Embrace Healthy Eating in Clarendon in the New Year!

Clarendon is a hotspot for eating and drinking but as we embrace a new year, many of us have health and wellness goals for the months ahead. Luckily, there are many boutique fitness studios, gyms, and healthy dining options for those who made it a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight or eat better in 2020. Here are a few of our favorite neighborhood spots for healthy eating.

South Block Juice Co

Tucked away on the ground floor of the Lyon Place property, South Block is a local favorite for smoothies and acai bowls year round. Their plant-focused bowls make grabbing a healthy breakfast to-go even easier than whipping up something at home. Their custom smoothies are incredibly tasty, but you can also go off-menu and create your own to fulfill your personal nutritional needs. There is some indoor seating, but on nicer days, take to the patio and soak up the sun outside while you dig into your frosty fruit bowl. 


One block from Lyon Place and just across the street from the Clarendon Metro, you’ll find a favorite local lunch spot, Sweetgreen. Sweetgreen is an innovative, fast casual salad spot that was originally founded in Georgetown by university students. Since then, the salad concept has taken off, and there are dozens of locations nationwide. Grab a classic caesar salad if you want a flavorful twist on a traditional salad or opt for a heartier Harvest Bowl which includes long grain wild rice, chicken, sweet potato, and apple on a bed of kale. 


For a slightly more upscale dining option, Circa has a robust menu filled with healthy options. While many of the surrounding restaurants and bars heavily focus on fried foods, Circa offers an impressive nine salads on their menu in addition to other lighter fare. Their grilled fish is always perfectly prepared and the blackened chicken mango salad is a reliable healthy order. 

All three of these options are within a one minute stroll of Lyon Place (if not in the very same building!) which makes it easy for residents to stick with their health goals. No matter how busy you are or how late you arrive home from the office, there is a convenient diet-friendly option. If your New Year’s Resolution in 2020 is to eat better, there are plenty of delicious, popular places in the Clarendon neighborhood to make it easy to achieve your goals.
