I'm realizing I should have a healthy meal from time to time. My definition of healthy is pretty loose. Things I've been eating that I qualify as healthier choices include sushi, Ukrainian (such as Stage Restaurant and B&H Dairy), Falafel Sandwiches, Ramen Soup, Soba. I've kind of run out of ideas for myself though.
My goal is to keep the meals under $10 and should be very tasty and filling. I'm not a big fan of making salad an entire meal either.
Neighborhoods of preference include: East Village, Lower East Side, Chinatown, Gramercy, Soho, West Village. But, I'm open to recommendations in other area too.
