In the health conscious world we live in today, it seems a little strange that we still throw caution to the wind whenever we travel, eating whatever we like, no matter what the cost to our health. It is understandable, however, because who wants to count calories and watch the fat content when there’s so much delicious food out there, especially in and around Scottsdale where Mexican food reigns supreme! The good news is, when visiting our desert town, you can still eat like calories don’t matter when you sample the delights of the five best healthy restaurants in Scottsdale!

Original Chop Shop, 7158 East 5th Avenue

How happy are we that healthy no longer has to mean bland and tasteless? We are extremely happy, of course, and when you visit the Original Chop Shop, you will be even more delighted! Offering bountiful breakfasts, powerful protein bowls for lunch, and a sweet selection of juices, protein shakes, and acai bowl, your taste buds will be tantalized when sampling the treats served here!

Flower Child, 10460 North 90th Street

Even the name of this unique eatery makes us happy, and the large vegan selection will make your soul sing, but if you’re a die-hard carnivore, never fear. Any of the vegan and vegetarian dishes offered also can have meat added to them, satisfying every member of your traveling party!

D-Lite Healthy on the Go, 2613 North Scottsdale Road

We’ve been told our entire lives that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and D-Lite not only agrees—they think you should be able to get breakfast whenever you want! Their all day breakfast menu includes tasty breakfast sandwiches made with fresh and local ingredients, while their extensive regular menu features a delicious selection of wraps, sandwiches, salads, and more!

Farm and Craft Scottsdale, 4302 North Scottsdale Road

While the outside of this inviting restaurant is typical Arizona architecture, when you open the door and walk inside, it feels as if you have stepped into a midwestern farm house. Cheerful, warm, and welcoming, the food served here is healthy, locally sourced, and exquisitely prepared. Do your taste buds a favor and try the Rustic Farm Salmon.

The Herb Box, 20707 North Pima Road #140

This last eatery on our list of healthy restaurants may be a bit of a drive from your Parsons Villas vacation rental, but we think you’ll find it’s worth it! Serving a weekend brunch that stars very healthy and very delicious Cinnamon Buckwheat Pancakes and also featuring a large vegan and vegetarian selection on their lunch and dinner menus, the meals served here satisfy your soul and your taste buds!
