Donovan and Betty share a passion for fitness, especially with their busy lives. Donovan Archote started early with fitness in high school with body building. After high school, Donovan started competing in fitness competitions and is currently a personal trainer and also serves as a Louisiana State Trooper. The Archote’s own two restaurants in Old Gretna, Thanh Thanh and Huey P’s Pizzeria, where Betty is the chef and runs daily operations at both locations. They hear from their customers, family, and friends that everyone wants to eat healthy but it is too expensive (whether to purchase healthy ingredients to cook or to buy prepared meals from healthy food stores), too time consuming, or too tastless. Any one of these would make eating healthy a challenge but all three make it impossible for most people to stick with over a long period of time. Life became even busier for Donovan and Betty as they added onto their family recently and are presently the proud parents of 14-year old Taylor and their infant son Henry. Raising two children and running two businesses made Betty realize that she was challenged the same way that most new mothers are: she was working out but she didn’t have the time to meal prep to eat healthily. After discussing it with her husband, they realized they had the opportunity to offer exactly what they needed as a family-healthy meals to go. The Archote’s knew that if they could offer healthy meals, it could help so many local families like theirs, with demanding jobs and lifestyles. Using their fitness background, their commitment to a healthy lifestyle, Betty’s culinary skills, and the restaurant’s kitchens Healthy Course Meals was born.
