South Africa’s first healthy fast food restaurant, located in Brooklyn, lets you take charge of your eating by offering preservative-free fast food.

If you want to be healthy and make better food choices, but simply don’t have the time, look no further. At Green is Better Saladbar Restaurant, you can take charge of your eating by choosing what you put into your body, with preservative-free fast food.

Green is Better is the first healthy fast food restaurant in South Africa. The concept was born in 2006 with the first salad bar opened in Paris. Adèle Hatting then took the initiative and bought the rights for South Africa and then open the first South African Green is Better Saladbar in Cherry Lane, Brooklyn in January.

With a high number of South Africans suffering from diabetes, heart diseases and obesity, Adèle is adamant that our health can improve by eating a healthy meal every day. At Green is Better you can design your own meal by choosing your base (lettuce, quinoa, pasta, gluten-free pasta, rice or a wrap) and add a minimum of four toppings, like sliced grilled chicken, peppers, feta and pineapple, as well as a salad dressing. This way you can choose exactly what you feel like eating at that specific moment and you don’t have to wait for 30 minutes, but only 60 seconds. So there are no more excuses for not eating healthy.

The Saladbar has more than 30 toppings including different proteins, veggies, fruit and dairy products. There are also soups, quiches, desserts, wraps, muffins, tea, coffee, cappuccino, juices and smoothies available every day, and all ingredients are fresh and preservative-free.
