From Our Editors
A link of an East Coast chain that's garnered acclaim from publications such as Think and The Boston Globe, Energy Kitchen only slings burgers, wraps, salads, and American dishes with less than 500 calories per serving. Its chefs opt for grilling, baking, and steaming their noshes instead of frying food in heavy oils or tongue-staining oil paints. The menu is backed by a triumvirate of wellness experts: a recipe developer with celiac disease, a nutritionist, and a fitness trainer. Each incorporates their area of expertise into low-fat, high-protein meals comprised of lean free-range beef, whole-wheat buns and wraps, and fat-free dressings that taste just as delectable as high-calorie counterparts or butter sculptures of meatloaf.
