If you're like most people, you've been using winter and the holiday season as an excuse to binge on all of the cookies, cakes, and treats in sight. But now that we're starting a new year, it's time to lock it up. In the land of breweries and tacos, it can be tough to keep yourself in check. Here's our list of our favorite places to get healthy in Austin.


Ahhh Juiceland, home of the cleanses. Their fresh pressed juices and smoothies just scratch the surface of this health mecca. You'll also find healthy and nutritious food like their Asian Clean and Soba Noodle Bowl, a Mediterranean bowl with tabbouli, hummus, tomatoes and olives, and an awesome quinoa ranchero bowl (just to name a few!). They also have tons of grab and go options.

Picnik's entire menu is paleo and gluten-free, which really helps if you're prone to giving into temptation. We especially love their quiches, soups, and salads. They also offer great pastries for when you feel like treating yourself. Don't leave without grabbing a Bulletproof coffee!

The name says it all! Leaf's menu has a huge selection of salads, and if you're feeling extra hungry, make it a wrap!

Bouldin Creek Coffeehouse

Bouldin Creek has tons of options for vegans and vegetarians, so it's safe to say there are tons of healthy options here. From salads to omelettes, Bouldin Creek goes the extra mile to make sure their dishes are balanced, healthy, and chock-full of veggies.

Koriente is a great place to go if you're craving Asian but want to be healthy. They have veggie bowls, veggie wraps (like the one pictured below). Their kitchen doesn't even have a fryer or a microwave! Here's what the owners have to say: 
"Calorie conscious and nutrition conscious, most of our dishes are low in oil and sugar. We've used natural sweetners such as fruit juices or honey in the place of refined sugar whenever possible. And if it's quality you're looking for, you won't find better anywhere else. Only the finest ingredients possible go into our made-from-scratch menu items. And as our taste depends on the natural flavors of the ingredients themselves, we wouldn't dare not to." Need we say more?

The most important thing about being healthy is that in order to sustain your efforts, you have to treat yourself once in awhile! That means not depriving yourself of queso and hambugers on your cheat day.
