Eating three meals a day has become a challenge with my recent work load and a bit discouraging for my fitness and health goals. I love food especially fatty foods and junk foods. We eat out a lot and it’s difficult to always make the healthier choice on the menu. When you work from home, going out to grab food is a much needed break. Eating out is also one of the only times hubs and I sit down and just catch up and enjoy eachother’s company. Working crazy hours, makes finding fast, healthy, affordable food options difficult. Recently, I was invited to visit Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop. Greenleaf offers fresh and healthy foods on the go and at an affordable price. There are plenty of pre made grab and go options as well as a full menu for those who have a little more time to sit and enjoy a fresh meal.

Our first visit,
we decided to try the Hollywood location before an event in the area. Currently, Greenleaf has 7 locations in the Los Angeles area. Walking in, I was immediately impressed by the healthy food options that Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop has to offer. Most impressive are the prices. Living in Los Angeles, we have tons of healthy food options, but it can get pretty expensive to eat out, even if we are just having salads. Greenleaf offers healthy foods at a great price and all with a welcoming environment. You can view the menu here. The entrees are between $9-$16 dollars and the portions are filling.
The decor is warm and inviting. A mix of modern and rustic chic. You walk in, place your order at the walk up register, and take a number. The food arrives at your table fast and hot. I ordered the salmon with spinach. Hubs ordered a traditional burger. We both decided to get chips and dip, which turned out to be fresh homemade guacamole and salsa, and for dessert we split a brownie. There are lots of healthier beverage options and you can even order cocktails.
Hubs and I had a great experience. We left feeling satisfied and full.
