When you think about food in Texas, your mind may initially think of BBQ and big steaks. But don’t be fooled by the carnivorous Texas folk, there are plenty of delicious and healthy options where your food won’t be doused in BBQ sauce – though that’s also a yummy option. Since the state of Texas is huge, we narrowed our search and looked into the nutritious options Houston has to offer, and were definitely not disappointed. Here are three restaurants every health-conscious foodie is definitely going to want to check out.
Named one of the best vegan restaurants in the US by Food & Wine, Green Seed Vegan’s menu is 100 percent vegan and soy free, and also offers countless gluten-free options. The bread in all their fresh-pressed paninis and sandwiches can be replaced with brown rice or collard wraps, or be served over a bed of microgreens. The fun and appetizing fillings in these “handheld delights” include buckwheat quinoa patties and BBQ jackfruit, and this can all be served with fun sides and add-ons like cauliflower nuggets, seasonal kale chips, or raw zucchini bacon. Speaking of “raw”, there are several options for raw food eaters on the menu, including a hemp nut burger, tacos made with coconut cilantro tortillas, and a bowl of zucchini, yam, and kelp noodles with almond sauce. As would be expected from such a health-focused eatery, cold-pressed juices, smoothies, elixirs, health shots, and gluten-free vegan desserts also abound.
This place is full of healthy, handmade meals for busy people on all kinds of special diets. If you don’t have the time or patience to cook at home or wait for food to be prepared at a regular restaurant, Snap Kitchen is the place to find plenty of options made using great ingredients which are thoroughly labeled. You will know if your meal is vegetarian, vegan, paleo, contains nuts, dairy, soy, gluten, and more. Whatever your food preference, you will find many things to enjoy here from breakfast all the way to dinner.
