- Healthy Restaurants in Scottsdale -

Scottsdale and the surrounding areas have no shortage of great restaurants. Today, I wanted to highlight some of the ones that serve healthy fare, without sacrificing taste.

  • Kale and Clover Mindful Kitchen - Kale and Clover launched a couple of years ago in North Scottsdale. The menu is thoughtful and features flavors from all over the globe. There are curries, a "faux pho," Bolognese, jambalaya and so much more. A broad offering of appetizers, salads, entrée and handhelds (aka. sandwiches and wraps, etc.) are on the menu. Kale and Clover serves lunch and dinner daily. Grab-and-go breakfasts are available during the weekdays and full breakfasts are available during the weekend.
    • Location: 20511 N Hayden Rd., Scottsdale, AZ 85255


  • Tryst Cafe - Tryst Cafe in the Desert Ridge area is another place to get a healthy and satisfying meal. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. There are also Happy Hour specials. They focus on organic food and try to source as many local products as possible. Indoor and patio dining are available.
    • Location: Shade at Desert Ridge, 21050 N Tatum Blvd #108, Phoenix, AZ 85050


  • True Food Kitchen True Food has been a dominant force in the healthy but tasty restaurant scene for many years. Originally set in the Biltmore, it has now expanded across the United States. Although healthy ingredients are the main focus, they want you to leave satisfied from a flavorful and filling meal. Two of my favorite dishes at True Food Kitchen are the kale salad and the sspaghetti squash casserole.
    • Locations: Scottsdale Quarter - 15191 N Scottsdale Rd #101, Scottsdale, AZ 85254 & Biltmore - Camelback and 24th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85106


  • Fresh Mint - Fresh Mint is a vegetarian restaurant right near the Scottsdale Airpark that adds Vietnamese and Asian flavors and techniques to the dishes. They offer vegetarian, vegan and Kosher meals. Curries, pad thai, kabobs and so much more are offered. Fresh Mint is worth a visit. It is open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday.
    • Location: 13802 N Scottsdale Rd, Suite 161, Scottsdale, AZ 85254


These are some of my picks. Do you have any favorites that you like to visit? Feel free to add them in the comments section!
