Where To Eat Healthy In Dallas: Mudhen Meat and Greens

IMG_9273

As long as I’ve lived in Dallas, it has been a mission of mine to find the healthiest ways to eat out around town. When I heard that there would be a new veggie-centric restaurant opening attached to the farmers market, I marked my calendar and patiently awaited it’s arrival. It has only been open a few weeks and I can embarrassingly admit that I’ve tried almost 1/4 of their seasonal menu already. This restaurant is any health-nut’s dream come true. With an abundant amount of vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian, and paleo options; Mudhen Meat and Greens is officially my new favorite restaurant in town.  (more…)



Pumpkin Apple Pie Protein Smoothie

PumpkinSmoothie2It’s officially my absolute favorite time of the year! The leaves are falling and the crisp smell of Autumn is in the air! Those last brutal summer months are over and it’s feeling chilly enough for a light sweater and a pumpkin spice latte. I love the feeling October brings; there’s excitement in the air with Halloween decorations on every porch and the holiday season just beginning. My cabinets are officially stocked with cans of pumpkin puree for whatever holiday recipe I decide to make next. I celebrated the start of October with my favorite smoothie recipe, my Pumpkin Apple Pie Protein Smoothie! This delicious smoothie is so tasty, you will think you’re eating a dessert for breakfast! It’s quick, easy, and very good for you! (more…)

Anytime I’m feeling a bit gross, run down, or bloated it’s typically due to the food I’ve been eating, especially after a vacation! I was in major need of a cleanse this week and turned to Suja’s 3-day fresh start juice cleanse from Costco. I have seen this little box at Costco before for only $30, and once I decided to try it, it was already gone from the store! They go quickly so when I saw them on the shelves over the weekend, I scooped one up immediately! Don’t worry though if you don’t have a Costco membership, they sell a different Suja juice cleanse at Target as well if you’re interested in their products! After 3 days, I’ve lost 1.5 lbs and feel lighter and ready for the weekend. Here’s my recap of the meals, juices, and experience!

Where to eat healthy in Dallas: Yucatan Taco Stand

Let’s all be honest with ourselves, the best part about Dallas is the food. The only thing any of us ever plan, or look forward to, is going out to brunch for bottomless mimosas or happy hour to get chips and salsa with a margarita on the side. Moving to lower Greenville turned my restaurant outings into a very regular occasion, especially now that it’s patio weather. All of the extra calories one can consume in a normal serving at a restaurant can be problematic though. I’ve made it my goal to do some research, dig up a little dirt on these popular restaurants, and figure out who actually has healthy options for those of us not looking to pack on the extra lbs.
