Dig Inn is a fast-casual chain where you pick a protein, a grain, and two sides. You wait in line, order at a counter, and choose either small or large portions. The vegetable sides are all pretty healthy except for the mac & cheese, which you can probably skip. Stop by for a quick, warm meal when the choice is between this and pizza, and you’re trying to be nicer to your body. Pro tip: ask for a side of hot sauce.
