Though you wouldn’t know it from the looks of my blog, I am making a concerted effort to eat more healthfully. I almost always pack a lunch from home. On the rare occasion that I go out for lunch, the temptations of less-than-great-for you food is overwhelming. Winghart’s Shipwreck Burger, Storms Angel Hair with Farlanese, and NOLA’s shrimp po’ boy are all going to make me rip my bad-idea-jeans.
I’d like to gather some ideas of relatively healthy places to pick up lunch. I am a fan of Salad Cafe, which is a few blocks away. There is an unforgiving review of it on Yelp, but I’ve probably been there 4 times and have never had any complaints. Penn Avenue Fish Company and Sushi and Rolls each do a nice job of sushi, which is also fairly healthy.
The persistent TV commercials keep telling me that Subway is a healthy lunch option, but I’m not a Subway fan. It makes my hands smell weird, and no matter how much I scrub, I can’t get that weird sandwich smell out of my hands until it decides to fade on its own.
So what else is out there? Where can I pick up a tasty and healthy lunch in dahntahn?
