Whether you’ve set lofty weight loss resolutions or you’re still trying to reverse the damage of the holiday season, January is certainly a popular month for being mindful of diets. But, it can be hard swapping macaroni & cheese for carrots & peas – especially with stressful schedules and freezing temperatures. Never fear, we’ve rounded up some of the best places around Boston that will make eating healthy both tasty and easy in the new year!
When running errands turns into cardio: Jugos
For days where you’re running around like mad, head inside Back Bay station to Jugos for a healthy energy boost. Go for a Turmeric latte with espresso and cashew milk, or go green with the Aston Batido – a silky smoothie with avocado, kale, and banana. Looking to indulge outside of the straw? Forget the Acai bowl (so 2016) and go for the Santa Domingo Pitaya Bowl loaded with dragon fruit, guava, raspberry, granola, and chia seeds.

They’ve got vegan and gluten free pancakes and vegan French toast with walnut banana compote and raspberry sauce. Want to go savory?
