Where To Eat Healthy Post-Valentine’s Day

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be hard. Substitute the cheesy and greasy for the fresh and filling. Believe it or not, chefs around Atlanta are equally as capable in creating low calorie, savory items as they are with concocting our favorite fatty comfort foods. There’s a time and a place for both ends of the spectrum, but we think the time is now to try some nutritious options. If you can go out to eat at some of the best restaurants in Atlanta, still have a delicious meal and not feel guilty or ridiculously full afterwards, why not put down the chocolates and conversation hearts already?

Use this guide as a starting point to our favorite “healthy pleasures” around the city:
