NEPA Restaurants Put a Healthy Twist on Dining Out

NEPA’s local restaurants serve wholesome (and totally delicious) choices that take “health food” to a whole new level. We’re going way beyond celery sticks and diet shakes here. Their menus are filled with everything from protein-packed salads to hearty grain bowls to locally sourced steaks.

Our dining scene has enough options to keep your New Year’s resolutions going strong. Run to a salad joint on your lunch break, or enjoy a refreshing boost at a raw food café. Start the day with a balanced breakfast, or treat yourself to dinner at a farm-to-table restaurant. The choices are endless, but these dining destinations all have one thing in common: a passion for real, fresh food and helping people to feel their best.

If you need some inspiration, we have your back. Check out these local restaurants with a healthy flair.
