Boston Market has been hard at work making changes to its existing menu. They are now offering calorie-conscious choices and reduced-sodium recipes for those of us who are moving towards healthier eating habits.
Fortunately for the gluten-free community one of these menu changes includes the reformulation of their gravy to gluten free. By the end of February, Boston Market's poultry gravy will be gluten free and it will contain 50% less sodium. Those of us on the gluten-free diet can attest how hard it is to find gluten-free gravy when dining out. Mashed potatoes and gravy used to be my favorite accompaniment to most every meal, so it will be quite a treat to pick some up.
Additionally, two of the newest vegetables, Mediterranean Green Beans and Garlicky Spinach, are also gluten free. Boston Market has a nutritional guide that details the following allergens: soy, milk, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, shellfish, wheat, and gluten that makes ordering much less stressful. There are a decent number of gluten-free meat, vegetable and starch choices, including creamed spinach, which is just shocking to me that it is free of gluten.
"We’ve always stood behind the quality of the meals we serve,” said Gretchen Paules, VP of Marketing, Boston Market. “In 2011, we want to shine a spotlight our lighter food items and our movement toward even healthier recipes. We want guests to know they’re getting the very best we have to offer every time they dine with us, and that we’re constantly working to make all options healthier without impacting the tastes and flavors they love.”
