Scottsdale is full of places to enjoy a fresh, healthy meal. Our top pick goes to True Food Kitchen, which features a menu based on the principles of the anti-inflammatory diet, with recipes developed by internationally-recognized health and wellness guru Dr. Andrew Weil. Dinner options include a zesty red chili shrimp entree served over sesame noodles. The eclectic menu is full of organic ingredients, herb-infused cocktails, and gluten-free desserts.
For authentic Vietnamese and pan-Asian dishes like pho, lemongrass curries, and veggie-stuffed spring rolls, grab a lunch stool at Fresh Mint. This vegetarian cafe is known for its garden-fresh vegetables and herbs. Fresh Mint is also a great place to grab a fast yet healthy lunch.
But what could be even easier than going through the drive-thru? That's what you'll find at D'Lite Healthy on the go (formerly D'Lish), a neighborhood cafe in south Scottsdale with a menu full of healthy wraps, salads, sandwiches and coffee drinks and friendly, prompt drive-thru service.
For the full-service restaurant experience, check out Grassroots Kitchen & Tap, a family-owned restaurant with locations in both Scottsdale and Phoenix. The menu specializes in Southern-influenced American cuisine, made from scratch using many locally-sourced ingredients. There are lots of healthy options on the menu, including gourmet, cravable salads and lots of lighter seafood entrees.
