When it comes to protein, Byrdie’s is top-notch with delicious rotisserie chicken that comes in their signature bowls and sandwiches. While healthy and chicken might conjure images of boring, dry chicken breast, Byrdie’s is another world filled with flavorful. Each bite is a reminder that healthy and basic doesn’t have to mean boring.

With green in the name, you know this fast-casual restaurant is up on their salad game. With a rotating menu of signature bowls and salads, it’s hard to go wrong here. We like the option to add extra protein and the prominently displayed nutritional information is key for our clients who are staying on track. If you’re feeling a bit decadent, their signature bread is worth the Calories.
The Virtuo Trainers recommend: The buffalo chicken bow which comes in under 500 Calories and packs 35 grams of protein is a great choice.

LA is the undisputed champ when it comes to brunch and Toast’s Mid City Location is among the major reasons why. Any breakfast spot with a line during the week is doing something right. With an extensive menu, there are plenty of options for those saying yes to carbs (try the pancakes!) and more protein-packed options for those that are keeping it Keto. Make sure to grab some friends, order some healthy omelets and split an order of their amazing pancakes for the table.
