Here are six healthy restaurants in our area to try out in 2022.
We’re so glad to be in 2022. January is always special to me because we’re ending one year and beginning another, and it’s like you’re getting a fresh start. Here at High Performance Real Estate Advisors, we aim for growth—not just professionally, but personally too, and not just mentally, but physically as well. With that in mind, we’re sharing Where To Go In Charlotte if you’re into healthy food:
Clean Juice is one of my favorite places; it changed my life. In January 2021, I was about 30 pounds heavier than I am right now, and I credit much of my weight loss to Clean Juice because they kept me focused in the morning with a good meal, like “the intense one,” a juice that includes kale, avocados, spinach, lemon, apples, and all kinds of all-natural good stuff for you. I also like the lemon juice they offer that has turmeric and a few other things in it. Additionally, they have excellent food, including wraps, sandwiches, special toasts, and more.
“We aim for growth—not just professionally, but personally too.”
Clean Juice is a faith-based organization that was founded right here in Charlotte in 2014 by Landon and Kat Eckles. They’ve now expanded to around 100 locations in 16 states. You won’t regret checking out Clean Juice, and they’re all over the Charlotte region. I’m just going to sip my intense one before we head to the next location…
Gréco Fresh Grille is a local Charlotte chain known for delicious and quick Greek food. With seven locations from Fort Mill to South Park to Matthews, it’s a fantastic place for a greek salad or a gyro with hummus, which is my favorite.
Next up is Kid Cashew, located in Dillworth. This is an awesome place to order cocktails and small plates to share or get delicious salads, soups, and organic burgers just for you. A couple of interesting menu items are the wood-fire grilled Spanish octopus and the Impossible ‘burger’ gyro.
Luna’s Living Kitchen is located in Southend and completely vegetarian, but don’t let that stop you from visiting if you’re not usually a fan of that. I most enjoyed the lentil chili bowl and the flatbread. You won’t even miss the meat, I promise.
We can’t finish our healthy restaurant roundup without mentioning Yafo Kitchen, another great Greek option with three locations in the area, and Flower Child, a nationwide chain that emphasizes fresh ingredients. You have to try the salmon and sweet potatoes!
All these restaurants are just the tip of the iceberg (lettuce, get it?). There are many other places in Charlotte to find a tasty, healthy meal. I look forward to growing with you in 2022.

Insurance is another offering we have to make the client experience great.
The last few months, we’ve been talking about the ancillary products that we offer to make the client experience that much better. These include our real estate services of buying, selling, and investing; our wide variety of mortgage loans and refinancing options; and our down payment assistance to help buyers. However, my favorite is our insurance.
Today I have a special guest, Jeremy Muldrow. We call him Dr. Insurance. He’s our agent in charge of We Insure Carolina. Here are three reasons why you should give us an opportunity to quote your insurance:
We Insure Carolina is actually a brokerage. That means we have access to over 350 carriers.
We work for you, not the insurance companies.
If you have it, we can insure it. That includes business, primary and secondary homes, auto, RV, life, and health.
Here are three big advantages of in-housemortgage services.
In our industry, the biggest issue is always communication. That’s why we brought our mortgage services in-house; this way, you always know your agent and your lender are on the same page. Today we’re talking with “Closing-day K”, our new loan officer for our mortgage division, about three benefits to using an in-house lender:
“Everyone is busy; that’s why we work around your schedule.”
1. We offer a personalized experience that fits your schedule. A lot of big-box lenders are open from nine to five, but that doesn’t work for everyone. We will work weekends and around your needs to make sure everything gets done on time.
2. We will shop around for you. Everyone’s busy; the last thing you want to do is shop around for the best lender. We have many great local lenders in our portfolio, and we get you the best deal possible by making them compete for your business.
3. We will advocate for you during the process. This is like bringing a mechanic to a used car lot. We know exactly what lenders are looking for, so we know all the tricks to get you a fantastic deal.
If you have any questions about our new mortgage division or how K can help you, please call or email us. We’ll see you at the closing table!
Today I want to highlight one of my favorite places to eat in the Charlotte area that’s sure to have something you like, whatever you’re into: Optimist Hall.
Located just past Uptown near North Davidson, Optimist Hall is the Charlotte area’s newest and largest food hall, with fantastic indoor and outdoor seating and complimentary Wi-Fi. It’s a great place to focus yourself on the work week ahead or gather with friends for happy hour or brunch.
Optimist Hall has 21 different food and drink stalls with every type of food you or your family could ever imagine. If you’re obsessed with sushi but the rest of your family isn’t, don’t worry—here, you can get some of the best sushi around while your family visits the taco stalls.
If you’re trying to find a quiet place to work, you can start your day by coming here when Undercurrent Coffee opens at 7 a.m. Then you can work hard until lunch and come and take a well-deserved break with some delicious Mexican food and duckpin bowling at el Thrifty. (el Thrifty is where our company had our Christmas party last year, and I have to say that it was awesome. They had golf simulators, basketball, shuffleboard, and even Pong!) Then you can finish your day strong before clocking out at five to enjoy a local North Carolina beer from Fonta Flora or a fancy cocktail at Billy Sunday’s.
Optimist Hall has it all.
If for some crazy reason you decided to eat before you came here, you can work up an appetite by checking out some of the local vendors who aren’t focused on food. For example, there’s a beautiful paper store called Archer Paper Goods that can inspire anyone to pick up journaling, or at least give you a good chuckle while browning their hand-printed cards section. Also, be sure to check out the latest addition to Optimist Hall, Paradisio, which is a plant paradise for anyone who has or aspires to have a green thumb.
As you can see, Optimist Hall has it all. I personally love coming here; I make a stop at least once a week, and I highly recommend that you check it out.
If you have any questions about real estate, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’d love to help you. Happy Thanksgiving!
