to the new year at these Tulsa spots
Judy Allen For the Tulsa World
January is the month of “new.” New year, new resolutions, new exercise habits, new to-do lists and almost certainly a new diet. Or at least the promise of one.
One of the biggest trends of last year sure to carry through 2021 is the popularity of the plant-based diet. Lucky for us, nutritious options abound throughout the city. Energize and refresh your body with healthy food from one of these delicious choices. They take care of the food so the food can take care of you.
If you’re looking for healthy food that doesn’t taste healthy, Pure Food + Juice in Brookside is a mighty fine first stop. As the name would hint, the café offers a juice bar, smoothies and more.
“People come in every single day and are surprised that we have Italian, Asian, Mexican food, desserts, cocktails, beer and wine,” owner Cynthia Beavers said. “Many people don’t even realize that we have such a vast dine-in food menu.”
That menu includes a bevy of offerings that are as delicious as they are pretty, such as sushi rolls, nachos and tacos, and Buddha bowls. All of the produce is sourced from Local Farm OK. The pandemic hasn’t seemed to hurt the business at Pure, as the café continued to stay busy, even when Beavers shut down the dining room to take-out only.“I think now more than ever people want to be healthy, and we are the healthiest place in town,” Beavers added.
