Goodbye jolly belly: We all want to feel trimmer without sacrificing on taste, right? In the New Year, make a resolution to visit Vegetable Butcher in SLO, Thomas Hill Organics in Paso Robles, Robin's Restaurant in Cambria, and all of the amazing farmers' markets the county has to offer. You might also want to try new plant-based eatery Nourish in downtown SLO, where you can pick up a quick, wholesome lunch that gets you on the right track. Sign up for a local CSA box or just plant your own veggie seeds and watch them grow. Taste the rainbow with fresh-pressed juices crafted at Seeds, Bliss Café, and Neighborhood Acai and Juice Bar (SLO); The Blender (Los Osos); or Arroyo Grande spots Planted and Virtjuice. Whatever you do, put down those holiday cookies. Those suckers are way past their prime. Δ
