I was trying to think of the next place to feature on this series and I can’t believe I haven’t done one on my favorite place ever.. Sweetgreen!
Sweetgreen is a healthy food chain that is rapidly expanding since the opening of its first location in Washinton DC in 2007. Sweetgreen is different from most salad spots because they’re ingredients are always fresh, healthy (of course), and most importantly.. SO GOOD. They source local and organic ingredients and update their menu seasonally to feature foods that are in their prime. You can either choose a salad/bowl from their menu, or customize your own. If you’re vegan/vegetarian, this place will be your new best friend because there are so many fruits, vegetables, and proteins to choose from. If you’re not vegan/vegetarian, there’s still a variety of cheeses, meat, and fish. You can either have a salad or grain bowl, and no matter how much you pack into it, they are all reasonably priced.
What I get: A custom with mixed greens, wild rice, sweet potatoes, avocado, beets, spicy broccoli, tomatoes, falafel, and balsamic dressing.
Locations: See if there’s a sweetgreen near you here.
So next time you want something quick and think fast food is the easiest option, go to Sweetgreen! There really is something for everyone.
