I eat my best when I am at home where I have the most control over what I eat. When I have time to plan, I will pack a cooler filled with good stuff to keep in the car. But I would be a social pariah if I never sat down to eat at a restaurant with friends after a hike.
One of my very first blog posts was to share my favorite eating stops after a hike. Eating out is a challenge in general when trying to eat healthy, let only trying to find a place close to a trailhead.
After 5 years, I have a collection of establishments where they serve at least one thing on the menu that I feel confident eating without having to compromise my health goals. And yes, some of these are what I would consider a “treat” and not part of my daily eating routine.

Did I miss somewhere YOU love to go and I should include on my list? Write me to let me know and I will check them out!
