We’re right there with you, daydreaming about a mouthwatering carnitas burrito. But you know if you go that route you will crash by 3 p.m. So if you’re sticking to your clean-eating streak, try one of these salads that’ll have you licking your bowl clean. No FOMO here.
Portobello, guava-glazed pulled pork, pepper bacon… Yeah, this health-conscious fast-casual joint will make even the staunchest carnivore’s mouth water. Our pick?

You thought you knew kale, but if you haven’t had the Tuscan kale salad at this spot, then you thought wrong. Tossed with some lemon, garlic, Grana Padano and bread crumbs, it’s a simple concoction, but it will definitely distract you from daydreaming about the carnitas you wanted so badly (and won’t make you as tired).
