WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A healthy start to the new year doesn't mean you can't go out for dinner.
Eryn Roberts from Yelp shared recommendations from Yelpers for restaurants that have great tasting dishes that are good for your body.
Healthy eating starts at breakfast and although the menu may be small, SUNdays cafe is one of the best places in town to start your day. Yelpers rave about the perfectly brewed coffee and over the top acai bowls with fresh fruit and local ingredients. This is the perfect place to work remotely and indulge without worrying about your waistline. The hours are also convenient if you want to swing by after a morning surf or run along the beach.
