Atlanta Healthy Eats

I live by the 80/20 rule (err 60/40 lol). I believe in eating and I believe in eating what you enjoy. Everything in moderation, and sometimes a little more than you probably should, but that’s life. I’ve done the restrictive diet thing and will never again. Personally I’d much rather run my ass off (literally) and be able to eat what I want. With that… I do enjoy healthy eats, here are some of my favorite spots to grab a clean eat!

Upbeet

The Aloha bowl is my absolute favorite healthy eat in Atlanta. The bamboo rice is so tasty, it’s topped with arugula, mango, raw tuna, jalapeños and macadamia nuts.

pro tip: I get mine with half bamboo rice & half arugula because I can’t eat the whole thing if it’s all rice lol, (I mean I want to, but..)

O’ku

Poke bowl & a cocktail (because, balance) from my favorite sushi bar!

Poke Burri

Sushi burrito, you get your burrito fix but in the healthiest way possible. Hello omega-3’s! Look at how amazing this is!

Serpas

Smoked salmon chips with capers and red onion. OK, the chip might not seem healthy but it’s a mute point of the meal, it’s more like the plate holding the smoked salmon and veggies but you also get to eat it! lol

Sukoshi

Ahi Tuna bowl over brown rice with edamame, sesame seeds and mango! You can’t go wrong & they’re the sister restaurant of O’ku!

Clean Juice

The green 14 bowl, it has (as you probably already guessed) 14 types of greens, plus goji berries, avocado and walnuts!

AIX TinTin

Fall inspired shrimp salad with cauliflower, olives and butternut squash.

Like I said, healthy eats are good and it’s all about balance. Do you have some you’d recommend?

Atlanta – Bloody Mary’s

I love a good Bloody Mary, the spicer the better in my book. After every race it’s a tradition of mine that I drink one (or more) and of course they’re the perfect cocktail for brunch! Grab one from these spots next time you run a 10K or dress up for brunch with your people.

Parish Inman Park

Post Peachtree Road Race Bloody Mary’s. The PPRR it the largest 10K in the work (60K + runners), and my favorite 4th of July tradition (well with the Bloody Mary of course).

Serpas

The celery stick alone is enough to make me smile but the fact that you can see the spices in the glass make me really excited!

Varuni Napoli

How about a spicy Bloody Mary with a side of breakfast pizza. Yes, please!

West Egg Cafe

The ‘Spicy Maria’ with a short stack + chocolate chips because I was at the crack of down for a freezing cold 5K in Atlanta. I really do love my post race Bloody Mary tradition (& carbs lol).

Wheatley Vodka-Mary

Or.. you could make your own Bloody Mary at home with some Wheatley vodka (from the buffalo trace family) and spice it up how ever you want. I love a piece of pickled okra, tomato and celery!

Atlanta Unique Eats – Sweets

Sweet treats are easy to find in Atlanta but how about some more unique options, ube what?, ice cream on a donut.. yes please!! Check these out when you’re in town, in no particular order:

Cream puffs with vanilla, chocolate or green tea filling and/or icing – just amazing

Revolution Donuts

Tiny Doors ATL’s 5th birthday donut was this adorable pink sprinkled vegan donut that I happily shot in front of her giant door! The giant door is #658 because it is 658 times larger than a tiny door!
