WASHINGTON, DC. - There’s a lot to love about Sweetgreen: It’s fast, provides a fresh menu featuring farm-to-table vegetables and housemade dressings, and has local roots, having been founded by some enterprising undergrads at Georgetown University way back in 2007. Health experts love it, too. “Sweetgreen has some of the best choices for a healthy lunch or dinner, hands-down,” say Lisa Muras, RD, and Nadine Jakim Young, MS, RD, CDE of Virginia Hospital Center. “Most salads total between 400 and 500 calories, an affordable calorie allotment for the majority of people. And many feature heart-healthy fats from avocado, nuts, seeds, and fish.”

Here, they share the healthiest things to order at Sweetgreen, what to avoid, and how to create a super-healthy salad.
