13 Dallas Spots for Healthy Foods That Don't Suck
|Whoever Romi is, I bet she's skinny.|
There's this lovely salad I like to order at Urban Taco called the Romi. I get it with grilled snapper on top and call it a day. It has slices of creamy avocado, pepitas and a lovely vinaigrette. Just try to resist the cojito, Urban Taco's seductive coconut mojito.
|Peppers pep up your metabolism!|
A healthy taco? You lie! But it's true; the taco place with the terrible name I can't say without thinking of a desperate housewife in a Juicy tracksuit serves one heck of a lettuce-wrapped gem called the Ahi Poke. Asian in persuasion, this taco is spicy, crunchy and light. Plus, it doesn't really go with anything else on the menu, so I recommend ordering a couple and getting out of there before the elotes find you.
3. Zoe's Kitchen
Chock full of families, Zoe makes lunch and dinner items with a Greek slant and fresh disposition. I'm a big fan of the "gruben", a sandwich featuring turkey, delicious feta slaw, spicy mustard and Swiss cheese on grilled rye. I recommend pairing it with their braised white beans. Part soup, part side dish, these healthy beans will warm you through and through.
2. Company Cafe
foodbitch Resolve to eat more local greens this year
Company Cafe has plenty for vegetarians, gluten haters and those who prefer their eggs from uncaged chickens. But the cafe also happens to serve my favorite non-disappointing salad. The tomato burrata salad comes as a pile of organic greens topped with Lemley's tomatoes, pesto, balsamic reduction and a soft round of creamy burrata.
1. DIVE Coastal Cuisine
foodbitch Dive into this delicious tuna wrap
If you can handle the hustle and bustle of Highland Park moms and their nannies, make your way to DIVE for their ahi tuna wrap, which is an incredible way to grab a protein-filled, healthy lunch. A spinach tortilla envelops coconut rice, seared tuna and delicious slaw. Enjoy it dipped in a sweet chile sauce or vinegar-laden soy and thank me later. Lighten up even more and save half for dinner.
Those babies should get you started on your merry way to Resolution Town. Enjoy, and may you never have to settle for a disappointing salad again, my friends. Happy New Year.
