Liverpool Food Scientists Present the New Nutrition Plan

The crack Red Sox medical team participated in a conference call with John Henry's Liverpool Food Scientists today in an effort to get the Red Sox nutrition program on track for 2012. Going forward, Liverpool will now be in charge of all clubhouse food orders.

The new Beckett-focused program will feature Popeyes’ Naked Chicken Tenders, as well as the addition of two new lower calorie side items – green beans and apple sauce.

The Liverpool Leaux program delivers the quality and flavor Red Sox starters expect, while significantly reducing fat, calorie, and sodium content, in comparison with other menu items.

“We know how much our starters love Popeyes' authentic, Louisiana recipe-inspired menu,” said Tom Werner, president of Liverpool Football Club. “As part of living a healthier lifestyle, we wanted to provide options for our players that allow them the opportunity to eat at Popeyes even more often by offering flavorful, better-for-you alternatives.”

How the plan will work: When the Red Sox clubhouse butlers take Josh Beckett's nightly Popeyes order for the 24-piece mixed chicken meal, dozen biscuits, and Mississippi Mud Cake, a.k.a. 6,700 calories, the call to Popeyes will be rerouted to Liverpool where the Food Scientists will take the Beckett's order and change it to one of the Liverpool Leaux items below:
