Of course if you have the time to cook at home that is the healthier and less expensive option but sometimes it’s nice to treat yourself to a meal out. Here are my go-to options for quick, healthy meals out in Milwaukee:
Bowls – Like the name suggests, this place has all different types of bowls: smoothies, grains, greens, and chia puddings. My favorites are the chopped raw salad with steak and the green goddess grain bowl. This place has clean ingredients and reasonable prices.
FreshFin Poke – With two locations – one on the Eastside and new opened Third Ward location, this is a convenient place to get a flavorful meal of fresh seafood. They also have a vegan option. I’ve only been here a couple of times and have enjoyed everything that I’ve tried. The curry coconut shrimp is probably my favorite!
WholeFoods – If I ever need a quick meal after the gym, this is where I head. They recently rolled out a partnership with nomnompaleo and they now rotate some of her recipes through the hot bar. They have all been delicious. If I don’t get that I make a big salad. They also have great pre-made options and the ‘paleo burrito’ from the taco bar is another hidden gem.
Urban Beets – This vegan/gluten-free friendly restaurant is a little bit off the beaten path, but totally worth the trip! It’s a great space and they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Everything on their menu looks good but I’ve personally tried and enjoyed the pulled bbq carrot sandwich and one of their smoothie bowls.
Green Kitchen @ Milwaukee Public Market – This stand at the public market is my go-to for a reasonably priced salad with all sorts of topping options. They pack A TON of salad into their containers and have plenty of homemade dressings to choose from. My other favorite order is the pesto chicken wrapped in collard greens. They have great sounding sandwiches and juices, too.
I hope this post inspires you to try out a new spot or dish! Enjoy!!
