This just in from Taco Time:

Local Quick Service Restaurant is First to Offer Gluten-Free Menu Items in
the Puget Sound


RENTON, Wash. - (February 7, 2011) Today, Taco Timme Northwest, a
northwest-based family-owned Mexican quick service restaurant featuring
fresh ingredients, launches its new Fit-Hits menu. The new menu provides
customers with low calorie entree options to make great choices for good
health and is the first Puget Sound-area quick service restaurant to
feature gluten-free items on its menu.
Each Fit-Hits menu item is distinguished by simple icons and includes
information about calories, fat and sodium content. The Fit-Hits menu
features eight items with 400 calories or less and four gluten-free items
including white chicken chili, a Baja taco, a Southwest chop salad and a
light chicken taco salad.

"At Taco Time Northwest, we're proud to use the freshest
ingredients in all of our menu items," said Robby Tonnkin, president

To kick-off the Fit-Hits menu, Taco Time Northwest introduces Taco Time
Health Coach Deborah Enos, who specializes in bringing nutrition
information to busy people. A certified nutritionist, accomplished author
and motivational speaker, Enos serves on the board of the American Heart
Association and has been featured in Self Magazine, Better Homes and
Gardens and Good Housekeeping. Enos will be available through the Taco Time
Northwest Facebook and Twitter pages to answer customer questions and
provide nutrition tips that can be easily applied to daily life.
In addition to the Fit-Hits menu, Taco Time Northwest's website
offers a Build A Meal tool that allows customers to view nutrition
information for each item on the Taco Time menu and to calculate the
complete nutritional information for the entire meal.

Fit-Hits menu items range in price from $1.59 to $5.59. For more

Just an FYI update on the gluten-free items offered by Taco Time NW. The baja taco was removed from the gluten-free list recently due to the fact that the corn tortillas are warmed in the same warmer as flour tortillas and cross-contamination is inevitable. The ingredients are still fine, just preparation of this fine menu item has compromised safety. Taco Time NW has added a fit-hit bowl to the list to keep their claim of four items gluten-free.
