To Satisfy Your Salad Craving:
You may have seen one of these restaurants around town already, and if you haven’t already walked in, we highly recommend. This restaurant’s mission is to provide healthy and simple foods to customers, while inspiring a community of those who support real food. Sweetgreen believes it is their responsibility to connect people to local, healthy food. Because of this, they are committed to working with small to mid-size growers who are farming sustainably. Therefore, you know your food is coming from a good place. Check out this place for your next healthy lunch or dinner.
Roti’s purpose? “To serve food that loves you back.” It’s no question that Roti Mediterranean is inspiring those to participate in their mission. The Mediterranean diet is rich in wholesome grains, vegetables, olive oil, and lean protein and that is exactly what is served in this new up and coming restaurant chain. Not only do they supply the healthy ingredients to a Mediterranean diet, but you get to choose how you want them served.
Neatly tucked away in River East, Columbus Tap offers a few healthy eats if you’re feeling hungry after exploring Millenium Park. Some of their healthier options include open faced toasts that can be topped with avocado, squash and all sorts of healthy ingredients.
