Healthy Restaurants In Austin

Brunch Spots in Austin-07

True Food Kitchen

Gorgeous, delicious, and upscale - this is a great place to go for a healthy lunch in Austin! I’ve eaten here with friends who have strict diets they have to stick to, and True Food Kitchen has been so accommodating. It’s a pretty easy menu to find something for everyone.

By the way, I know that most of the restaurants on this list are fast-casual lunch spots, but True Food is slightly more upscale if you'd like a healthy Austin dinner restaurants with a server.

What to order: Ancient Grains Bowl (miso sesame glazed sweet potato, turmeric, charred onion, snap pea, grilled portobello, avocado, hemp seed)

Juiceland

There are Juiceland locations everywhere in Austin, so it’s an easy choice if you need a vegan restaurant in Austin! You can get pretty much any fresh-pressed juice or smoothie that you want, but don’t forget about turning the smoothies into bowls! If you need a real meal (like lunch), I’ve found that ordering the Originator smoothie as a bowl is a great option. I’m forced to eat it more slowly, and the crunchy/fruity toppings make it feel more like a real meal than a smoothie with a straw.

What to order: they have a special smoothie every day that’s discounted...check that first!

Honest Mary's

If you want some quick and healthy food in Austin, you’re going to LOVE Honest Mary’s! It’s a fast-casual eatery that uses fresh ingredients and gets the food to you quickly. Most of their bowls can be made paleo-friendly, if you wish. Or just fill your bowl with delicious gluten-free grains, protein, yummy veggies, and superfood toppings to fit your lifestyle.

What to order: Sedona Lime bowl with Basmati Rice, Organic Spinach, Black Beans, Texas Sweet Potatoes, Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, Cashew Lime Crema Sauce (I like adding the hormone-free steak)
