Foodie Favorites: Healthy Essentials
In the “Hub City,” there are plenty of places to find a healthy meal, but one place in particular caters to those on an anti-inflammatory diet. Healthy Essentials is a hybrid, offering nutritious meals and healthy supplements.
With a rotating lunch menu, the restaurant serves weekly favorites like paleo burgers on Monday and gluten-free chicken nuggets on Tuesday. Served with grilled broccoli and baked sweet potato fries, these bites are balanced and delicious. So “eat more chicken” and feel great about it. Besides a healthy “happy meal” will do your heart some good!
If you’re a morning person, help yourself to a build-your-own breakfast taco. From free-range eggs and poultry, to organic veggies and salsa, this taco is just as good for you as it tastes. Wash it down with a Turmeric Latte that is sweetened with honey and made with your gut-health in mind.
If you’re in the mood for a sweet something, Healthy Essentials has options to spare. From muffins and granola to brownies and cookies, these sweets are all gluten-free or paleo and made with coconut sugar or raw sugar. They are also a go to spot for local smoothie seekers. With 20 plus smoothie blends, you will have plenty of options when it comes to choosing your tasty chiller.
