Vegan While Out: Chop't (Washington, DC)

I was very hungry and a bit overwhelmed by the menu, so I settled for the Vegetarian Powerhouse-broccoli, edamame, carrots, sunflower seeds, walnuts, craisins and apples chop’t with spinach and romaine lettuce and spa balsamic vinaigrette.

The dressings have:

"No sugar. No high-fructose corn syrup. Our dressings that are sweetened are made with honey or organic agave nectar." Sweet!

I appreciate that a fresh cutting board is used for every salad to protect those with food allergies and special diets.

After eating, I took a moment to look at the menu again and realized I should have chosen the Create Your Own option with tofu, beets, carrots, black beans and avocado. I know all of those ingredients don't sound like they go well together, but I like to throw a little bit of everything into my salads.

Great salad and the company is committed to the health of children by offering donations, equipment and recipes to Wellness in the Schools.
