Good Greens is a little to-go only gem that can be found on the left hand side of the street right after you cross the bridge onto Wilmington Island. It is tucked around the side of the Mercer Plaza. Once you enter there is a fridge to your left with salads, sides, smoothies and snacks. With the motto, “eat better, not less” you will find plenty of fresh greens, whole grains, seasonal farm fresh vegetables, organic proteins and homemade dressings. It is truly healthy, real food at a convenience.
The salads and sides change weekly and social media is updated to let you know what the owner, Kelly Grenchik is whipping up in the kitchen. When I stopped by, I grabbed a harvest salad (kale, spinach, quinoa, roasted sweet potatoes, dried cranberries, toasted walnuts, crumbled local goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette) for $10. I also wanted to try a couple of sides, so I went for the spicy corn and black bean salad and a Greek broccoli for $5 each.
The food was fresh and impressively flavored. As a matter of fact, when I stopped by Good Greens it was to score a couple of healthy items to eat on the beach. What I received instead was enough food to not only eat lunch that day and two other healthy meals.
Savannah, don’t miss out, this is really delicious food, healthy, a good price and a completely convenient grab-n-go situation. It is about 15 minutes from Ardsley Park but the drive time was well worth it to have healthy lunches for the next couple of days. The amount of chopping that went into that broccoli salad would have taken me much longer than 15 minutes. Scout’s suggestion is to leave the chopping to Good Greens, stop by, grab-n-go and enjoy some summer fun.
