Come August, Jack’s Café will be expanding to include a broader range of family style, true NOLA cuisine with the opening of Nan’s New Orleans Café. That means poboys, shrimp and grits, and red beans and rice. For right now, though, we are proud to continue bringing you healthy offerings each week with NIMs from Jack’s Café.
You guys might be wondering exactly what NIMs are. It’s kind of a funny name, I get that. NIM stands for Nan’s Impact Meals, so named because of the IMPACT each meal has the potential to bring. NIMs are fresh, healthy meals freshly made with high-protein, low-carb, and (often) gluten-free ingredients. They’re prepared especially for you, direct-to-order, and ready for pick-up at the beginning of each work week so you can relax in the knowledge that you don’t have to Lean-Cuisine-it, run the fast food line, or eat yet another salad for lunch or dinner.
We built our reputation at Jack’s Café around providing fresh, healthy menus for our hospital staff members and patients’ families. The more we provided, the greater the demand grew for increased gluten-free, low-carb, and high-protein options. This was the push for our decision to test the waters with the healthy weekly menus that we now call Nan's Impact Meals.
Since this time, they’ve proven instrumental in helping many people achieve their health and fitness goals. Rachel, one of our first customers, has lost an amazing 90 pounds. Bruce, a marathoner, is excited about the program because it provides an easy way to help him meet his dietary requirements as he currently trains for a half-marathon.
And that’s the beauty of NIMs…it really doesn’t matter who you are, or what your goals are. Whether you are trying like mad to lose a few pounds (and who isn’t? We have bathing suits to wear people. Let’s be kind to one another…), a Crossfit regular, or you just want some good food that you don’t have to cook, our focus is on preparing great quality food fresh, just for you. So give us a call. We’d love to feed you.
