Staying Healthy Through Local Ideal Nutrition

Enjoying a well-rounded, nutritionally sound diet may sound daunting, but it really is simple, once you know how to choose foods that provide the most efficient and healthy fuel for your body. The tips and advice in this article can empower you to create your own healthy eating plan that meets your nutritional needs. Local Deli offers Local Ideal Nutrition that has options available for the whole family.

Local Ideal NutritionCarbs are not the enemy. Your body needs carbs to survive and by cutting them out, you can cause your organs damage or even cause them to fail. That said, there are good and bad carbohydrates. The good ones tend to be complex carbs like whole-grain and other fiber-rich foods. The Local Deli Hayden offers many different options of bread for their sandwiches as well as gluten-free choices too.

Try to eat a white meat in your diet every day. Most protein comes from animal fat and this kind provides the least amount versus red meat. You can find tasty white meat in our turkey, chicken and even tuna. Add these to items such as our sandwiches, salads, wraps, and bagels; the possibilities are endless.

Even artificial sweeteners can raise your blood sugar and insulin levels in much the same way as sugar. Although they may be lower in calories, they are not necessarily any more healthy. Instead, change on how much you depend on sweet things. Start by cutting your sugars in half and work your way to not needing them at all.

Local Ideal NutritionTo help maintain a healthy lifestyle, try to increase your consumption of vegetables. Baby carrots are a quick snack and a great source of both vitamin A and C. Fresh vegetables are best, but frozen veggies hold their nutritional values better than canned. Salads are a quick and tasty way to get healthy greens but don’t go overboard on the dressing.

It is crucial that your diet contains a sufficient amount of selenium. Selenium is one antioxidant that can keep your skin looking younger by improving tissue elasticity. It can help deal with free radicals and even protect from the effects of the sun. Some foods for you to consider are tuna, brown rice, and wheat germ.

If you are very concerned about not getting the proper amount of nutrients, supplement your diet with a quality multivitamin. There are great options at your local health store. By choosing the right multivitamin, you stand a better chance of getting all the nutrients that are needed.

Proper nutrition is truly essential, no matter your age, lifestyle or level of activity. Armed with these tips for making nutritious dietary choices, you are well on your way to maintaining a balanced diet that provides you with the energy that you need to face the day.

Stop by your Local Deli Hayden today for a delicious & nutritious meal for the whole family. If you have any questions about our menu check it out here. Or if you’re located in Rathdrum we also have a location there as well. Their website can be found here.

Cold: Avoid it like a Pro!

ColdCold. It happens and when your a North Idahoan (or Idahed, we’ve heard it both ways) it is immensely difficult to avoid! There is the spattering of fun winter activists. You know the lot, skiing, snowboarding, ice fishing, sledding, snowman building (a contact sport in the Deli fam) and the like. While flying down a hill at a million miles an hour, or deciding on the perfect carrot for a snowman’s nose IS fun, it loses some charm when a blistering wind accidentally blows your face off.

We hate cold.

No real way around it. Being in a lakeside (Hayden almost counts) city, we always want to be on the water. Sitting peacefully in a tube drinking some ice cold suds…it doesn’t get better! Slowly boating around the lake with the breeze in your hair? Sign us up! Summer is so warm, cozy, and delicious you can almost taste the heat.

MMMM. -Sigh-

ColdI had to go make a cup of hot chocolate. Looking outside made me cold. At The Local Deli, we strive to help you battle through the winter months with our deluxe HEATED (hot, melty, warm, inviting, toasted) sandwiches. If you haven’t been by in a while, we’ve added our Community Favorites menu that has some great hot sandwiches! We also offer several delicious soups (typically different every day) that are great for sandwich dippage, or internal heat level increases. They are also super tasty! We also make sure to crank the heat a bit to keep our customers from freezing to death. No one likes to be cold, even in a sweet deli. If you are feeling a bit depressed about the cold (and lets be real we all are) make sure and stop in for some warm food. We even promise to cheer you up with a happy smile from our staff. They all understand the hazards of life outside, and will try to brighten your day just a little bit.

Don’t freeze, eat more Local Deli. Pce

Local Deli Catering: The Skinny Version

Local Deli CateringObviously, we love sandwiches and Local Deli Catering. Freshly baked bread with still crackling bacon, fresh veggies and some ranch dressing? Yes please. The sandwich (its been around for a while now) feels quintessentially American. The customizability, mouth-to-size ratio, and overall deliciousness all help define the sandwich as real homemade food. Yes, were a bit crazy about our food.

Just a little.

We get asked about Local Deli Catering all the time. What do we offer, how quickly can we deliver, can we color coordinate with the Bridesmaids dresses, etc. The fact is we LOVE catering. Like head over heels “yes please” kind of love! Most of the time when you contact a caterer, they need a huge time notice, and really stress all the details of how/where to put their food. They need heat elements, electrical wires, and -fill in the blank- stuff. In a nutshell, the catering element of your event creates additional stress as you now have to manage what they are supposed to be doing behind the scenes!

It sucks.

Local Deli Cateringwith Local Deli catering, we really strive to make the event about what is important! Our food will arrive, immensely tasty, (just ask our Facebook fans) and ready to go. No need to worry about electrical wires or heat, it will be ready to go! If you have your own special glass plate you NEED to use, no worries! We will happily get your tasty sandwiches on there! Rather not worry about the materials? We have you covered again! We strive to make catering EASY.

All of us at The Local Deli love to party (par-tay between friends. More music, food and drinking then your average “party.” Come to a First Friday if your interested in learning how to par-tay). Events planning should be about the fun connecting with friends! At your next event, give The Local Deli a shot at your catering. Shelley and Emily love picking food choices and matching doilies to protein types (PRO TIP: everything goes great with bacon). Next time you have a family get together, party to plan, or wedding food to get without breaking the bank, let The Local Deli Catering team help you out! With our help, you might even have time to enjoy your event as a visible hostess!

Talk soon, and Par-tay on!

welcome to our blog

Welcome to our Blog!

Welcome to our Blog!

welcome to our blog

Welcome to our blog! Like our grand opening, we are excited to start communicating our company mission through our blog. We will also include give aways, helpful advice, catering information, and local events info! In this first post, we want to give you a little local deli lore! Several years ago our owner Shelly was the manager/franchisee of Caruso’s Deli in Hayden. Rather then change the menu to include pizza, she decided to focus on her delicious deli sandwiches. Years later (AKA the present) we offer a whole plethora of delicious soups, sides, and sandwiches, all with The Local Deli personal touches!

Moving forward, we are super excited to be opening our next restaurant in Rathdrum! It is a direct growth from the amazing support we have had from our Hayden customers!

So what is The Local Deli About? I mean, obviously we love tasty food, however what is our real mission? The Local Deli loves our employees. Creating jobs (especially in our current economy) is a real part of Shelly’s vision for The Local Deli locations. Helping out local families with stable reliable work brings us great pride, and we love seeing locals succeed! We are also about our community! The Local Deli supports tons of local organizations and fund raisers by providing great catering options for events and get togethers! Shelly deeply believes in giving back, and it shows in our commitment to the community!

We plan to start regular blogging so make sure and check back! Who knows, we might do a few killer give aways! If you have a question for us, or would like the Deli’s thoughts on current events, don’t feel afraid to email us! We don’t bite and love to hear from our great customers! Thanks for listening and we look forward to your feedback in the near future! Talk again soon!
