What's your favorite restaurant for healthy food?

What's your favorite meal there?

I need more options for healthy lunch. Anywhere in charlotte is fine, but near plaza/midwood up to university preferred.

zoe's kitchen/just fresh are the first two healthy grub places that come to mind


unfortunately with healthier places, expect a 6-7 dollar lunch to become a 10-12 dollar lunch.

I go to Healthy Home Market and pick up a wrap or a sandwich. Or pulled smoked chicken, pretty awesome.

Where I used to work there was an HT around the corner, and I'd go there and make a big salad.

fug now I'm starving.

Yeah... honestly there's not all that much I like at typical restaurants that would be considered healthy... I'm not big on salads, so...

I usually do what catfang said.. hit the HT that's like 1 minute from my office and get a sub with minimum condiments, or some chicken or something...

MCP that works here with me is on a diet and has done extremely well with it... and he's always bringing in stuff that smells delicious like smoked chicken... one of these days me and him gonna get in a fight over his lunch.

Yeah the Plaza-Midwood HT is being rebuilt, but that's ultimately good since it was previously too small for the awesome salad bar I always hear about.

I've got a great Steak N Hoagie that's got some really good healthy options. Subway is meh, fast food is not an option.

I need a Qdoba or Moe's for crying in the mud

Crisp on 7th (near Philosopher's Stone) is pretty good.

It isn't so much about where, it is about portion control.
