If your new year's resolution has taken a detour or you're not even sure where it got off track, don't be down on yourself, there is still time to keep it going and try again! If part of your resolution was to eat better, or you're just looking for places to grab a fresh and nutritious bite, check out our list of the best healthy options Dallas has to offer.

Flower Child
5450 W Lovers Ln #133, Dallas, TX 75209
2101 Cedar Springs Road Suite R100 Dallas, TX 75201
5959 Royal Lane, Unit #542 Dallas, TX 75230
A fast and fun restaurant offering options for any dietary plan. A boho-chic interior gives you the perfect backdrop to Instagram your healthy meal and the kitchen is not short of delicious options. Meat lovers and veggie lovers alike can find something on the menu, and it all goes down with one of their organic beers on tap or a refreshing and revitalizing kombucha. 

Gather Kitchen
1601 Elm St #140, Dallas, TX 75201
If you're enjoying your Dallas adventure in the Downtown area, check out Gather Kitchen in Thanksgiving Tower. Gather Kitchen has plenty of delicious gluten-free options that don't feel like last-minute menu additions, or you can stick with paleo or plant-based options as well. Their atmosphere adds to the experience with a beautiful interior in a convenient and bright building. Finish up lunch and go take your "big eye" selfie just across the street!

Cosmic Cafe
2912 Oak Lawn Ave, Dallas, TX 75219
Dive or delicacy? Cosmic Cafe is a favorite in Oak Lawn for a simple yet delicious vegetarian menu with a unique seating scene. The best part is most of their plates offer a little of everything so it's great for those of us with decision anxiety. What's beyond the menu? They also feed your body and soul. They offer yoga and meditation practices as well, with new options coming to the calendar all the time.

Spiral Diner
1101 N Beckley Ave, Dallas, TX 75203
Sometimes all you need is a classic diner vibe with an all plant-based menu. I like to think Spiral Diner is what Tina Turner had in mind writing the line "you're simply the best!" The diner is a great place to gather 'round a plant of vegan nachos with your friends, or yes, you can order them as your entree to keep all for yourself. From indulgent comfort food to lean and green, everyone in your squad will leave here happy and ready to explore more of Bishop Arts.

HG Sply Co.
2008 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206
Two words: sunset toast. And no, that's not breakfast for dinner, it's how HG Sply Co. winds down the workday with their guests. A toast of one of their house-blended liquors for everyone (over 21). Add that to their well-curated menu of paleo, vegetarian, Whole30 or eat what I want when I want dietary options, and you'll have a wonderful evening at HG Sply Co.

Vegan Food House
832 W 7th St, Dallas, TX 75208
You better save room for dessert. Vegan Food House not only has a menu to boast about, but they offer daily fresh desserts like cakes and parfaits to finish it off. So if you come for the Buffalo Mac & Cheese Chick'em sandwich, or any of their other incredible options, you should stay for the dessert or even just a glass of wine.

True Food Kitchen
8383 Preston Center Plaza #100, Dallas, TX 75225
This restaurant's rotating menu offers guests something new each time you visit, but they always keep it fresh with ingredients fit for the season. They have keto and paleo specific options and they even offer a $5 menu 5 days a week to keep both your belly and your wallet happy. And don't forget to ask your server to pair your meal with the perfect wine or cocktail.
