    PLYMOUTH, Minn., Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating
 (SSHE) of Minnesota announces the opening of its 20th location in as many
 months since the company's inception in Minnesota.  This new store, located in
 Eagan, can be found in the Yankee Square shopping center (I-35E, Yankee Doodle
 Rd and Pilot Knob Rd).
     SSHE provides nutritionally controlled, balanced meal plans for the
 purpose of improving health through nutrition, including weight loss, lowering
 cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar, in addition to many other health
 benefits.  The meals are all fresh -- not frozen or dried, and are prepared
 locally at the company's commissary facility in Plymouth, then either
 delivered to customers or picked up at one of the 20 retail locations.
     The franchise's unprecedented growth in Minnesota is in direct response to
 consumer demand.  The obesity epidemic in America continues to grow, while
 consumers are seeking sensible, affordable resources in fighting the battle of
 the bulge.  Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating offers a simple and realistic
 solution with no gimmicks, contracts, or unrealistic claims.  The meal plan
 offers 21 freshly prepared meals per week, and is low fat, low cholesterol,
 sodium restricted and calorie-controlled.  SSHE brings the convenience of 20
 neighborhood retail locations, providing easy access for meal pick-up or the
 convenience of delivery, while keeping the price point affordable -- around
 $100 for a complete week's worth of meals.
     SSHE's unique approach to maintaining a healthy diet is gaining popularity
 across the nation, with its meals now available in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa,
 Illinois, Nebraska, Indiana, Michigan, and Georgia.
