Want to eat healthy in Miami any time of day? Here are 20 affordable spots to check out

The temptation to put an egg on a huge burger, to gorge on a heap of churrasco, or to fill up on pork buns at yet another Asian fusion restaurant can be overwhelming in the Magic City these days.

And while there are healthy eating options around the city, they can often put a real dent in your pocket.

Instead of hitting up the same spots with fatty foods or super pricey spots with all “farm-to-table” organic ingredients, give one of these 20 spots a try. They all offer healthy options for breakfast, lunch or dinner and many of them are vegetarian and vegan friendly.

But what exactly do we mean by “healthy?” Baptist Health dietitian Susan Nowrouzi told us that we should go for lean proteins that aren’t prepped with a lot of butter or sugary sauces, avoid drinking empty calories (sorry craft beer bros), and look for as many veggies as possible.

Another tip from Nowrouzi? “Don’t go to a restaurant when you’re too hungry because you eat with your eyes.”

Yeah, we’re all guilty of that.
