There was a time not long ago when healthy holiday meal options were hard to find in the Alamo City. Thankfully, those days are securely in the past. Health-focused residents who don’t want to prepare their own healthy holiday meals have several noteworthy options:
Vegeria on Broadway – Dine in for a decidedly vegan (and gluten-free) holiday experience on Thanksgiving Day. Chef Fred Anthony Garza Trevino and his team are hosting three timed buffet seating options. The menu is too lengthy to include here, but see www.myvegeria.com for the full menu and additional details. Reservations required, so call 210-826-4223 to reserve your seat.
Green Vegetarian – The Behrend brothers of Green Vegetarian will host a vegan feast on Thanksgiving Day at their Pearl Brewery location. With a “Give peas a chance – and turkeys too!” theme, the restaurant will be open from 10:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. You can pay in advance on Green’s website through Eventbrite, but seating will be first come, first served. For information, visit www.greensanantonio.com.
Greenling home delivery – If you prefer to enjoy your healthy Thanksgiving meal at home but are happy to let someone else do the cooking, Greenling will deliver to your doorstep for free. They offer a huge selection of healthy holiday options that you can mix and match to suit your health needs and your sweet tooth. Options include organics, gluten free, vegetarian and vegan. And if you desire a traditional Thanksgiving turkey, they have medium and large free-range options from Richardson Farms in Rockdale. To see all options, visit www.greenling.com/ thanksgiving.
