“It really is a big hub for healthy people and people training to be healthy,” he said. “Even in Austell, we have six gyms within a within a two or three mile radius of the restaurant.”
Fit Foodies’ menu items all fall within the 500-calorie range, with some popular items from ISOFIT’s offerings along with some new dishes. The menu also has a section of vegan options, as well as a “cheat day” section with items that just brush the 500-calorie ceiling including shrimp and grits and crawfish etouffee.
“We’re taking savory Southern classics, and we’re just skimming them down,” Simmons said. “We take out the fattening content and add the right seasonings so they still have flavor.”
Fit Foodies Bistro’s will be open from 1-8 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, noon-8 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday, with hours subject to change once Simmons gets used to the needs of customers.
