We all know the importance of eating healthy. Especially with the new year well underway, plenty of resolutions surround eating healthy and practicing healthier habits. However, it's about that time into the year where older, less healthy, habits start creeping back into life as the mundane routines kick in. Pizza becomes a more frequent meal, and greens get thrown to the wayside. 

Luckily, there are plenty of places in Mansfield that offer healthy -- and tasty! -- meals. We've compiled a few of them here for your consideration, so the urge to reach for the pizza can be at least a little bit resisted!

Owners, Chef Khang V. and his business partner Ronnie L. grew up together in Hawaii and are very familiar with how tasty and popular poke is. You can find them almost anywhere, from the neighborhood gas station to the local grocery store and even the big grocery chains.
