Chill Out

by Mike Hunter

Getting away for lunch in the heat seems like a chore, so why not make it a cool and healthy moment — alone or with a client or business associates? Here are some of the cool “cool” spots where a light meal or a cool beverage will help to get the job done.


Fresh ingredients and healthy eating are what make up GreenMix. This “modern fresh salad” restaurant is anything but hot. Cool salads in a variety of forms — traditional salads, wraps and more. Cool grilled chicken, seasonal vegetables and many signature dressings mean flavor, too.

Smoothies and seasonal cool drinks can become a meal at Jamba Juice. With 100-percent fresh fruits and ingredients, the menu here is vast and includes nutrients to order. From proteins and grains to grasses and dairy, these “meals” are almost all made with frozen ingredients or ice. Cool tastes for sure.

Ditch the soups (although they are delicious) and go for a well-made cool sandwich. The Sacks Symphony says it all. Turkey, cool avocado, sprouts and bacon will provide flavor and keep temperatures down. Fresh and flavorful salads are also a specialty that will chill anyone out.
