Healthy Food Trucks To Try in the New Year
With healthy food trucks popping up all over the country there’s no excuse to not eat a nourishing, balanced meal – even when you’re busy or on the go. Serving up good-for-you dishes with locally sourced ingredients, these three trucks are our top picks for a healthier 2017.
This seasonally inspired food truck is serving up organic, 100% plant-based meals with locally grown ingredients. The only all-vegan food truck in Houston offers a little bit of everything, like salads, burgers, and every Texan’s favorite, tex-mex. With the head chef being a registered dietician, you’re sure to find a good-for-you meal at Ripe Cuisine. We recommend the Caprese Melt made with cashew “mozzarella” — we didn’t miss the real thing one bit.
What better way to get in a day’s worth of vitamins and minerals than in an acai bowl? Bowl’d Acai in the Bay Area serves up organic, antioxidant-rich acai, and paired with Bowl’d locally sourced mix-ins and toppings like banana, blueberries, spinach, and coconut, this is a treat that you can feel great about eating. In addition to acai bowls, they also serve up made-to-order raw juices and fresh smoothies. When we’re in need of greens we order the Green Goliath bowl, but you can’t go wrong with the Original Gangster.
Alegria Gourmet prides themselves in offering healthy, organic eats from local vendors. You won’t find antibiotics, preservatives, pesticides or hormones and in any of their offerings. Inspired by Mexican and American cuisine, this LA truck is sure to satisfy any eater. Our pick? The grass-fed beef burger and Alegria cobb.
