Eating healthy doesn’t always require counting calories—just remember that “green” rhymes with “lean” and “fried” rhymes with “died.” Nosh mnemonically with this Groupon.

The menu includes entrees such the mexican platter’s mole-drenched enchilada and savory tostada with garlic scallion rice and guajillo chili sauce ($23), and the all-American veggie burger with homemade pickles and kamut or veggie bread ($19). Raw pizzas are $14.50–$15.50.

Quintessence

Flavorful, internationally inspired raw food often draws celebs such as Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler to this East Village eatery, according to Time Out New York. But Quintessence has plenty to offer beyond star-spotting. Chefs lovingly construct each dish on the menu from organic fruit, vegetables, and grains never heated above 118 degrees. The staff piles raw pizzas with toppings such as spiced nuts, kalamata olives, and avocado, and craft raw pastas from yellow squash. The brunch menu incorporates sprouted-kamut bread and sweet yam crepes to recreate breakfast staples from benedicts to bagels. All desserts are nondairy and sugar-free, including the house-made ice crème and the pecan pie on a crush of soaked almonds, walnuts, and dates.
