Subhead: 
Stride into summer with dishes that taste like a seasonal triumph: fresh, local, sweet and healthful.
Body 1: 

Soupergirl
With a focus on vegan and vegetarian local ingredients, Soupergirl’s soups, salads and sandwiches are hearty but will keep calories in check for summer. Venture into veggies with the spring vegetable or sweet potato-leek soup, or sample a sloppy-Jane sandwich, made with produce piled on top of multigrain bread. 1829 M St. NW

Protein Bar + Kitchen
Whether you want to sit down or grab something on the go, this hot spot offers meals that are delicious, nutritious and low-cal. Our go-to so far this spring: breakfast scrambles. Also, try the Mexicali bowl with scrambled whole eggs, black beans, cheddar cheese, salsa, kale and chipotle Greek yogurt topped with avocado—a mere 290 calories and 21 grams of protein! 925 17th St. NW

Khepra’s Raw Food Juice Bar
Get all of the fruits, veggies and deliciousness you need at this temple of good health on H Street. Take your taste buds on a joy ride with the almond hempburger accompanied by a flavorful green high super juice. Try the luscious cashew cheesecake, a sweet that doesn’t carry the guilt of indulgence. 402 H St. NE
