Each new year, Americans make resolutions to lose weight and to save money; however, many people think this means they have to eat at home in order to eat smart to stay within their diet and budget. At Momcorn in Gurnee, customers can enjoy delicious Latin American and Mexican foods that are also low in calories and friendly for every budget.
“Momcorn’s menu is full of items that cost between $2 and $3.50. There are a number of combo meals and other special deals to appeal to the cost-conscious consumer. Customers can feast for under $10 per person,” Kathy Ross, co-owner of Momcorn, said.
Many of Momcorn's signature items are low in fat, high in fiber, and have no preservatives or sugars. For example, the sope with chicken combo is a three-course meal that is less than 500 calories when paired with tortilla soup and a salad with vinaigrette dressing. The chicken tamales are high in fiber and low in fat at less than 250 calories each, and they are made with vegetable shortening and vegetable oil. Momcorn‘s salads are made with only fresh ingredients; each one is prepared to order and never sits pre-made in a cooler.
As for low-calorie desserts, Momcorn offers fresh-cut fruit and sweet tamales.
