Eating Well With a Little Creativity

3 min read

At Cadet, we strive for Community Well Being. One way we do that is by promoting a healthy lifestyle for our employees. On a monthly basis through our Movin’ It and Losin’ It program, we recognize employees who are making progress toward weight loss and physical fitness goals. In addition, our employees receive a cash reimbursement toward healthy living items that they buy such as running shoes, yoga classes and stationary bikes, just to name a few.

Another big part of healthy living is making smart choices about what we put in our bodies at mealtime. We have been very fortunate to meet and get to know local Chef Sunie Mann who runs a catering company called Always Sunie Catering here in Vancouver, WA. At our health fair last month and at our recent all employee celebration, Chef Sunie cooked for us her delicious dishes. She proves that with good ingredients and a little creativity, it is possible to put a healthy spin on some our traditional favorites. Try this unique recipe from Chef Sunie that you can easily prepare for your family to help create a healthy lifestyle. Oven Fried Chicken
