Who says healthy food has to be tasteless? In Scottsdale, wholesome eating is a true culinary adventure. Just try to leave these restaurants hungry. We dare you.

True Food Kitchen

Celebrate simplicity with True Food Kitchen’s menu of sustainable, fresh and satisfying meals. Based entirely on Dr. Andrew Weil’s Anti-Inflammatory Diet & Food Pyramid, flavorful dishes are packed with healthy vegetables, whole grains, and proteins. One taste of the Tuscan Kale Salad and you’ll be craving the lemon, Parmesan and breadcrumb combo for days afterward. Even the drinks, like the Honey Lemonade and Pomegranate Limeade, are nutritious and delicious.

Spa Cafe at The Boulders Resort

Designed to repair, relax and help your body perform at its peak, cuisine from the Spa Café is savory and good for you. Diet restrictions? Not to worry – Spa Chef Neal Hall caters to all types of eaters, including vegetarians, vegans and those with food allergies. Chef Hall locally sources as many of his ingredients as possible, including vegetables and herbs from the Boulder’s on-site organic garden.

Sprouts at Camelback Inn

Enjoy lunch, a snack or cocktail at Sprouts where chefs use the freshest ingredients and innovative spices such as corn and carrot powders, citrus sauces and tomato basil for natural seasoning. Striking a balance between healthy and tasty, shareable plates like the Warm Persian Peppered Feta Salad are low in calories but high in flavor. Wash it down with an antioxidant elixir of your choice. We recommend the Cucumber Cooler with cucumber, mint and fresh lime juice.
