Healthy Taste Good

At the beach, options are plentiful: In Rehoboth and beyond, head for Twist Juice Bar, Juicefresh or GreenMan Juice Bar & Bistro for fresh-made, fruit-and-veggie smoothness. Good Earth Market stocks all the goodness you’ll need in two locations: Rehoboth, and Ocean View, where a restaurant supplements the appeal.

In Lewes, Nectar Cafe & Juice Bar is the place to stop if you’re after healthier breakfast and lunch offerings, and Bountiful Bowls keeps things light, fresh and delicious with açaí bowls, salads and healthy snacks. Semra’s Mediterranean Grill in Rehoboth has become a go-to for vegans and vegetarians, who are very frequently catered to at a variety of beach-area restaurants.

Upstate, nutrition-minded diners have long headed to Home Grown Cafe in Newark for food and music, or just nabbed a home-made grab-and-go meal at Honeybee in trendy Trolley Square, which doubles as a market for locally grown produce. In and around Wilmington, Drop Squad Kitchen offers “unapologetically vegan” fare on the Riverfront, and the V-Trap Kitchen & Lounge in Wilmington’s Little Italy creates healthier versions of your favorite cuisines, from Mexican to Italian to classic American.

If you still haven’t eaten your fill, check out other dining highlights, from Delaware’s fresh seafood to local favorites and top breweries.
