Best Healthy Meal: Jason's Deli

The old adage says you are what you eat, and those who want to eat healthy go to Jason's Deli, according to readers. It was voted best for healthy meals in the Advocate's 2013 Best of the Best competition.

With a salad bar offering a wide variety of fresh, mostly organic vegetables and salad fixings, gluten-free bread and menu options and a wide-ranging menu with a variety of low-calorie options for sandwiches, salads and soups, Jason's Deli is the place to go to find a healthy meal, manager Jeff Hicks Jr. said.

"We have such a wide variety of options," Hicks said. "This way, people can eat healthy and live healthy lives."

He said it's always a good feeling to be recognized for what he and his coworkers offer the community.

"It feels awesome. It makes all of us feel really good," he said.
