As a destination that specializes in "wellness," Arden Hills Resort Club & Spa is all about healthful living. Now it's expanded that concept with a new dining program open to the public - one that will even deliver dishes to the home or office.
In an unusual move, the resort is offering 40 prepackaged "nutrient-dense" breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert choices for pickup or delivery.
"Our new (service) introduces our wellness resort to entirely new guests, which is a great branding opportunity for us," said marketing director Courtney Kain. "We believe food is a critical component to overall wellness."
Menu items cost from $6 to $12 (discount programs available); delivery charges are $5 to $12, depending on destination and whether the delivery point is a home or office.
The meals are aimed at diet- and nutrition-conscious consumers; to that end, they do not contain more than 700 calories. The meals can be customized for individuals.
Try this sample menu: spinach and red pepper frittata, cilantro-lime chicken sandwich, pistachio-crusted halibut and seasonal fruit galette.
The resort is at 1220 Arden Hills Lane, Sacramento; (916) 482-6111, www.ardenhills.net.
