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.
True Food Kitchen
This restaurant sounds healthy from the get-go, as its name is meant to reflect the seasonal, nutritious, health-conscious dishes on the menu. In other words, the food served here is always real (or “true”), just as nature intended. No additives, unhealthy ingredients that sacrifice nutrition for taste, or bad quality produce is used here. Only the freshest foods available are part of the flavorful menu that caters to as many healthy eaters as possible, including gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, and of course, organic meals. Signature dishes include the spaghetti squash casserole, the Inside Out quinoa burger, hearty bowls, healthy pizzas, and delicious, guilt-free desserts. Just like the food, the cocktails are seasonal and made with fresh-pressed fruit and vegetable juices (just because you’re drinking alcohol it doesn’t mean you can’t do it right! Right?).
