Kale Me Crazy, another Homewood staple, is the best spot to grab something healthy for breakfast, lunch or just a quick snack. My go-to is the poké bowl.

It can be so hard to find something on-the-go that’s healthy and makes you feel good. Farm Bowl makes it easy to grab a juice and a bowl and get right back to your day.

8. Chop N Fresh

Any of your salad dreams can be made true at Chop N Fresh. They have signature salads they’ve come up with, but you can also create your own with any ingredients you want.

9. Bettola

Usually, a nice dinner out doesn’t mean you’re going to have the healthiest meal (that’s okay, that’s what a night out is all about!) but sometimes, you just want something good for you. Bettola makes getting your veggies in easier than ever. Look at that okra…
