You’ve decided to make a personal pact to eat healthier lunches during the week, but the thought of eating more vegetables makes you want to stab a piñata filled with baby carrots. Evergreens is not only the leafy-greens solution to a healthier lunch, but it’s also an excellent place for lunch, period. It’s a small, cramped assembly-line situation where people line up for chopped salads to-order, and you can choose from one of their pre-made options like Spicy Kale Caesar or the El Sombrero (think taco salad) or build your own. It’ll set you back less than 15 dollars, and your insides will be happy with you.
