Resolutions: 10 Cheap Ways to Get Healthy in Memphis Posted by Holly Whitfield | January 3rd 2011 2105 0 Share this Post Email This Post Author: Holly Whitfield I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

BBQ? They do it best here, certainly, but it’s still just basically candy meat served on refined white flour. If you know of any places around town that offer truly healthy alternatives (low carb is even better!), I’d love to hear about them. So far, I only know of a tiny few, and I don’t want to burn out on eating at the same places all the time.

Reply grant says: January 4, 2011 at 1:59 pm Hayley- not only is the Greenline paved, but it’s as smooth as butter. Reply anna rich says: January 6, 2011 at 11:19 am hey, Michelle. There is a new place out east that is called Humdingers. The food is great, it is relatively inexpensive. They serve lots of fish dishes and have wonderful asian slaw (not the kind slathered in mayo). You might want to try it. I am hoping they will eventually open in Midtown. There are only two locations in Memphis now. One in Cordova and one at Kirby and Poplar. Hope you try it and like it. Reply Sarah says: January 6, 2011 at 3:31 pm No Flipside videos?!??!
