Healthy Bites assembles meals that are healthy, organic, and made from local farm-fresh ingredients, and its Lite Bites meals keep fat-burning hormones revving. The selection of available fare changes weekly based on seasonal ingredients; the Sept. 8–13 Lite Bites menu, for example, showcases dinners such as a salmon filet blanketed in a horseradish-almond crust and mango compote, accompanied by a mixed-green side salad topped with ginger dressing. While meaty morsels do appear throughout the dinner options, Healthy Bites specializes in veggie-centric meals to help your heart cross the finish line at another birthday-celebration race. Flavorful and fitness-bolstering concoctions on the Sept. 8–13 menu include spiced black-bean cakes with corn radish salad and lime Greek yogurt, or the chicken-and-broccoli stir fry. Be sure to check out the weekly menu before ordering your dinners via phone call or flare-gun signal.

East Side Produce works closely with farming communities and distributors to provide customers with fresh produce all year round. Every Monday at 8 a.m., they send out an email listing available produce for the week, such as sweet onions, red-skin potatoes, and black plums, which customers can use to cook up fresh, healthy meals for themselves and their families. Boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables arrive on doorsteps Thursday–Saturday, depending on the delivery area. During winter months, East Side Produce enlists the help of farmers in warmer climates to provide shipments of fresh produce temporarily unavailable to the area, allowing residents to finally build snowmen with two eyes made of strawberries.

When customers face the daunting decision of what toppings to pile on to their pizzas, Washington Deli Pizza and Catering offers this advice: “Start simple, then branch out.” In its profile for WUSA 9’s “The Best I’ve Ever Ate” series, the eatery suggests sampling its hearty New York–style slices to find a favorite. Chefs make their own dough and sauce daily, crisping crusts with meatball, spinach, feta, and other toppings. Soy-cheese pizzas offer vegans and vegetarians dairy-free options, and slice meals offer fast fare without having to lasso a food truck full of tamales.

Along with pizzas, the deli packs paninis, wraps, and other staples on the sandwich menu with fillings like capicola ham, grilled crab cake, and muenster cheese. For family parties or office lunches on elevator appreciation day, the catering menu lodges cold cuts on party trays or in boxed lunches.

Love Potion #10 isn't a perfume, cocktail, or shade of semigloss paint—it's a tea. And it's a very special loose-leaf tea at that, hand-blended from a recipe created by Sunyatta Amen's grandmother. Sunyatta grew up helping out in her parents' herbal shop in Harlem and accompanied them on trips to foreign locales to buy their wares. So it is no surprise that she went on to open her own shop, SiTea, where she can share her passion for teas, spices, and all things aromatic and healing.

Sunyatta has made multiple appearances on the morning news, educating viewers about how to make the perfect cup of chai while touting the benefits of buying loose teas versus skimpy bagged teas. Her potent full-leaf blends can be brewed twice or more while still retaining their flavor and beneficial essences.

If you're trying to find Dulcinea, just look for the bright orange exterior, which stands apart from the restaurant's neighboring grey buildings. The hard-to-miss color continues indoors, where vividly painted walls are matched by the bright Mexican cuisine. Carne asada burritos burst with the deep green of grilled peppers, while pink morsels of shrimp are tucked inside toasty quesadillas.
