Best Healthy Eats in Houston

4.23.2017

Both BYOB and noticeably less greasy than your standard Chinese fare, Cooking Girl (now Pepper Twins) is a winner. 
On my mission to find the best food in Houston, I'm strict in making my selections so that only the very best make the final cut. I'm accumulating a list, and from there, finding common themes to form these posts.

Here we have Houston's healthy-ish eats. Though our healthy food scene isn't as robust as that of an Austin or San Francisco, it's making a solid effort to keep the growing healthy appetites happy.


brussels sprouts :: Crispy Brussels Sprouts -Benjy's 
notes: The sauce and perfectly tender consistency set these apart.

cauliflower :: The Famous Fried Cauliflower -Roost
notes: It actually moves (with bonito flakes), which at first sight is frightening, but at first bite, you'll be sold.



green beans :: Dry Fried Green Beans -Pepper Twins
notes: The portion is plentiful, but you'll find it hard not to polish off your plate.

sweet potatoes :: Ancient Grain Bowl -True Food Kitchen 
notes: They're miso glazed and the star of this ancient grain bowl show.

smoothie :: The Wundershowzen -Juiceland
notes: WD loves him a Veggie Kingdom, and my bestie Merl always orders the Originator.


salad bar :: The Moroccan -Central Market
notes: My favorite's got mixed greens, chickpeas, cucumber, falafel, lentils, peas & apricots in a curry dressing.  


falafel :: Beet Falafel Plate -Ripe Cuisine
notes: This food truck takes the cake for all things vegan, but their beet falafel hummus plate is insane.


veggie sandwich :: The Garden Sammie -Local Foods
notes: Wash it down with the heavenly honey iced coffee. 

Here's to a happy and healthy week ahead!
