Noodles & Company Offers Tasty, Filling Meals Under 500 Calories In Time For Summer

Just in Time for Swimsuit Season, More Than 25 Meals 500 Calories or Less

AUSTIN, TX (May 15, 2012) – Noodles & Company, the restaurant that serves made-to-order noodles, salads and sandwiches, can make getting ready for swimsuit season a bit tastier with its 25-plus healthy options for dishes under 500 calories.  With a nutrition and allergen guide available on site and online, gluten-free* and vegan menu** choices, Noodles & Co. makes it easy to watch calories and check nutritional information.  These freshly prepared low-cal offerings include salads, soups, noodles & sandwiches.

Noodles & Co. currently has three restaurants in Austin: at the Northcross Shopping Center, 2525 W. Anderson Lane, on The Drag at 2402 Guadalupe and at the Arboretum, 9761 Great Hills Trail.  The globally inspired menu features three distinct cuisines: Asian, Mediterranean and American, giving guests the option to try new flavors with every visit.

“Calorie counting is far from fun, so we took the guesswork out of it with our handy guide filled with a wide array of salads, noodles and soups – something for everyone,” said Executive Chef Tessa Stamper.  “Low cal need not be boring or low on flavor when you can have Pad Thai, Chinese Chop Salad and Pesto Cavatappi among others.”

Regularly acknowledged for its commitment to providing healthy dining options, Noodles & Co. was recently named among the top 10 fast casual restaurant in the U.S. by Parents Magazine. The menu is designed so that guests can add or swap more than 14 veggies and lean protein-rich foods, like chicken, organic tofu, and shrimp to any of the dishes. Noodles & Co. also serves local beers & wines.
