My Favorite Healthy Scottsdale Restaurants

No matter how devout you are to your diet, chances are you will be pressed for time or attend a social event that requires you to eat out. Luckily, Scottsdale has many restaurants that have low-calorie, nutrient-dense offerings for you to choose from. Here are my favorites.


Formerly known as D’lish, this restaurant is one of the best on-the-go healthy fast food restaurants out there. D’lite is a Vegetarian-friendly breakfast and lunch joint near Old Town Scottsdale. They provide a healthy alternative to fast-food, offer organic and all-natural fresh ingredients, including locally grown produce when available, and even have a drive-thru for those of you in a hurry!

Chop Shop

Chop shop is a delicious, healthy and quick alternative to fast food that offers a variety of fresh salads, sandwiches, protein bowls and unsweetened teas. Chop Shop was specifically created for the on-the-go and busy person who still desires to lead a healthy lifestyle. Chop Shop is perfect for a nutritious lunch with co-workers or friends, and their outdoor patio is even dog-friendly!

Herb Box

The Herb Box is an innovative boutique-style restaurant that caters to the health conscious individual. Their menu is a la carte and offers a wide assortment of shared plate options. This chic restaurant always offers fresh, seasonal ingredients and has a wide selection of vegetable-based plates, as well as vegan and vegetarian offerings. The Herb Box now has three different locations with one in North Scottsdale located in DC Ranch and two in Old Town Scottsdale.


Although not everything on the list would be considered a health food, SumoMaya definitely has a one-of-a-kind approach to the culinary arts with its Mexican-Asian fusion menu features and eclectic ambiance. SumoMaya offers a variety of healthy options including sushi, salads and sandwiches that are made with the freshest ingredients and flavors from across Latin America and the Far East.

Tryst Café

Tryst Café is a locally-owned healthy food option with a hip and contemporary atmosphere. The café was named diners choice in both 2013 and 2014 due to their wide array of innovative healthy menu options from around the world. Tryst Café sources nearly all of their fresh ingredients locally and organically, and a majority of the menu can be prepared gluten-free.
