For us health foodies, a salad is a staple part of our diet, but sometimes the last thing we want is a bowl of lettuce. Well, Greens Up, located in Santa Monica, solves that problem by serving much more than a boring bowl of lettuce. The shop has a custom salad bar and is dedicated to serving hearty and healthy meals; Greens Up is basically the Superbowl of salad!…
The salads at Greens Up are huge and you are able to add an endless amount of toppings, so you will absolutely leave full and satisfied. You can choose any of the set salad options or create your own which is my personal favorite! Because of the up-to-you nature of Greens Up, any meal at the healthy establishment can be made gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan! The chef selection Thai Salad is packed with fresh Thai flavors and served with spring mix lettuce, organic tofu, carrot, cucumber, tomato, red onion, crushed peanuts and a tangy peanut dressing. This salad is not lacking in ingredients or flavor! Building your own salad at Greens Up is fun and choices range from non-gmo corn, dates, and mushrooms to organic tofu and albacore tuna. Greens Up also carries gluten free Pop Chips to enjoy with any salad. For dessert, you have to order the gluten free and vegan apricot cranberry-coconut cookie; this treat is a delicious finish to any healthy salad meal.
For a casual drop-in meal that will satisfy your hunger without making you feel overly full or deprived of flavor, I highly recommend Greens Up! There are three locations in Los Angeles, making it easy to get your hands on one of the salads. Fresh ingredients and the ability to tailor your meal to your own taste will have your hands up for Greens!
