The easiest health tip you’ll ever get

Researchers have proven that people who smile bigger, live longer. Check out the story here.

Wayne State University studied baseball players’ smiles and found that those with the biggest smiles lived to be about six years older than those with smaller smiles. Next time you feel a frown coming on, squeeze a smile, and remember those six extra years!

What makes you smile?

Going green, Noodles-style

Looking for a way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year? Try going green… Noodles-style. Our style doesn’t involve wearing goofy green hats, or talking to people with pointed ears wearing overalls. You can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with us by taking your appetite green. 

Our restaurants offer the best green spring veggies, which you can add or swap to any of our bowls. 

Spinach 

Popeye’s go-to green is best in the spring. We serve up a lot of spinach in our bowls, as this leaf is found in our Thai Curry Soup, Penne Rosa, Pasta Fresca, and can be added or swapped to any other item. Spinach is high in rich in antioxidants, iron, calcium, magnesium, as well as vitamin B. 

Spring Greens 

Did the name give it away? Spring greens are super fresh this time of year. The Med Salad is made with spring greens, but these leaves can be added or swapped to any of our salads. Spring greens are high in Vitamin C, folic acid, and fiber. 

Asparagus 

As we like to say, “Summer. Winter. Asparagus. Fall.” Springtime means asparagus time at Noodles & Company. The bowl is back, and this bowl is bigger, tastier, and healthier than ever before. On April 7, the new limited time offer asparagus bowl called “Lemon Asparagus Linguine,” made with fresh basil, mushrooms, onions, feta cheese and snap peas, will be offered in restaurants nation-wide through the end of June. We’re pumped to bring asparagus back into our restaurants again because this springtime veggie treats our customers right. Asparagus is fat-free, saturated fat-free, sodium-free, cholesterol-free, a good source of vitamin C, and good source of vitamin A. 

So go get green, Noodles lovers. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Noodles-style, and don’t forget about your stomach.

Give a sandwich, Get a sandwich

To celebrate our new sandwiches in Ohio, we hosted food drives yesterday and today to support these worthy Ohio food banks: Mid-Ohio Food Bank, The Foodbank & Freestore FoodBank. Guests were encouraged to bring in an unopened plastic jar of peanut butter or jelly to any metro Columbus, Dayton or Cincinnati Noodles & Company, and we’d swap if for a FREE SANDWICH DUO. By the end of day one, we had already collected about 2,000 jars of peanut butter and/or jelly. Thank you for all who has supported! We couldn’t have done it without you! Come see us today. Check out  www.noodles.com/sandwiches for more info.
