If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice?s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn?t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it?s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.

Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there?s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there?s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice?all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.

In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit?which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.

Before Heidi's Brooklyn Deli grew to more than 35 locations spanning several states, it was called "Heidi's Bagels and Ice Cream," and there were only a few different kinds of sandwiches. The shop's founders, Steve and Heidi Naples, had moved to Colorado from Brooklyn and opened the shop after finding few spots serving the authentic New York-style deli sandwiches they had grown to love. When Steve decided to quit his steady day job and devote his full time to the new Heidi's Brooklyn Deli, the shop grew to offer 35 deli sandwiches alongside 32 flavors of ice cream. Today, Heidi's menu ranges from sandwiches with Nova Scotia salmon or chicken salad to genoa salami and prosciutto. Start your day with one of nine fruit-infused smoothies, or try one of Heidi's breakfast entrees, including a veggie sandwich or a bagel.

Chinese-style vegetable fritters soaked in a soy-based gravy. Delicate rice crepes filled with housemade cheese or coconut chutney. At Zaika Indian Cuisine & Bar, the culinary team incorporates a few of these Indo-Chinese and South Indian specialties into a menu that's mostly composed of North Indian classics. Those range from ginger- and garlic-flavored chicken slathered in cashew sauce to fish and potatoes doused in a fiery chili sauce. For vegetarian and gluten-free diners, the cooks sauté okra in traditional spices and toss veggies, dried fruits, and roasted nuts into creamy sauces. More than 10 Indian breads can accompany feasts in the dining room, where the walls are painted a bright yellow color reminiscent of turmeric or a chameleon perched on a coward's shoulder.

Staple foods such as chili peppers, corn, and fresh cheese might seem ordinary, but the cooks at Geelaageessa Restaurant & Cantina transform these everyday ingredients into memorable Oaxacan specialties. Drawing on the rich culinary traditions of the Mexican state, they simmer chilies, nuts, and chocolate for a rich mole sauce to be ladled over chicken breasts. Diners can also savor traditional dishes such as tlayudas—fried tortillas spread with asiento and black bean paste, queso fresco, chorizo, and other savory ingredients—or expand culinary horizons with the chapulines, a dish of fried grasshoppers. Horchata topped with cantaloupe, chopped nuts, and cactus fruit rounds out meals with sweet, fruity notes.

Yogurt Zone is one of the few places where dessert has a wealth of health benefits. Frozen yogurt?which comes in flavors such as cake batter, cheesecake, and Greek black cherry?is high in calcium and protein, can lower cholesterol, and has active cultures that facilitate the digestive process. After pumping any combination of these healthy swirls at Yogurt Zone, customers pile on toppings from a selection that includes granola bars, walnuts, yogurt-covered raisins, and brownie bites before a staffer weighs it to price it.
