A new year brings new resolutions. And one item at the top of many folks’ lists this January is resolving to lead a healthier life. What better way to jumpstart your health journey in 2024 than with delicious food that’s also good for you? Here are some of our local favorites!
Deluxe Chef Salad
Trunnell’s Farm Market & Gourmet Deli
While many of our readers may associate Trunnell’s with pumpkin picking and caramel apples, their deli on Highway 54 also serves up fresh food, prepared with local ingredients. Their Deluxe Chef Salad features lettuce, Black Forest ham, turkey, eggs, cucumbers, tomatoes and croutons.
Thai Basil Chicken Salad
Gene’s Health Food
What would a local healthy food guide be without an entry from Gene’s? Their Thai Basil Chicken Salad combines free-range roasted chicken with their house-made sweet Thai basil sauce, lettuce, tomato and veganaise. Try it in a whole wheat wrap, or on a sandwich with organic Killer Dave’s bread. They even offer gluten-free bread and coconut paleo wraps.
Wheatgrass Juice Bar
For a sweet treat without all the guilt, look no further than Wheatgrass Juice Bar’s Acai Bowl. This healthy option includes acai mixed with pineapple, gluten-free granola, topped with fruit, coconut, and almond butter sprinkled with vegan chocolate chips.
