Before diving into our recommendations, we also want to encourage you to practice mindful eating, another pillar of eating healthier. All it takes is activating your physical and emotional senses to really experience and enjoy the food choices you’re making. We’ll use Treats Food Hall as an example. First, take in your surroundings–the art installations, stylish communal seating, that fabulous rooftop terrace with oversized games, and abundant natural light all create an inviting atmosphere just begging you to settle in for a great meal. Next, notice how your meal looks and focus on how it tastes with each bite. And voila! It may just become the greatest meal of your day.

Now onto the really important details: where and what to eat:

Sproutz Aventura Mall

Sproutz is a healthy, fast-casual eatery that offers fresh, customizable meals catering to various nutritional and dietary needs. This month, the eatery recommends their 10-inch Classic Chipotle Chicken Wrap as a “healthy and satisfying lunch or dinner” option that’s “delicious and packed with protein,” making it a “total win-win.” It’s easy to see why! The wrap is made with tender pieces of chicken, hearty brown rice, black beans, flavor-packed chipotle sauce, melty jack cheese, and refreshing pico de gallo, all wrapped up in a baked tortilla. Thinking about going to another Sproutz location? Think again! Their 10-inch classic wraps are an Aventura Mall exclusive. While you’re at it, consider picking up some of their delicious homemade pumpkin soup and a “guilt-free” protein brownie for dinner!

Yalla Motek Aventura Mall

Yalla Motek is a brand-new concept from the creators of Motek Café, offering Mediterranean-style street food. The eatery is both health-conscious, vegan-friendly, and Kosher, taking great care in sourcing only the highest quality ingredients for your benefit. Transporting your tastebuds around the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Sabich is not only a healthy menu option but a cultural phenomenon taking over the street-food scene. “At Yalla, you can choose SABICH in a pita pocket, a rice bowl, or a hummus bowl.” This Iraqi-Jewish dish traditionally consists of crunchy fried eggplant, protein-packed hard-boiled eggs, chopped salad, and flavorful sprigs of parsley, and is finished with tangy amba and tahini sauce.

JRK at Aventura Mall

Jrk! is a fast-casual restaurant concept serving signature Jamaican bowls and sides with the tagline “real food done betta’!” The Jerk Shrimp Bowl will transport your tastebuds to the islands with its fluffy rice, sweet peas, sweet and spicy Jerk shrimp, juicy pineapple mango salsa, pineapple plantains, jerk peppers, and onions. No trip to JRK! is complete without several sides, which really bring your meal together. Order the chili-roasted broccoli for a true explosion of spice and a Jamaican patty, which is loaded with flavor and filled with spiced beef, jerk chicken, or roasted veggies. The tender, flaky, and buttery dough is cooked to perfection and will bring a bit of that island sunshine to your table.

Zuuk restaurant at Aventura Mall

Zuuk offers Mediterranean eats and health-centric drinks in a fast-casual setting. “Healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants plus low sugar are some of the benefits that a Mediterranean meal offers.” And at this eatery, customization is the name of the game. Start with a base by choosing either a bowl with turmeric basmati rice, bulgar, cauliflower rice, lentils, or greens, or opt for a fresh pita, or salad, then pick from a variety of flavorful dips and spreads like feta mint and lemon or tangy tzatziki. Next up, add in proteins and veggies such as tender lamb kefte flavored with mouthwatering Greek spices, delicate chicken with oregano and lemon, or crunchy falafel balls. The final step is the most difficult – choose up to five toppings when you’ll likely want to add 10! If you’re not in the mood for a full meal, the eatery recommends their “flavorful Baba Ganoush, a Mediterranean eggplant dip, made with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and salt.” There’s really no way to go wrong here.

Poke 305

Poké 305 caters to those who love fresh, delicious food made with an assortment of organic ingredients, and homemade sauces to top it all off. From acai bowls and smoothies to signature bowls you’ll devour way too fast, snacks by El Merkaditto, and natural beverages to quench your thirst, the variety of healthy eats and flavor combos is nearly endless here. Today we’re taking a sweeter approach to their menu and recommending the Nani Bowl, which is “packed with delicious fruits and a guava passion fruit sauce. The combination of the homemade kimchi with sweet fruits makes for a perfect bowl.” As an added bonus, Kimchi is full of beta-carotene and other antioxidant compounds, and also contains probiotics that can support gut health, making this meal a 10/10 in our book!

Chipotle - Aventura Mall

Chipotle Mexican Grill needs no introduction, but here it goes: the eatery is a beloved hot spot for burritos, tacos, burrito bowls, and salads made from fresh, high-quality ingredients served in an interactive style allowing you to get exactly what you want. We recommend their new lifestyle bowls that cater to a variety of dietary needs and take the guesswork out of healthy choices. For example, their Wholesome Bowl is labeled as whole30, paleo, and keto-approved, coming in at just 470 calories. The Plant Powered Bowl is vegan and vegetarian friendly with filling rice and sofritas as an alternative protein option to accompany the veggie mainstays. When your meal needs to keep you stuffed for hours or you’re recovering from a hard workout, look no further than the High Protein Bowl, which packs all the usual goods plus a double serving of chicken. Pro tip if you’re a garlic lover, swap out the included protein in your bowl for the new garlic guajillo steak and thank us later.

Are you hungry yet? If so, run, don’t walk to Treats Food Hall to satisfy whatever it is you’re now craving, or explore Aventura Mall’s multitude of dine-in restaurants. There’s always something new to discover and we’re happy to help you find it!
