While what you order is of great significance, where you are ordering from has an added level of influence. You’re less likely to be tempted by poor choices if you are dining at local restaurants that focus on vigorous, flavorful and balanced options.

To help you stick to your to healthy regimen, we’ve compiled a list of what we think are some of the best options when you need something quick and healthy on the go in Scottsdale.
