The Top 8 Santa Monica Restaurants to keep you on track on your Fitness Journey

Whether you live in the Santa Monica area or are just passing by, you're probably interested in nice and cozy places where you can grab a healthy bite to eat.

But with so many options out there, it can be challenging to pick a spot that offers healthy meals and helps you stay on track with your fitness goals.

The good news is, I've got you covered. Whether your immediate goals are to build muscle or lose fat, I've listed four great places where you can grab some healthy food. On top of that, I've also shared one specific item on each menu.

Let's see what they are.

1. Flower Child

Flower Child is a fantastic restaurant that offers a variety of healthy and delicious food options. In their words, "We're on a simple, soul-satisfying mission to spread positively delicious vibes and healthy food in Santa Monica."

The atmosphere is cozy and warm, and you get to pick from a variety of meals that aid your fitness goals. I recommend the Teriyaki Shrimp & Avocado bowl. It offers carrot, organic brown rice, cauliflower, snap pea, shiitake mushroom, and bok choy. Additionally, choose something from the protein menu to ensure you hit your protein target!

The result is a fantastic meal that fills you up and offers a range of essential nutrients you need to stay healthy and feel energized.

2. Urth Caffè

Urth Caffè offers its very own premium, fresh roasted, organic coffee for the enthusiasts out there. But besides the pleasant (and delicious) cup of coffee you can have there, you can also pick from a variety of fitness-friendly foods.

I recommend the Herb-Roasted Turkey Breast Salad. Besides looking fantastic, this salad is also delicious and has a great nutritional profile. If Turkey isn’t your thing, checkout the Smoked Salmon Plate for a solid healthy dose of Omega 3 and 6. (skip the cream cheese to keep this lunch time trip a healthy one!)

If breakfast is your jam, hit the breakfast burrito wrapped in spinach for a high protein, nutrient dense start to your day!
