One of my favorite local blogs, The Houstonist, posted a great article yesterday about local health food restaurants around town. A couple years ago my hometown of Houston was named the fattest city in the country 2 years running!! Since then, as a city, great efforts have been made to get our name as detached from this not-so honored status. The article highlights some amazing restaurants around town that are dedicated to maintaining a more stellar reputation. Texans as a whole eat out more than any other state, but until recently, it has been very difficult to find a decent health food restaurant. Even the salad bars are packed with calories!
Most of the restaurants listed in this article I have heard of or seen popping up around town. I have decided to go on a healthy restaurant tour. I will visit each one and post pictures and reviews. What I am really curious to find out is if any of these restaurants will be kid-friendly. So often restaurants are not kid-friendly in general and the kids menu is nothing but pasta, fried food, and sugar. So, that will definitely be something I will be looking for as part of my review.
