Healthy Restaurant Options Post Independence Day – Galveston

Fourth of July can be rough on our digestion—hot dogs, barbecues, soda, cupcakes, you name it! Celebrating the 4th means indulging in junk food. One way you can recover, however, is by taking a break from the party foods and checking out one of Galveston’s well-known health restaurants. Get your diet back on track by trying any one of their delicious meals! Below are our recommendations:

Oasis Juice Bar & Market

Enjoy fresh and tasty bites like the avocado sandwich or the quinoa salad at Oasis Juice Bar & Market. Or grab a smoothie, like the Tasty Tease, and add some hemp protein to it. This wonderful spot has the healthy pick-me-ups that you’ll need after a string of 4th of July barbecues and hot dogs. Check it out!


For a truly eclectic menu filled with healthy vegetarian options, try having a bit at Eatcetera. This café takes inspiration from recipes from all over! Try their lunch specials, which include dishes like the Cuban Panini or the Smokes Salmon Salad. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!

Galveston’s Own Farmer’s Market

Finding something healthy, affordable and homegrown is a given at this Galveston staple, like fresh veggies, bread and pasta from scratch, goat cheese, and more! Take your family for a morning or afternoon to the Market and enjoy the incredible food and community locally sourced from our city. You’ll feel healthier after you spend a day eating from Galveston farmers and bakers!

Yaga’s Café

Take a break from all the red meat of Independence Day celebrations and check out Yaga’s veggie, shrimp, or turkey burgers! Their unique take on the burger is a win-win in terms of you having a new culinary experience and nourishing your body with lean proteins! Order a mango salmon salad or Spanish rice. Regardless of what you order, you’ll be satisfied!

Russo’s New York Pizzeria

Pizza may not sound like a healthy alternative, but at Russo’s it is! On the menu, you can find a veggie pizza, a gluten free pizza, or a variety of salads, including a Bocconcini Salad. You won’t have to compromise this favorite food for a healthier meal! You can have both. Enjoy!
