Our DIAKADI Personal Trainers not only know nutritious foods but delicious meals too. Their recommendations of the healthiest, tastiest restaurants in the Bay-Area will leave you feeling healthy and satisfied whether you're gluten-free, plant-based, vegan, or just really dig organic, fresh foods.
SEED AND SALT
This gluten free and vegan revolutionary restaurant brings plant based clean eating to the Marina District. This hefty beet burger (pictured to the left) is made from beets, walnuts, lentils, mushrooms, raisins and brown rice, spices, smoked sea salt and ranch served on a GF burger bun is proof of Seed and Salt's culinary creativity and extensive dietary research. This tempting creation along with their seasonal salads and purple potatoes in a chimichurri sauce is a must try, according to DIAKADI trainer Paul Wright.
"Best salads in SF," claims DIAKADI trainer Natalie Carey. Their unique U-pick menu is as simple as it sounds - You pick exactly what and how you want from the thirty plus ingredients, showing off their artisan products and sustainably grown and procured produce. And not to mention you know exactly where it's coming from - Oak Hill Farm, a small sustainable, and family-run farm in Sonoma. Aside from salads, the menu includes toasted sandwiches and soup all made of quality ingredients. Blue Barn's farm, fresh, and flavorful options will have you coming back for more.
A clean eatery, a marketplace to shop, AND delivery service?
DIAKADI trainer Elaine Williams attests to the all encompassing restaurant - Mission Heirloom in the East Bay. Their organic, local, chemical-free, gluten-free, grain-free, sustainable, GMO-free, grass-fed, wild caught, and raw ingredients may sound too good to be true.
The owners, Barroeta and Chang, believe that deliciousness should be a nutritional requirement. While paleo dieters flock here, their food is about reimagining traditions and passing them forward with top notch ingredients, attracting all foodies. Come in and enjoy their cozy greenhouse with edible garden.
