Does Boise’s Restaurant Scene Lack Healthy Options?
As you can see from the photo above, not everyone like my good pal and former KISS FM personality Christopher Cruise love vegetables. I get it, I had my own anti-vegetable phase growing up and sure enough, I eventually turned over the leaf. See what I did there? Now, I love my veggies and I'm fairly confident that if I HAD to, I would be a pretty decent vegetarian.
I spend a lot of time with a vegetarian in my life and one thing I have learned over time here in the Treasure Valley is that there are only so many places that have options. Often times, it boils down to having to order food while making significant modifications. I haven't eaten anywhere that hasn't been super helpful about making those before-- but where are the healthy spots in town!?
It seems like there are only extremes. Restaurants with no real healthy options or restaurants that are SO healthy its nice-only dining.
Just the other day, Mikey popped into my office and said he was ready to go get some dinner someplace healthy. We couldn't think of ONE spot that had an extensive veggie or salad menu!
After posting up on Instagram and asking all of you where you go for a healthy meal--it became clear. We're either crazy or there really aren't options. The most popular result? Chick-Fil-A.
When you're in the mood for a meal out...that's healthy...where do YOU go to grab a bite? Some of my favorites have been The Fork, Tavern at Bown's Crossing, and Bardenay--but there have to be more options!?
