Healthy Choice: Sweet Green

Sweet Green is one of my favorite salad take-out places in Philadelphia. I love the atmosphere, the people and the quick take-out process. I had my first Sweet Green experience over the summer. I went with one of my friends that was raving about Sweet Green. I selected the Kale Caesar Salad. I didn’t enjoy the Kale, so I didn’t had Sweet Green for awhile. I recently moved to the city and went with one of roommates to Sweet Green after our run one day. I decided to create my own Caesar salad and this is when I knew Sweet Green was going to be a favorite restaurant of mine. I’m at Sweet Green at least once a week.

I love going down the line and selecting which type of lettuce I would like, the different toppings, and if I would like light, medium or heavy salad dressing. I also love how Sweet Green will mix the salad right in front of you and put it into a plastic container to go. This process only takes about 5 minutes total.
