Baltimore Restaurants That Won't Make You Break Your Healthy New Year's Resolutions

Carrie Murphy

So, your New Year's resolution is to lose ten pounds. Or eat healthier. Or drink more juice. Or go vegan. Or eat more vegetables. Or to eat less processed food. If you're making moves towards a healthier lifestyle in 2013, that doesn't mean you need to stay at home and cook all your meals yourself. Oh no! Baltimore has many eateries for the health-minded. Read on to find out where you can eat out without feeling guilty about your resolution. 


Liquid Earth is one of your best bets for clean eating. This Fells Point spot sells both raw food and vegan food, as well as fresh-squeezed juices like the Enzyme Chamomile Cooler, the Facelifter and the Ginger Cold Snap Cure. Hit this place up after one of your workouts or fuel up here on food you know is good for your body. They also cater, if you want to share your nutritious choices with a large group (take that, box of donuts in the office break room!) For other juice options, hit up Earth's Essence Juice Bar in the Market at Belvedere Square or in Zia's Cafe in Towson.


If you're wary of health food, a visit Zia's Cafe might just be what you need to ease yourself into your New Year's resolution. The menu is full of super healthy items like Raw Pizza, Organic Steamed Quinoa, vegan tuna salad and other delicious sandwiches and wraps, but it's all so good you'll never miss the fat, sodium and other yucky ingredients in most conventional food. The shop is always pretty busy so it's best to get your food to go, or so it has been in my experience. 


Agora Market (inside the Black Olive on Aliceanna St) is awesome for healthy breakfast options, including an impressive selection of green smoothies and juices. Add-ins to these good-for-you drinks include ingredients like spirulina, bee pollen, chia seeds and more. The Land of Kush is another spot that offers vegetarian and vegan menu items, mixed with delicious soul food-inspired choices. Red Emma's and Golden West Cafe also have great meals for vegetarians and vegans. 


We love Ethel and Ramone's in Mt. Washington for their non-boring salads and Cajun food with a healthy twist (this spot also comes highly recommended from BHealthyBMore founder and personal trainer Sarah Bregel).  Not everything on menu of The Dogwood is "healthy" per se, but since the restaurant has a sustainable, whole-food approach to cooking, you can be sure you're eating delicious real food that isn't filled with gross chemicals or plopped out of a box and onto your plate. 


Any other spots (or menu items) for health-conscious eaters in Charm City? We'd always love to hear your recommendations.
