While Asian Box is a mini-chain, all of the food here is fresh and delicious. Everything is gluten-free and can be made specifically to how you’d like it.

No matter what you decide on all of the food at Asian Box is perfect for a healthy lunch.

Blue Barn Gourmet is really only healthy if you decide to order the right things, but everything here is delicious. Order a salad and maybe ask for your dressing on the side. The Detox Salad is always a good choice. It’s filled with kale, quinoa, seeds and a “master cleanse” vinaigrette. If you’re looking to be healthy definitely stay away from the cheesy sandwiches.
