Since living a healthy life- style has conquered people in South Florida, most restaurants in Boca have added new dishes to their menu with healthy delights for those who want to go out without cheating.

“There is no doubt that Boca has it all when it comes to food variety,” said Valentina Velazquez, sophomore.

The area has always been known for its fine dining and quality social life. The diversity of restaurants in the city varies from Tex-Mex toAsian cuisines. Fortunately, these establishments have acquired a whole new menu for those who value their fitness.

“When I am [on a] diet, I can totally go out and eat anywhere I want,” said Ana Terán, senior.

When looking at a menu to choose what to eat, plates that include grilled salmon, chicken or any other protein with vegetables on the side, preferably steamed, are what to go for.

Brio Tuscan Grille, Seasons 52 and even the Italian restaurant, Villagio, are some of the places that have improved their menu in the area.

For example, Brio Tuscan Grille is well known for its grilled salmon that comes with mixed grilled vegetables and sweet potato bites. Like- wise they have a “lightly side menu,” which gives options such as salads and gluten free pasta, among others. Additionally, Seasons 52 is famous because almost all of their plates are less than 500 calories and includes beef and fish.

It is understandable that students live on a daily budget, but that is not a problem when it comes to this city. One can also visit healthy restaurants such as Tossed Salad Bar and Yard House, where one can pay between $10 and $20 for a healthy meal.

“To keep the body in good health is a duty. Otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear,” Buddha once said.
