Eating Healthier in Washington DC for 2022

BY Blog Editor

Have you made your New Year’s Resolution for 2022? A new year means a new you! It may come as no surprise that the most common new year’s resolutions have to do with health. Losing weight, eating healthier, getting in better shape, even focusing on mental health are all some of the most popular resolutions we make to ourselves to change our behavior for the better in new year.

If your health is at the top of your mind in this new year, try this local business for a way to create a healthier you in 2022.

sweetgreen – With locations throughout Washington DC (and throughout the country) sweetgreen may be a national chain, but it started as a small Washington DC restaurant back in 2007 with recent grads from a Washington DC university. It’s founders realized two options for food;  food that was slow, expensive, and fresh—or fast, cheap, and unhealthy. Seeing the need for a third option, sweetgreen’s mission has always been healthy fast food, made from scratch and local suppliers. They now have an extensive menu of salad and rice bowls, ready to be ordered online or delivered right to your Wray apartment. Their Foggy Bottom location is less than a 5 minute walk from your apartment.

Healthy and affordable eating isn’t the only goal of sweetgreen – they’re also about sustainability. In a world where the long- and short-term effects of climate change pose major challenges for farmers, the need for regenerative food systems has never been more important. That’s why sweetgreen made a promise to do more for the planet, by taking less. Their plant-forward menu means that they’re already on average 30% less carbon intensive than the average American meal. Their goal is to become carbon neutral by the end of 2027.

If living greener was also one of your 2022 goals, sweetgreen can get you on track in the new year in more ways than one!
