Where Leslie Needleman and Mary Kathryn Bass Dine and Grocery Shop

Amidst the myriad nutritionally-dubious eating establishments that Dallas boasts, it’s hard to suss out the good stuff. So we called on two ladies who know their stuff. Big time…Enter Leslie Needleman and Mary Kathryn Bass.

The founders of The Gem juice bar (and all-around happy place) and two seriously cool chicks kindly offered to share their short list of healthy restaurants, grocery stores, and online resources for your shopping and dining pleasure… (Thanks ladies!)

Herewith their go-to spots.
