4 Restaurants with Great Healthy Options in Mason
Eating out is a constant in our lives, but all too often eating out means eating unhealthy meals. We get it. Eating a salad with lemon juice for a dressing every meal isn’t appealing, but luckily there are plenty of great restaurants in Mason that offer delicious and healthy options. Here is our list of eight great dishes at four Mason restaurants that will have your taste buds rejoicing without the guilt.
In a hurry on your lunch break? No worries. Stop into Zoup at Deerfield Pointe Shopping Center on Mason-Montgomery Road for its Quinoa Veggie soup. This healthy vegan soup has quinoa, kale, red and yellow peppers, broccoli and cauliflower. Clocking in at 100 calories per 8-ounce serving and packed with nutrients, it’s a great option for a hot soup. Zoup also offers red and green gazpacho, served cold, that is incredibly low in calories and packed with flavor. You can also opt for the Fiesta chicken salad with romaine, cheddar, corn and black bean salsa, pico de gallo, tortilla strips and chipotle ranch dressing for 160 calories per half bowl if calories are your main concern. But if you’re strictly watching calories, be sure to check out its nutrition information online before ordering. The roasted veggie wrap, for example, sounds like it would be a great choice, but packs 570 calories a serving.
The Wildflower Café in downtown Mason is a wonderful spot for a great meal. Serving a farm-to-table menu with fresh seasonal ingredients from local and organic farms, the restaurant focuses on achieving minimal environmental impact and sustainable local economies. Try the Vegan Cassoulet, a traditional French country dish (less the meat) with local veggies, country beans and crushed tomatoes baked with thyme, oregano and garlic, topped with crispy onions and aged balsamic, served with a simple salad.
Phoenician Taverna serves Mediterranean fare (including vegetarian options) in the White Blossom Center on Mason-Montgomery Road. This busy restaurant has earned 4.5 out of 5 stars on Yelp and has plenty of healthy options. We like its Salmon Meshwi, a grilled salmon filet served with grilled vegetables and burghul pilaf. The Fool M’Dammas is also delicious. These are simmered fava beans mixed with fresh lemon, garlic and extra virgin olive oil.
S.W. Clyborne & Spirits
Clyborne’s, as it’s known around town, is located on Snider Road at Tylersville. With its chic décor and amazing service, Clyborne’s is quickly going from hidden gem to Mason mainstay. The mushroom lentil burger is a great choice. It includes a house-blend of roasted mushrooms and black beluga lentils, lettuce, pickled onion, fresh avocado and sriracha aioli. Also, check out the fresh catch of the day. Recently, it featured pan-seared Bristol Bay scallops served atop mushroom farro finished with a spring pea purée and shaved radish. Delicious!
