Fast food is healthy at Pastabilities the Healthy Dish, the take-and-bake eatery where co-founders Wilma Adams and Keirsten Eagles craft ready-to-make pasta dishes customized to individual dietary needs. First, customers choose a pasta base?options range from whole-grain penne to low-calorie shirataki noodles. Then, they add on veggies, proteins, and sauces such as traditional marinara or spicy peanut curry. Lastly, they take the meals home to enjoy fresh from the oven, paired with the eatery's crisp salads and cookies for dessert.
We love food! We use the best local ingredients we can find - and make just about everything we possibly can from scratch - or find sources that do the same. We think good food should be affordable and accessible to everyone, so we don't charge "fine dining" prices for our handmade food.

In an effort to find a healthy alternative to fast food without sacrificing speediness, the creators of The Pita Pit began assembling their signature sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night snacks. At each location, thin, Lebanese-style pitas encircle lean, grilled meats and fresh veggies. Sandwich selections span the spectrum from gyro meat and falafel to turkey and prime rib. The staff empowers customers to make healthy choices by displaying nutrition information for each bread, meat, and post-meal toothpick and corralling a selection of healthy sandwiches, which dining companions can wash down with fruit smoothies.
