Healthy Diet

Looking for an easy way to eat healthy? Grab yourself a bowl. Many restaurants now offer a selection of bowl-based meals that are convenient and often nutritious. When ordering, look for bowls with fruits, vegetables or lean proteins as the main ingredients, while steering clear of those made up of fried chicken, cheese or other fatty options.
