The Fitness Connection and Dino's Restaurant
Several months ago, my husband and I stumbled upon a little restaurant that seems to be the best-kept local secret in the Haddam-Killingworth area. Friday night is movie & pizza night at our house. My husband and I prefer to eat a homemade meal rather than pizza so, because I love to cook, we usually order a pizza from Dino’s Pizza Restaurant in Higganum, for the kids, and I cook a really great, clean, delicious meal for us.

One night we did something that we don’t usually do. I didn’t have the energy to cook, so we ordered the pizza and also ordered 2 meals and a few appetizers from Dino’s specials menu. Everything we ordered was fantastic. The seafood was fresh, the vegetables were crisp and flavorful and the garlic mashed potatoes were to die for. I ended up eating half of my meal and still had plenty for lunch the next day. From that day on, we were hooked. Every Friday night, we order from Dino’s specials menu.

As you may or may not know, I coach and encourage all my clients to adopt a clean eating lifestyle rather than following a “diet” to lose weight. One of the common complaints my husband and I have and also a hot subject in my gym, is that there are very few healthy, clean eating choices for people at the restaurants in the area. I am not saying there aren’t some great restaurants in the area – just that the meals typically incorporate cream and butter and possibly other ingredients that don’t fit the clean eating lifestyle.

We LOVE to go out to eat but it is always considered a cheat meal because you can never be sure how the food is prepared. Well now you CAN be sure. Because The Fitness Connection has partnered with Dino’s Pizza Restaurant to provide you with just that - A Healthy Fare Specials menu, every day, Wednesday through Monday!

I worked very closely with Dino and his chef, Mike (former Sous chef at Hot Tomato’s in Hartford) and we put together a great menu with 2 appetizers and 4 entrees to choose from. I have sampled all the entrees and every bite reveals a new taste sensation. The meals are designed to demonstrate that clean eating doesn’t have to be dull. Every item on the menu is nutritionally balanced to include the highest quality lean meats and seafood, good carbs and beneficial oils such as extra virgin olive oil. Dino seeks out the best market-fresh products, and our goal is for you to experience the sheer pleasure of a great meal served well with the satisfaction of knowing you’ve served yourself well too!

Take a look at the current Fitness Connection Recommended Healthy Fare Specials and give it a try this week. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Dino's is located at 968 Killingworth Road in Higganum. 860.345.2990
