REAL 25 Overview Update copy

Finding quality healthy food – whether you’re traveling, or in your home city – is often harder than it should be. Maybe you find a vegan restaurant that doesn’t source locally; or a gluten-free-friendly spot where half the menu has been deep-fried. Whatever your conundrum, we’ve got the solution: the USHFC presents REAL25 – a list of the healthiest restaurants in cities across the nation, from a truly holistic perspective.

REAL25 restaurants have been selected through a comprehensive algorithm that takes into consideration how your food is made, where it comes from and which health-focused diets it accommodates (amongst other things). The selections are then run past a local Expert Advisory Board to verify the quality of the food served.

In being selected for REAL25, these establishments have been recognized by the USHFC as contenders for REAL Certification – the nationally trusted mark of excellence in the foodservice community for best practice.

USHFC has teamed up with TastefulApp in the launching of REAL25, to help you find healthy restaurants near you. Tasteful is a healthy food finding app that uses your geo-pin to guide you towards the best restaurants near you, based on your personalized dietary requirements. You can download the app for free on iTunes.
