Clients often ask me for restaurant suggestions for healthy dining in Harvard Square. One resource that many of you might find helpful (regardless of location) is called The Healthy Dining Finder. Essentially, you type in your zip code, price range, and type of restaurant you are looking for. And the website produces restaurants and menu suggestions based on your search criteria. The only downside is that most of the participating restaurants are chains, so it won’t cover all of the restaurants in your area.
My favorite cheap and healthy restaurant choice in Harvard Square is Felipe’s Taqueria. You can get a whole wheat veggie burrito (filled with freshly grilled vegetables) for under $5. With whole grains, tons of veggies, and black beans it’s filling and packed with wholesome nutrition. I highly recommend it.
