Best Healthy Eats in Downtown Austin, Texas

Having a blast exploring Austin... and its endless food options. I’ve been pretty good about sticking to my regular healthy eating routine, and luckily Austin has a ton of healthy restaurants to choose from. 

Forthright Cafe

For breakfast, try Forthright Cafe on Brazos Street. They serve simple, quality food, from scratch. I opted for this delicious gluten free bread to accompany my poached egg and avocado, and it was so good. Add some crushed red pepper and pumpkin seeds, and it’s avocado toast perfection!

Things to consider:

-They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and brunch on Saturday and Sunday. 

-Their space is tiny, and they suggest making a reservation for Saturday and Sunday brunch.

-Free parking is available in the San Jacinto parking garage (see website for details)

-Weekday happy hour is from 4-6pm

Squeezery

I coincidentally stumbled into the tiny, yet super adorable, “Squeezery” near our hotel in Austin, where they have a ton of smoothies and bowls to choose from... or you can create your own! I got the Açaí lime bowl and topped it with coconut flakes, banana, and blueberries and it was the refreshing, sweet treat my body was craving after today’s run. Plus, they put it in the most adorable coconut bowl I’ve ever seen... I mean, really!? 😍🤤


Blenders & Bowls

Blenders & Bowls is another popular place in Austin to grab a tasty treat made from “the purest nutrients and organic ingredients."

Let's talk about this peanut-buttery-chocolatey-goodness-bowl that I ordered called the "Sesher": the blend is açaí, blueberries, bananas, peanut butter, chocolate almond milk and is topped with hemp granola, bananas, crushed cashews, raisins, cacao nibs, and local honey. You better believe I devoured the entire thing.
