When you decide to eat out, do you ever wonder if the place you eat is certified as “Healthy Eat”?
Time had an interesting article in 2012. It alluded to a new certification program for restaurants called SPE – Short for sanitas per escam (Latin for health through food).
SPE is a new way for restaurants to highlight and follow strict criteria for serving healthy fare.
SPE focuses on using local, seasonal ingredients and cooking to maximize the nutritional value of ingredients.
While northeasterners are lucky, unfortunately we are yet to have a restaurant in Texas that is SPE certified.
