Ahh, the annual Halloween hangover.
No, we aren’t talking about donut-flavored vodka shots (though that will do a number on your system too, champ). We’re talking about your makeshift candy dinner. The first course started out innocently enough with a Twix appetizer, but before you knew it…it got out of hand. You may have woken up in a sea of bright orange King Size Reese’s wrappers and felt the pangs of Halloween-candy-binge guilt. Well, we’re coming to the rescue. Loosen that drawstring on your sweatpants (and don’t feel bad – it happens to the best of us). Here are 5 places to eat for lunch this Saturday that will cleanse your palette and get you on that healthy food track!missing or outdated ad config
