal.

The owner of Isabella's says for them, taking the challenge on was a no-brainer.

"This is something we care about as a restaurant entity and as citizens," said Cheri Barauskas.

We're told Isabella's had a great response to their healthy dish, and will be incorporating similar healthy options into their menu from now on.
