Eating out can be a real treat, but many restaurants feature dishes that ring in at over 1,000 calories each, which means your waistline and favorite skinny jeans aren’t always the ones to thank you afterward. However, you don’t always have to sacrifice taste for health—here we’ve rounded up a few local spots that are both delicious and that use the freshest, healthiest ingredients.
Known around town for offering delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes, Lovin’ Spoonfuls is more than just a great place for herbivores. Owner Peg Raisglid knows that some vegetarian meals out there are simply too low on protein, which is why you may sometimes find yourself leaving veggie-filled fare only to be hungry again an hour later. Raisglid presents a solution with plenty of vegetarian proteins. But Lovin’ Spoonfuls meals aren’t just good for you, they taste great too. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, featuring delicious items such as the Mediterranean Scramble, Asian Rice Bowl and Green Chili Polenta. www.lovinspoonfuls.com.
