5 Health Food Restaurants in Detroit Helping the City Eat Well & Live Better

Healthy Restaurants in Detroit Are Flavorful, Seasonal & Locally-Sourced. Eat Better Without Sacrifice!


Many of us missed dining at our favorite restaurants due to social distancing restrictions. Things are looking a little brighter this summer. Food doesn’t have to be bland to be good for you. Healthy eating in Detroit is even easier when there are so many diverse options. Not to mention, several carry locally-sourced ingredients, which are guaranteed fresh with rich flavors. This ultimately creates better health and fulfillment for Detroiters.

Summer is a time to eat healthy and local foods. Locally sourced is freshness at its peak. Detroitisit rounded up a list of health food restaurants in Detroit on many levels.



Carbs are a continual controversy, but it’s led to alternate options. Enjoying a sandwich without bread is not as crazy as it sounds! Breadless opened its doors in March on East Jefferson Avenue. What can you expect? Fill up with a line of quality, clean sandwiches wrapped in greens instead of bread. Take a taste trip with the Cloud 9 Pastrami, which is loaded with Havarti cheese, shredded cabbage, pickle, red onions, spicy ground mustard, and house-made Reuben sauce long with collard greens. Pair a sandwich with a beverage from Midwest Juicery and you’ll be golden. Click HERE to visit their site. Don’t be surprised if more health food restaurants in Detroit go breadless!
