Birmingham - (reasonably) healthy eats?

Dax | Jul 11, 2007 02:44 PM

As you might be able to tell from some of my recent outings for dinner in the area, I sometimes eat a bit too much rich and/or fat laden foods. I love them. But sometimes I have a craving for something a bit more on the healthy side for lunch or dinner. What are some of your favorite places to get light/healthy eats and please make specific recommendations for dishes, when possible.

For example, I thought the falafel with a side of pita chips (and a little tzatziki on the side) for like $7 at Nabeel's was pretty tasty, filling, and somewhat on the light side side. The falafel there is a pita wrap with the following ingredients - hummus, lettuce, tomatoes, and crushed falafel balls (which may or may not have been fresh, but yes, they were still fried - unless they make so many that they pre-bake them). Maybe some onions, I forget. It was better than the one, I guess, at the Sultan that I had last week.

Maybe some Asian restaurants with steamed vegetables and protein of your choice? I find that most times these are too bland for my taste buds.

gulp, maybe even some well done tofu dishes?

Or great salad options?
