We’ve all heard myths about foods that we should and shouldn’t eat: eggs are okay one day and bad for you the next. Red meat? Forget about it. And don’t even get us started on the term “organic.”
In the celebration of April Fools’ Day, we’re clarifying some of the biggest myths, so you’ll know once and for all which foods are beneficial and which to stay away from.

As a tribute to the return of arugula, May’s seasonal salad features the spicy green and mesclun with a local mix of crisp, raw asparagus from Godfrey Farms (MD), strawberries from Virginia and North Carolina, sunflower seeds, feta cheese from Mountain View Farms (VA), a sprinkle of fresh mint from Arc Greenhouse (NJ), and our homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Now that it’s May, it finally feels and tastes like spring!
The May salad was debuted at Sweetlife Festival in our pop-up sweetgreen store. The store was constructed in 2 days by Staach, the millworker and furniture provider for sweetgreen UPenn and Foggy Bottom (coming soon). It was built with reclaimed silver pine on the posts with FSC radiata white pine.
