As we continue to live in a world of lockdowns and social distancing, let’s face it, we’ve all had more than our share of not-so-healthy meals. Whether it’s the snack aisle at the grocery store or a meal ordered via our favorite delivery app, it’s far easier to eat the unhealthy stuff, but it doesn’t have to be. So, with your waistline in mind, here are three local restaurants that specialize in healthy (and tasty) meals for dine-in, carry-out, or delivery. (Note: In a world of COVID, dine-in options are always subject to change. Please check with the establishments before attempting to dine in.)
We’re starting off strong with Pita Jungle. Don’t let the name fool you. Their name may start with Pita, but it doesn’t end there. This location has the most expansive menu on this list. Salads, pita wraps, healthy burgers, wood-fired pizzas, smoothies, desserts – and that’s just for starters! Boutique wines, locally brewed beers, and crafted cocktails are available for dine-in customers, as is the happy hour menu ($2 tapas!).
A self described, “health-conscious seafood restaurant with a south pacific flair” Ahipoki Bowl is guilt-free decadence with a mouthwatering menu. Like any poke restaurant, you choose a base, sauce, protein, and then toppings. An already healthy meal is made even healthier with kelp noodle and organic salad options for your base.
Local Juicery believes your food shouldn’t just be good for you, but it should make you feel good, too. Their menu consists of fully organic food and juices designed to cleanse your body of toxins and contribute to your overall health. If you’re looking for a diet overhaul, Local Juicery has the information, meals and helpful staff you need. While you can order non-perishable items online, unfortunately Local Juicery does dine-in and pickup meals only – no delivery.
