Happy February, Mamas! If you’re anything like me, you are on detox from all the treats you consumed over Christmas and the Holidays and by now, your diet may or may not be going well. I love eating healthy; I just feel better. But sometimes, I don’t feel like chopping vegetables all.day.long.
Here are a few TERRIFIC, healthy restaurants in and around Austin where you can dine-in or take out a meal or two. Bonus: No dish-washing afterwards!
Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten-free options available, this Asian Fusion Restaurant features delicacies like dairy-free creamy carrot soup, Ahi tuna and smoked salmon.
A Go-to for my hubby and me when we don’t feel like cooking and want something healthy, fresh, fast and delicious. My favorite salad is the Bonnie Parker with grilled chicken, apples, craisins, big pieces of smoked cheddar cheesed and PECANS on top of mixed greens with Smoky Cider Vinaigrette; Fun Fact: the salad recipe was actually created by its namesake!
A casual, healthy spot in the Domain and downtown that serves whole foods, including lots of veggies and vegan options. They even have cocktails and desserts!
A relaxed eatery with locations in the Arboretum and on Burnet Rd. with build-your-own bowls LOADED with grains of your choice, responsibly-sourced proteins, and lots of veggies! Also available: Kombucha and wine.
An award-winning, farm-to-table eatery in Round Rock. Picture, good-for-you soul-food! Plus, it is a small, local business, so all the more reason to support! This is a crowd pleaser for the whole family!
100% of the food here is made from scratch! It is all 100% gluten, peanut and soy free, with other allergens clearly marked, and it is 100% DELICIOUS. They believe in conscious ingredients, REAL food and good vibes, and they even have diet-specific menus to make your choices easier. They also have cocktails, coffee, tea, and non-alcoholic, healthful elixirs such as their turmeric tonic.
Bowls, grains, greens and wraps in a beautiful but casual spot. Everything on the Flower Child menu is made from scratch, using local, farm-fresh ingredients. Vegan, paleo, gluten-free options are, of course, available!
