While hot chicken and taco restaurants have seemingly popped up everywhere over the past year, many of us are still only wanting to indulge in these types of treats more sparingly and find more healthy food nearby.
Fortunately, several health conscious spots have opened in Collin County as well. While the list of all the healthful options in the county could go on and on, we’ve decided to break them up for you city-by-city. Here are five of our favorites near you in Plano!
