Do you find that there is no way to stay healthy when eating out and the kids always beg for dessert?

There are plenty of ways to eat healthy at a restaurant.  Stick with us and we'll show you the tricks 😉

But, the easiest way to stay healthy while eating out is to go to a healthy restaurant like Sonima.

Sonima is in Encinitas – San Diego, California and we we had the best family dinner there!  Because anything the kids wanted, we said yes too.  Even the desserts because everything is healthy, gluten free, dairy free, low in sugar and even vegan!

And just because Sonima serves healthy food, it doesn't mean it's tasteless.  In fact, the food is jam packed with flavors and vitamins.

Sonima has gluten free and vegan recipes created with love by our talented friend Chef Joy Houston. Joy has some of the tastiest and healthiest secret sauces that add a punch of flavor into every dish and the real food, organic ingredients help you detox all at the same time.

The cilantro, parsley, dill and other herbs are some of nature's most powerful detoxing tools and Joy's ability to combine the flavors is what makes these simple dishes AMAZING!

The fresh farm to table dishes we enjoyed were:

Raw Vegan Lasagna:  You don't miss the noodles when you taste the layers of zucchini and rich tomato sauce. 

Coconut Wraps: You don't miss the tortilla because these coconut wraps are so fresh and they don't fall apart when you bite into them.

Quinoa Power Salad:  Fresh and packed with protein just from the gluten free quinoa itself.

and the Horchata Chia Pudding:  Yummmmm! So rich and creamy without any dairy.

All these food were so packed with vitamins and nutrients that they filled us up for our drive back home from San Diego to Orange County without leaving anyone stuffed or bloated or in a sleep coma like some long car ride meals do.

Will you be driving through San Diego and need a healthy rest stop?

Sonima also has organic cold pressed juices in the case or you can order off the menu board and try one of their functional smoothies.


Do you live in San Diego and want a place to eat and work out?

Sonima is not just a restaurant but it is a premier Wellness Center and it has some of the best Sonima yoga classes, Sonima dance, Sonima Bootcamp and more!

Here's a sneak peak of their exercise room.
