Its great to indulge every now and then, but it is even better when the food is good for you. San Antonio is filled with great restaurants that are healthy and #instaworthy. We have put together a list of our favorite spots to eat healthy in town!
5 Points Local recently opened its doors and we are completely obsessed with the food and the all around good vibes. Two large community tables greet you when you enter 5 Points Local and an open kitchen with tasty scents that capture you on the spot. The cafe offers indulgent, affordable and healthy menu options crafted from 100% locally sourced and gluten-free ingredients. If you’re able to get past the kitchen area, you’ll find an open space with vintage style chairs, round tables and a wooden table with the words LOCAL etched into it. Upstairs is the yoga studio, patiently waiting to lift you up and take away all your worries. 5 Points Local offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. 5 Points Local’s coffee shop is opened on Monday from 7 to 11 a.m., the full kitchen and coffee shop is available Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m to 8 p.m. and Sunday’s from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Clean Plate in central downtown San Antonio made the list for a quick and healthy lunch spot. Beautifully colored photos of landscapes and abstract paintings decorate the walls, as well as a sticker that says “Buy fresh, buy local”.
The lunch menu at The Clean Plate, located at 1022 N Main Ave., consists of grass-fed beef burgers, fire roasted veggie sandwiches, fish tacos and Loncito’s Ham Sammie – rosemary ciabatta, pork, caramelized onions, Parmesan and honey-dijon. The Clean Plate is open for lunch Monday and Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Join them for dinner Wednesday through Saturday from 5 to 10 p.m.
I fell in love with falafel at Green Vegetarian. With that being said, when I eat at Green, I stick to the crowd favorite Mediterranean bowl. The Mediterranean Bowl is so colorful, there is no question you are eating all the right things. Quinoa, kale salad, tzatziki, green olives, falafel patties, cucumbers, tomato, carrots, dolmas, and pecan hummus, all served up in a whole wheat tortilla. This dish is large enough to share between two people, or keep it all to yourself! And don’t forget to grab a vegan cupcake on the way out! Visit Green Vegetarian at two locations in San Antonio! Find them at The Pearl, 200 E Grayson St, Suite 120 or Alon at 10003 NW Military, Suite 2115.
Señor Veggie has a wide variety of vegan items like the black bean nachos, beet burger, and raw pad thai. I tried the good karma bowl, a beautifully displayed dish of kale, sprouts, quinoa, black beans and tempeh – a traditional soy product. The bright orange building and friendly staff made it clear why Señor Veggie is a San Antonio favorite for healthy eating. Of course, dining at Señor Veggie would not be complete without its homemade desserts! Señor Veggie, located on 620 S Presa, is open Tuesday – Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
