If you have San Antonio Spurs tickets you’ll be happy to know that there are healthy food options before you head into the game. We all know that Texas is known for its glorified BBQ menu but there’s not many options, if any, at the AT&T Center for the healthy eaters. Let’s take a look at where you can stop before the game…
This vegetarian and kosher restaurant was named “Best place to Get a Healthy Meal” in 2014 by New 4 San Antonio. If you are looking for the healthy alternative to Texas BBQ this is absolutely the place, as they will customize the meal to your liking with non-dairy and gluten-free items.
The have a sizeable breakfast menu if you decide to go there earlier in the day; the sweet potato pancakes and Avacado Eggs Benedict are the big hits on the morning menu. For lunch/dinner you can feast on tacos; some options to fill them are: eggs, tofu, chorizo, beans and cheese. A big favorite with the regulars is the Raw Deal Wrap- a collard wrap with mushrooms, cranberries, spinach, cashew cheese, tomatoes, bell peppers, carrots, broccoli and sprouts. Not sure how they fit all of that in there, but their customers love it. The Mediterranean Bowl, another crowd favorite, includes quinoa tabouli, baba ganoosh, tzatziki, black olives, falafel patties, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, dolmas and cashew cheese.
