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 Cherry Chia Limeade, are nutritious and delicious.


Spa Cafe at The Boulders Resort

The Spa Café menus are designed to deliver balanced, nutritious, spirit-satisfying meals made from locally sourced fresh ingredients, including vegetables and herbs from the Boulder’s on-site organic garden. Diet restrictions? Not to worry – options are available for vegetarians, vegans and those with food allergies and sensitivities.


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 blends for natural seasoning. Striking a balance between healthy and tasty, dishes like the Thai Shrimp & Rice Soup and Balsamic Beets 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.


Terras at CIVANA

Led by Executive Chef, Justin Macy,  a spa cuisine veteran, Terras spotlights seasonal, local ingredients and bright flavors to create innovative, nourishing and flavorful, plant-forward menus. Terras is about choice, from healthy to indulgent. Gluten-free, grain-free, vegetarian, and vegan options available. Guests also have the opportunity to learn healthy cooking techniques through a variety of unique culinary classes offered through the daily wellness programming that is available with every stay.
