It’s the final few days of Restaurant Week, and it’s safe to say we’ve eaten our fair share of food. But as swimsuit season inches closer, you may be cracking down on your overall calorie consumption. Don’t get us wrong, we love a good burger…but summer is comin’, which means it’s time to clean up those eating habits and add in some fresh, seasonal fare. To help you out, we’ve rounded up five Newport Beach restaurants that are offering delicious deals on healthy eats. From hearty salads to fresh-squeezed juices, these offerings are as easy on the wallet as they are on the waistline!
