Symmetry is a one-stop shop for all things healthy living. Here, the staff treats physical ailments and dietary deficiencies with massage, chiropractic services, colonics, and nutrient-rich foods. They stock their shelves with bulk herbs, supplements, massage tools, and their own brand of essential oils and perfumes, which can help you feel more relaxed than a sloth in a bubble bath. They also cultivate several garden towers and a 3-acre plot of land dedicated to growing fresh produce, located just 2 miles from the store.
Recently, they expanded their array of services with the Organic Juice & Smoothie Bar, where staffers churn organic, local fruits and veggies into juice and smoothies. In addition to selling their concoctions individually, they also develop menus for juice cleanses. They've received much positive feedback on the new beverage bar and have had clients integrate their creations into doctor-prescribed treatment plans for diseases such as cancer.
Edgehill Cafe is Nashville’s local ingredient-loaded breakfast and lunch oasis, offering early risers creative riffs on their much-needed java, plus a menu full of freshly made, inventive meals. Show up between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. for the happy-hour special and grab a coffee ($0.75–$0.88) before work’s weekly team-building clay-pigeon-shooting session, or treat your groggy taste buds to a market sandwich filled with egg, feta, fresh basil, and tomato, served on an everything bagel with a side of fruit ($6.50). Specialty drinks such as the toffee-nut-and-chocolate-enhanced Abbe Road ($4) make the perfect liquid complement to all of Edgehill’s morning meals. After the nationwide “La Cucaracha”–blaring sirens sound, signaling morning’s official end, leafy lunch items such as the strawberry salad, dotted with feta and drizzled with Dijon vinaigrette ($7), will sate ravenous Cabbage Patch Kids. Meatavores can try the turkey and pesto panini, served with bacon and swiss on a French baguette ($7).
With more than 845 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company?s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as peach perfection and strawberry whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including peanut butter moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate.
For those with heartier appetites, steel-cut oats steep in soymilk before being enhanced with toppings such as apples, cinnamon, and brown-sugar crumble.

In addition to providing healthy eats to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors ?Team Up for a Healthy America." The initiative fights against childhood obesity while encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active and involved by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
Looking back on a rough-and-tumble career, songwriter and artist Bobby Pinson laments the slow arrival of his success. But having written hit songs for acts including Toby Keith, Sugarland, and Rascal Flatts, it's hard to deny he's made a name for himself by feeding America's ears. Now he's striving to bring his same brand of warm honesty to stomachs.
With the help of his wife, Lucy, and recipes passed down over three generations, the self-proclaimed Panhandle Texan has opened Lucy’s Country Cafe, which liberates the aromas of homestyle cooking to drift across nearby Music Row. As Bobby twists the tuners on his guitar to bring the metallic twang into tune at live weekly performances, forks click a steady beat against plates laden with chicken and dumplings, tender pot roast, and warm sides of mashed potatoes or cornbread bought à la carte or from the all-you-can-eat buffet. Caterers race from the restaurant, bringing feasts for party hosts to pass off as home cooked when trying to prove their kitchen isn't just a mirage.
The owners of Myridia designed their lounge-like eatery to be a place where guests can spend an entire evening and feel as though they've visited multiple venues. The menu covers flavors from several international cuisines—Middle Eastern and Japanese, to name a few—that arrive at tables as appetizers, salads, paninis, and Asian bowls. That worldly approach is also reflected by the drink menu, crowned by wines sourced from regions such as South Africa, Spain, and California. The lounge-like atmosphere keeps patrons relaxing on plush seats while they enjoy themed nightly music events that may range from an '80s night to an evening of songs from local singers and songwriters.
When they were in college, baseball teammates Wes and Bob worked at a local sandwich shop during their downtime. As they placed fillings between bread, they talked often about opening a place of their own. Their partnership in On Site Bites proves that it wasn't just idle chatter or an attempt to use the word "sandwich" as a pronoun. Here, they stack sandwiches with fresh produce and meat to create unique premium subs, such as the Smokin' Joe, whose roast beef and turkey get a kick from three kinds of peppers and "whatever hot sauces [they] have laying around." Diners can pair their sammies with a soup or salad, or a selection from the shop's book club, where customers are invited to leave a book to share or take one to read.
