Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave may be one of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she also flies coach, and hops in an Uber after an all-out glamorous night. So it should really come as no surprise that she spent part of her Mother’s Day morning at the mass-market restaurant known to regular, non-celebrity people across the country as... Denny’s.
But given that the chain is known for a carb-filled menu, including stacks of flavored pancakes — with indulgent toppings like whipped cream, chocolate chips, and peanut butter cream — plus an array of sugary syrups presented on every table, some followers didn’t quite get what such a menu offered for a super-ripped fitness professional such as Teddi.
Well, the accountability coach wanted fans and followers to know, there are options for all kinds of eaters on all kinds of menus… as long as you stay focused on your goals and make smart choices.
“For all of you that are very confused about what I ordered from Denny’s,” Teddi explained on her Instagram Stories, “I ordered the Fit Slam, which is egg whites with spinach, and I had a side of avocado. It was delicious!"
Sounds both tasty and healthy — and totally in keeping with ambitious fitness goals.
So yes, Teddi once again reminds her inspired fans, a healthy lifestyle doesn’t always have to mean starting the day with a green juice from a posh Beverly Hills cafe with a specialized menu geared toward celeb types — it means you can hit one of America’s favorite chain restaurants with your fam, and leave feeling virtuous.
