If you need more incentive than just a boost in endorphins to strap on your running shoes and pound the pavement into the office, we’ve got some more incentive for you: Like last year, our friends over at Sweetgreen have graciously offered to give everyone who joins in on Philly’s Run to Work Day this Friday, September 16th, a free salad. Yes, my friend: You will be forking FREE Sweetgreen into your mouth in just three sleeps.
Mall days are mentally exhausting thanks to the endless choices that need to be made throughout: Should I buy the clog/sandal shoes that could be cute or could make me look like someone’s great-great-great aunt? Or should I not? Should I use my credit card to buy said clog/sandal shoes? Or should I be a responsible human and cut my credit card up right then and there? Should I allow a stranger to massage my head with a weird tool they’re trying to sell me? Or should I run away as fast as humanly possibly?
And now there’s another decision to add to the list, at least if you’re going to King of Prussia Mall: To eat Shake Shack or Sweetgreen? I foresee this decision sucking up a lot of my brain power.
• Watermelons are in season right now, and if you’re going for the seedless guys, you’re missing out. Turns out watermelon seeds are packed with protein. Who knew?! And naturally, someone has created watermelon seed butter — which boasts an impressive eight grams of protein per serving — so you can easily spread them onto a sandwich or underneath some avocado toast and work them into your diet without, you know, gagging. Here, Well + Good dishes on where to find that plus seven more condiments you should have on your pantry shelves. [Well + Good]
King of Prussia‘s expansion is only two weeks away from their projected opening on Thursday, August 18th. With over 50 new stores and restaurants to explore, this addition is truly huge. Obviously, here at Foobooz we are most excited about the new Savor King of Prussia area, which is where some old favorites and newcomers will be opening up restaurants in the expansion.
We’ve rounded up the new spots below. They are all expected to open on August 18th and be open regular mall hours (10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday).
Let’s be honest: Awesome Monday nights — like, truly awesome Monday nights — are pretty rare, at least for me. Monday nights in my world are usually reserved for catching up on The Real Housewives. (I am not ashamed, though I probably should be.) But last night was a truly awesome Monday night. Last night, we teamed up with our friends from Rittenhouse’s CorePower Yoga and Sweetgreen for our Be Well Philly Underground Sweat and Salads event, a hot yoga class followed by — wait for it — free Sweetgreen salads for all. See? Awesome. Read more »
You know when you tell yourself you’re going to get your lunch-break workout on, but then 11:30 a.m. rolls around and you’re already buried in work and dreaming about your couch and you just know that if you slip away from your desk for an hour, your couch time is going to be delayed by an hour so you skip your workout? Well, Flywheel has created a 30-minute condensed version of their signature 45-minute Spin class that pretty much nips that workout-skipping problem in the bud. After all, what’s 30 minutes?

Listen up, ladies: If you’re already thinking about the sad, leftover enchiladas you’re going to microwave for dinner tonight, stop. Just stop. Why? Because tonight, City Fit Girls is hosting a three-mile run to Sweetgreen’s University City location (3925 Walnut Street), rain or shine, and everyone who pounds the pavement gets to end their run with — wait for it — a free salad at Sweetgreen. (If Oprah is currently in your head screaming “You get a salad! And YOU get a salad!” I’m right there with you.) Read more »
“This is going to be a problem,” I said to myself as I made the less-than-five-minute desk-to-door journey from my office to Sweetgreen’s new Rittenhouse location, set to open this Friday at 1821 Chestnut Street. It’s a problem, of course, for my poor, sad wallet, since I imagine I’ll be spending a good chunk of my paycheck here each week.
But I have to admit, I was more than a wee bit excited to see inside the new shop. We’d been hearing rumors foreeeeeever about a Sweetgreen coming to this side of Broad Street, but since the powers-that-be have been pretty tight-lipped about details, the new store’s opening has come with more than its share of build-up.

Back when we told you guys about fall fitness and foodie openings to be excited about, one of our favorites, Sweetgreen, had yet to set an opening date for their new Rittenhouse location. But looks like things have changed! Read more »
Well, this is pretty stinkin’ awesome. In addition to our pre-work runners’ party, which we’ll tell you about in a bit (Spoiler: We’ll be showering you with free food and drink from Mamma Chia, Bai5, Trader Joe’s and more), we just received word that the fine folks at Sweetgreen are offering free salads to anyone who participates in Run to Work Day on Friday. How’s that for incentive? Read more »
