At Cool Springs Family Chiropractic we believe in treating the whole person. Not just treating your body but also what you add to it. Here are ten healthy restaurants we recommend in Franklin.
1. Grabbagreen Food + Juice
Grabbagreen Food + Juice is a fantastic place to check out for clean eating. They have locally-sourced when possible, everything is responsibly sourced proteins. Fresh juice and 100% whole foods! You can start with their pre-selected menu options or if you want you can create your own!
To create your own they have wonderful carbohydrate bases, such as quinoa and brown rice. Then you add your protein and we love their selection, from chicken to edamame. They have great nutrients and dairy. Finally, you top it off with your favorite sauces and herbs.
They have everything for the whole family too. A well-balanced kids meal and fantastic juices and smoothies the little ones will love! Another wonderful thing they have is elixirs to help with everything from your gut to your immune system.
2. First Watch-Cool Springs
First Watch is one of the upscale healthy restaurants with a twist on American classics. They use cage-free eggs for the base of their breakfasts. Adding delicious sides such as smoked wild-caught sockeye salmon to their eggs benedicts. With wonderful healthy fats to top off a breakfast classic.
Another wonderful recommendation to try at First Watch is their morning market veg. With a delicious combination of roasted zucchini, mushrooms, shallots, tomatoes, superfood kale, and some fantastic goat cheese all this topped with fresh herbs.
If you’re looking for a protein-packed breakfast they have a delicious smoked salmon and roasted vegetables frittata. This would be a great balanced meal to dive into after a long morning run or a date with the weights. Wild-caught smoked sockeye salmon, with ciabatta toast, mixed greens, parmesan cheese, and a chive cream drizzle just makes your taste buds dance.
3. Jason’s Deli
Jason’s Deli has a slogan: “all good things start with wholesome ingredients”. This is so true. They are not only a delicious deli, but they also have vegetarian and gluten-free options. In addition to sandwiches and wraps, they have soups, salads, pasta, and potatoes.
Their vegan options have salads, spinach veggie wraps, steamed veggies (steaming keeps the nutrients locked in over boiled) and delicious chips and dips. Their menu includes many organic options in addition to gluten-free and vegan options.
4. Zoe’s Kitchen
Zoe’s Kitchen is one of the healthy restaurants that have a variety of food. Their kid’s menu has well-balanced choices. From your basic grilled chicken fingers to salmon or shrimp kabobs. They also have meals tailored just for families. From kabobs to chicken and even falafels. Their choices are right off the Mediterranean diets menu.
Their salads and soups are a must-have. Another well balanced, delicious choice is their avocado lentil or their quinoa salads. They are mixed with clean carbs and delicious healthy fats along with your vegetable favorites.
5. Burger Up Franklin
Our ancestors ate meat, now we eat burgers! The meat found at Burger Up Franklin is locally sourced. This does not only give you better quality meat but also is much more sustainable and great for the environment!

They also have a mouth-watering marathon burger which is made from quinoa and black beans topped with lettuce, tomato, onion and creme fraiche. Then there’s their impossible burger for our vegan-friendly friends.
