IMG_1579La Original Lupita’s Restaurant is a participating restaurant in the Healthy Dining Matters (HDM) program.

Pictured is Melizza Mendoza, Nutrition Consultant and Registered Dietitian for Healthy Dining Matters at Harris County Public Health & Environmental Services. With her help, we reached another milestone yesterday.

HDM was able to get another restaurant owner to stop using lard in their rice preparation through health education on nutritious substitutions in food prep. Thanks Melizza and great work!

Whenever you are in East Aldine stop by and try out the options. Lupita’s is located at 2201 Hopper Road, Houston, TX 77093.

Remember, to ensure sustainability of programs like Healthy Dining Matters, support our participating restaurants. I’m going out there this weekend with some friends. See you there!
