It’s a new year. A perfect time to change your lifestyle for two-to-three weeks before reverting to your old habits. One permanent change you can make is eating healthier. The easiest way to do that is to find healthy food that is still delicious. How do you know which places are looking out for your body and your taste buds? ScottsdaleRestaurants.com, of course. Here are five spots you can go to eat healthier in the New Year.
We’re going to start off with an obvious choice and one of our favorites. It’s easy to eat healthy at Farm & Craft because they gear their whole menu to a healthy lifestyle. They also open at 8:00 a.m. every day so whether you want breakfast, lunch or dinner, you can eat better.
What to order: Treat yourself to a little surf ‘n’ turf. Start with the smoked salmon toast – which Chris featured on ABC15. Then for your main course, go with the Tocoa Steak Bowl. It has grass-fed steak, organic farro, fresh corn, baby heirloom tomato, sweet potato, black beans, caramelized onions, cilantro vegan slaw & avocado. That is a LOT of goodness in one dish. Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean eating less. It can just mean eating smarter.

Another easy place to make smart, but yummy decisions. Modern Market is spreading like wildfire across America by delivering farm-fresh, sustainable foods to its guests. They’re also open at 8:00 a.m. so if you’re in Scottsdale, you have multiple options to start your day right.
What to order: If you’re flying solo, skip the pizza. They taste too good, and you may find that you ate the whole thing. If you have a partner with you, go with the “M’Rita.” Not too much sodium, too many carbs or calories. There’s also plenty of protein to keep you feeling full. When you are eating for one, the Lemongrass Pulled Pork is a great option. Get it with a side of Umami Brussel Sprouts, and you can feel great about your meal.

This is where it can begin to get difficult if you’re not used to making healthy choices at restaurants. Pho, a Vietnamese street food, generally consists of broth, rice noodles, a protein plus spices, and vegetables. Sounds pretty healthy! But certain meat options can get you in trouble here if you don’t choose properly. Also, there are delicious distractions like tacos and burritos that can really send you off the rails if you’re not careful.
What to order: The Medicine Man. The house pho broth with Bandido chicken and veggies. You’ll get plenty of flavor and can walk away feeling good about your choice. If you want something a little more, get some edamame for an appetizer.

Foosia Asia Fresh
Similar to other fast-casual concepts in design, at Foosia you build your meal as you go. Start with your base (rice, noodles, etc.), pick a protein, and so on. The possibilities are almost endless, and there are a lot of healthy combinations you can create.
What to order: There are just too many good options to narrow it down. I want to say crispy tofu since it’s my personal favorite, but it is deep-fried so… maybe not.

Kale & Clover
Whenever I walk into Kale & Clover, I already feel like I accomplished something healthy. The vibe there just screams, “good decisions!!” They have a little bit of everything from appetizers to combo platters to bowls and sandwiches.
What to order: Anything but The Cheat Day Cheeseburger. Whatever you choose though, start with the Cauliflower ‘Wings’. You’ll thank me for it.
