Reviews from your neighborhood and around the world

My name is Kelli.  I am a 16-year-old student who loves to travel and eat.  When you are out traveling, it is easy to find fast food that isn’t even a little bit good for you.  However, there are lots of great places to find healthy food that tastes good too!  My thought in setting up this site is not only to review great healthy restaurants that I have been fortunate enough to eat at, but also to facilitate reviews of restaurants that others would recommend.  Enjoy these reviews and then submit yours at the bottom of the page. And if a plant-based diet is something your still working up the courage to try, check out my interview with Rip Esselstyn for a bit of motivation and read my thoughts on starting a grassroots movement!
