Soup and Salad Skirmish: St. Francis vs. Carly's

On the quest for a light and healthy lunch, there are many hurdles to overcome -- the convenience of fast food, the breakroom doughnut box, and even the fatty richness of artisanal local joints. One of our go-to lunches is the soup and salad combo, which gives the energy you need to finish the workday without hindering your progress toward a pool-worthy bod. There's a lot of variety possible with this mix and match, but two local restaurants serve our favorite soup and salad plates.
