Healthy Dining Finder - The Best Places to Eat in North America

Websites cooking up new places to get your grub everywhere you go

Think travel is a one-way ticket to the fat farm? You're between flights, so you grab the easiest (read: highest fat) thing to munch on while sifting your way through security. Or you arrive at your destination and the only thing on your mind is something deep fried and drizzled in chocolate.

Travel AlertsTravel AlertsMore than 133 million Americans eat at restaurants on any given day, but that doesn't have to equal relinquishing control over what and how much we eat.

Newsflash: Eating while traveling can be just as healthy as eating at home. And it's not as difficult as you may think.

We know, it's tempting to hit the first fast joint that your taxi passes. But a little research (less than 5 minutes) can make sticking to your diet a simple reality. Scope out the city you'll be visiting using a site that gives honest reviews of the food, menu options and price point.

Got time while you're waiting for your ride or next flight? Go online and find out what's good to eat where with these sites.

Restaurantica - Restaurants across North America reviewed by people who eat at them. You'll find price point, hours of service and a rating for each one.

Healthy Dining Finder - Plug in the city you're going to within the US to search by price point and whether you'll eat in or take-out. Gives some nutritional information and menu selections.

Open Table - Allows you to make reservations online and gives a brief overview, dining style and menu, hours of operation and contact info.

Where do you find restaurant info when you're traveling?

Happiness and food are related to each other. And talking about cooking, i'm happier when i prepare my delicious food myself and enjoy the pleasure. I am not so interested in junk food, rather i like home made meals.

Thank you for this post. I have tried looking at open table and Im so happy how it works.Great Job. Travis,

This last Sunday was Easter and I visited Nikki Beach Resort Turks and was amazed. They have an incredible Sunday Brunch with everything you can imagine, and it was all great! After we gorged for a few hours with unlimited mimosas we headed to the pool party. DJ on the pool deck with a margarita in the infinity pool was like heaven. We ended the evening with Beach bonfire and BBQ. Once again the food was terrific sitting around the bonfire laughing with some of our newfound friends. I know where I will be staying next time I come to Turks and Caicos.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
