Q and A With Sarah Bregel of BHealthyBMore

Carrie Murphy

Here at Baltimore Eats, we are huge fans of BHealthyBMore. The new website, which focuses on fun, fitness and food in Baltimore, is a great resource for everything from yoga classes to low-calorie happy hour food. Sarah Bregel, a writer and personal trainer, started the site earlier this year and she's already been featured in Baltimore magazine and on WBAL! We recommend the site to any Baltimorean looking to inject a little (or a lot) of health into his or her life. To learn more, we asked Sarah a few questions about healthy living in Charm City, including where to eat the tastiest healthy dishes (and what to order once you're there).


1.What made you decide to start your website, BHealthyBmore?

I'm a personal trainer so I'm all about being healthy, but I also love to eat and drink! I wanted an outlet to write about healthy food items and slimmed down drinks in Baltimore and prove to people that you can eat, drink AND be healthy. I wanted to tell people about what's going on in terms of health and wellness in our city since there is so much. 


2.The site focuses on food, fitness and everything healthy in Baltimore. Do you see a trend towards healthy living happening in Charm City?

I absolutely see a trend towards healthy living in Baltimore. That's actually why I thought the site needed to happen now. Everywhere you turn there is a new restaurant that is genuinely concerned with serving fresh, organic food, or a bar that came up with a new low-cal cocktail. We focus a lot on exercise on the site and there is something going on pretty much at all times. People are starting to realize how much our city has to offer and we want people to take advantage of that so they can better their health. 


3.What are some of your favorite places to eat healthy meals in Baltimore?

There are so many. One of my favorite restaurants which we recently wrote about is Ethel and Ramones in Mount Washington. They have tons of healthy selections and the atmosphere is really eclectic. I also love Gertrudes, Clementine, Woodberry Kitchen and Dogwood Restaurant in Hampden. If you're looking for quick bites, Hummus Corner or Zia's in Towson are also great spots, to name a few! 


4.Are there any specific healthy dishes you'd recommend ordering around the city?

There are too many too name! But the Parmesan-truffle risotto from Crush in Belvedere Square popped into my head because I order it every time I'm there. It has cauliflower butter, dried cranberries, and almonds. You absolutely should only eat half because the portion is very generous but it makes a great leftover. There's so many restaurants using organic and locally grown ingredients now, too. You just need to make careful selections. You can enjoy a meal that is healthy and delicious every bit as much as one that is terrible for you.


5. Is there anything else Baltimore Eats readers should know about BHealthyBmore and living healthfully in Baltimore?

We just want to be a resource for the people of Baltimore to eat, drink and be healthy. It takes a little bit of effort, but we hope to show people that Baltimore is making it easier than ever for us to do all three simultaneously.
