People need nutrition for more reasons than they think about. While the common reasons that people get nutrition is so that they can look and feel better, there are a lot of benefits that people get from living healthy and eating healthy. For one thing, when people get nutrients, they can actually think better and function better overall. This is especially effective when they combine healthy eating with drinking water. However, in this society that promotes comfort foods, it is important for people to find some kind of way to eat healthy while saving tons of money. The only way people have been able to save money is by going to the grocery store and gathering food. However, a lot of people don’t have time to prepare their own meals.
This is where Nathaniel Ru comes in. He has thought about ways to eat healthy fast food while saving money. Therefore, he has decided to start up a restaurant that offers highly affordable nutrition. He has put together a restaurant that serves all of the nutrients that people need at a price they can afford. This restaurant is called Sweetgreen. This is one of the few fast food restaurants that actually promotes healthy living.
For people that are interested in what Sweetgreen has to offer, they can just visit the website in order to see examples of meals that one can order. They have everything. They have many different types of salads with full flavored dressings. They also have different types of meats so that one can get their protein. Even then, there are other types of vegetables that offer plenty of protein for people so that they can get the needed nutrient.
Nathaniel Ru not only wants to bring healthy eating and living to others, he wants to have a lasting effect on the food industry. One thing he said is that everything one does should last longer than him. Therefore, while it is good to have Sweetgreen, it would be even better for it to last a very long time or even inspire others to bring forth something similar to the industry.
