Whether you want to move your body or munch on good calories to keep you powered up, Elkhart County’s restaurant and attractions offer many chances to get active and eat healthy.

Good eats



The Moringa Tree in downtown Elkhart is a one-stop shop for tasty salads, sandwiches, juices and smoothies, all made with organic ingredients. Stop by and sign up for nutritional counseling and wellness programs.

We love to order up fresh fruit smoothies at The Electric Brew’s locations in downtown Goshen and Elkhart.

Psst! If you’ve been good, feel free to reward yourself with a chocolatey bite from Veni’s Sweet Shop in Nappanee.
