WHERE TO GO IF YOU NEED A BREAK FROM HEAVY HOLIDAY MEALS

Feeling heavy with all that holiday food around? Turn to local eateries such as, Chopt, Cafe West Express and Clean Juice for lighter fare that won’t weigh you down.

The holidays tend to leave us feeling as stuffed as the turkey on our dinner table. Cooking nutritious meals may be a challenge during this busy time filled with endless parties and celebrations, so it’s good to know where to find some lighter options. Here are three places, all conveniently situated on Roswell Road, to visit if you need a break from all the cheese plates and fruitcakes.

Chopt

A build-your-own salad bar, Chopt is a smash hit in its home city, New York, and is now winning over the taste buds of lettuce-seeking Atlantans. You can find one of its area locations in the Tuxedo Festival shopping center. There are six salads that are fewer than 400 calories apiece. The standout is the Mexicali Vegan, but if you want something a little heftier, the Kebab Cobb with pickled red onions, feta and tzatziki is a great way to go.

Cafe West Express

Situated in north Buckhead, Cafe West Express is the brainchild of fitness guru Tammy Stokes, who also founded West Coast Workout. Soups are the centerpiece at Cafe West: They’re made from scratch and packed with nutrients and antioxidants that make you feel full and happy. The Magic Mushroom soup is especially warming this time of year.

Clean Juice

Found in Sandy Springs, Clean Juice claims to be the only USDA-certified organic juice bar franchise. The drinks are refreshing, but there’s more than just juice. There are also various toasts, açaí bowls and smoothies. The smoothies are especially perfect for a meal on the go.
