Healthy Places to Kick Off Your Resolutions

Thu, 4th Feb 2016

New year, new you! Now that the holidays are over, it's time to get healthy again and what better place to start than at a healthy dining joint! After all, weeks of unhealthy eating and drinking take its toll on the body and mind, but that doesn't mean your taste buds need to suffer. These healthy dining joints make it easy to kick off your resolution to start the year off eating tasty, fresh, healthy foods.

  Ki's Restaurant - Cardiff by the Sea
With breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, this rooftop restaurant in Cardiff by the Sea is the perfect place to watch the sunset while noshing on delectable, fresh, whole foods that are organic or naturally raised. The Sunset Menu lets you choose a starter, entree and dessert for one price.Start with the Hummus Plate, and then try the Miso Salmon, a pan seared Salmon drizzled with a Miso glaze and served with Cauliflower Puree and Tempura Eggplant. Stay on the healthier track and order the Carrot Cake, the perfect way to top off a great-tasting, healthy meal. Tip: live music on Friday nights!

Tender Greens - Point Loma (Liberty Station) location
Ok, so it's a chain restaurant, but, it's a different kind of chain restaurant, one that values healthy foods served in a relaxed atmosphere. This casual, healthy dining joint features fresh, healthy foods from ingredients that come from small local farmers and ranchers. Try the Happy Vegan Salad and try not to smile! Featuring Farrro Wheat with Cranberry and Hazelnuts, Quinoa with Cucumber and Beets, Green Hummus, Tabbouleh and Baby Greens, the Happy Vegan Salad is poised to make even non-vegans taste buds delight in joy.

Garden Kitchen - Rolando
Farm to table goodness, that's what you can expect at Garden Kitchen in Rolando. With a daily changing menu, the food here is fresh, sustainable, and made from scratch. With a name like Garden Kitchen you might think it's just salad on the menu, wrong! Sure the salads are amazing, such as the Grilled Wax Bean Salad, but so are the many creative dishes served,  such as the Squash Noodles with Burnt Tomato and Arugula with Blue Cheese and Walnuts and the NY Strip Steak over Cauliflower Puree with Roasted Carrots and Compound Butter. Tip: since the menu changes daily, make sure to check out the menu online.

Local Greens - Solana Beach
First off, this place is small, tucked away in a strip mall next to a Subway, but the difference between the two is like night and day! The Custom Creation Menu let's you create your own healthy meal starting with a greens or grain option, such as Organic Kale and Organic Quinoa and Rice.  . Next, you choose up to 4 ingredients such as Raw Beets, Organic Flax, Organic Carrots and Chow Mein Noodles. From there you choose 1 Premium ingredient option that ranges from Grass Fed Steak, Organic Grilled Tofu and Roasted Chicken. Top it all off with a Homemade Dressing, such as Organic Yogurt Cucumber Raita or the Tahini Citrus Vinaigrette.
