After the New Year celebration, you may have made a resolution to adopt a stricter diet and cut back on excess consumption. Whether you’ve been sticking to your goal or not, it’s easy to be tempted – especially if you’re eating out. But restaurants don’t have to be your enemy when it comes to eating healthier. In fact, if you’re in the Columbus area, many Easton restaurants feature low-fat, low-carb, vegan and vegetarian dishes that can accommodate your vigorous new eating habits. To give you a better sense of what’s out there, here are five New Year’s resolution-friendly restaurants at Easton.


Asian cuisine lovers will enjoy the deliciously healthy eats from Bibibop at Easton! This fast-casual restaurant prepares each meal fresh in an open kitchen environment.

Finally, you can top your bowl off with a variety of fresh veggies and Asian-inspired sauces. Sticking to your New Year’s resolution never tasted so good!
