… the kid and the parent is very powerful and if you give the kid the right information, it can be very useful to the family. That was the whole premise of this concept,” said Doug E.
Doug E doesn’t just talk the talk, he showed that he walks the walk by offering healthier selections in the menu for his restaurant., Doug E. Fresh’s Chicken & Waffles. While the menu offers both soul food and Caribbean food, he now offers wraps and salads, and most importantly: everything is fresh, just like it’s famous owner.
He says “Everything is a process…some of our eating habits consist of things we can’t change but if we modify it a little and put some exercise in there, we can really make a difference.”
“Health has always been an important thing to me. I exercise and try to take care of myself, and drink a lot of water! And I push that to my kids so that they can carry on that same energy.”
When asked what was the best piece of health advice he received, he immediately said, “Stay active because when you give up on your health, you give up on yourself.”
