4 Healthy Restaurants In North San Antonio
Being health conscious is an important part of living a balanced lifestyle. It is also an important part of preventative medicine, including preventative dentistry! Your diet plays a huge role in your body’s overall function, a well as your oral health. While the traditional American diet isn’t very healthy, many of our patients are committing to eating healthier. Eating healthy often involves cooking a majority of your meals at home. However, sometimes we all need a night out to eat, or a quick meal on the go. This is why we love being a part of this amazing San Antonio community. There are a variety of restaurants that you can visit without breaking your diet. Here are some of our favorites and what we recommend…
Papouli’s Greek Grill
Traditionally Greek food is considered pretty healthy, and Papouli’s is no exception! We highly recommend their hummus and dolmas as appetizers. The best part of eating here is that they have both build-your-own plates and pitas! So you can customize your healthy meal. If you’re not feeling too creative, they also have some of our tried and true favorites. These options include grilled salmon fillet, Greek lasagna, vegetarian moussaka, falafel pita, and even a great combo lunch special. If you’re a fan of Mediterranean food, you’re going to love these healthy meals.
Some days are just salad days! For those meals, we recommend heading to Huebner Oaks Shopping Center and visiting Salata. They are they self-proclaimed next generation salad bar! With over fifty toppings and ten house-made dressings, they are a salad bar like no other. Whether you love chicken, steak, shrimp, or prefer vegetarian this is the salad bar for you. Every combination we’ve tried has been excellent, and we have no doubt that your experiences will be the same! We also recommend trying their white bean soup!
Green Vegetarian Cuisine
While we know that most of our patients love meat, we have yet to hear a carnivore (or omnivore) complain about the exquisite vegetarian cuisine located in Alon Market! Green has been one of our favorite local restaurants since they opened their doors. In fact, Dr. Klenke eats at Green (and gets it to go) nearly every week because it’s that good! Not only is the food healthy, but there is also a vast variety of dishes to choose from, including eggplant parmesan, spinach mushroom enchiladas, “fish” n chips, and even a Mediterranean bowl! Plus they have a selection of burgers, sandwiches, burritos, and also smoothies!
Located close to I-10 and Huebner Road, this gluten-free heaven is more than your average bakery! In fact, they even offer a selection of on-the-go meals, such as spicy street tacos, turkey burger with sweet potato fries, bbq pulled pork, and even french toast. Plus they also have gluten-free pizza crusts! Their menu includes a variety of dietary options including gluten-free, dairy-free, egg free, and vegan. They also carry traditional bakery items, as well as custom order cakes. Powerhouse Bakery is a popular suggestion for our gluten-free and paleo patients.
At Wurzbach Parkway Family Dental, we know how important your diet is to your oral health. We also understand that many of our patients live busy lives and don’t have the time to cook every meal at home. This is why we believe part of our jobs as your family’s dental care providers is to share mouth healthy tips, including a few of our favorite local health conscious places to eat! If you enjoy these suggestions let us know and we’ll be sure to give more in the future.
