If you are even slightly health-nutish, Los Angeles will be like being in a culinary Disney World for you. Brimming with health stores, juice and smoothie bars, and vegan/organic/gluten-free eateries (you name it, they got it), there is no way you will ever get bored if you’re trying to eat healthy here. These three restaurants I would recommend to anyone in L.A. who wants to eat healthy and have AH-mazing food. Because if it’s not delicious, who wants it? Amiright?!
This vegan Mexican restaurant (love the concept!) first opened in San Francisco in 2009 and then in West Hollywood in 2014. The food is inspired by the kitchens of Mexico and the nurturing energy of mothers. It features a seasonally-conscious menu sourced from locally grown, 100 percent organic ingredients. There’s a fabulous outdoor patio surrounded by trees. The indoor space was also gorgeous, with high ceilings, crisp white décor, a beautiful wooden bar, and Mexican tile. Recommended dishes here are the butternut squash flautas, the guacamole (obviously), the coliflor frito (cauliflower, cashew cheese, and lemon appetizer), and the tacos. The drink list is also quite impressive, and I’ve heard great things about the not very Mexican brownie on the dessert list.
