10 Best Restaurants with Healthy Menus in Phoenix

The Phoenix food scene has never been more diverse and exciting, especially when it comes to eating healthy. A spate of new eateries have brought fresh eating to all corners of the city.

One of the newest restaurants in Phoenix with a healthy menu is Flower Child, another restaurant from the mega-successful Fox Restaurant Concepts group. Flower Child has an eclectic menu full of organic salads, whole grain wraps, bowls and hot pots, and vegetable plates. Try the watermelon and heirloom tomato salad, a sweetly refreshing mix of romaine, mint, basil, goji berry, pistachios, goat cheese and a house-made apple cider vinaigrette.

If you're looking for a place to enjoy a healthy yet delicious breakfast, head to the Pomegranate Cafe. This cozy breakfast, brunch and lunch spot dishes out unique and tasty offerings like their popular breakfast burrito, which is stuffed with your choice of egg or tofu, a harvest hash, seasonal veggies, anasazi beans, your choice of vegan or cheddar cheese, and then is wrapped in a large spinach tortilla. 

For a healthy menu based on the principles of the anti-inflammatory diet, head to True Food Kitchen. The restaurant is the brainchild of Dr. Andrew Weil, renown health and wellness guru.
