As with other college campuses, the amount of burger, pizza, and fast-food restaurants at the University of Miami and the surrounding campus is a big reason for the Freshman 15. This is no surprise considering so many students live on a tight budget. But, today’s college students are demanding higher quality foods varied in taste and economically priced and eating healthy. There are several apps that many students can download for the latest promotions and deals at some of their favorite places. These include Hooked and Pocket Points. Certainly, sometimes nothing can take the place of a cheesy, greasy slice of pizza or a juicy hamburger but for those students that want food fast but healthy, UM students have many options. Some of the UM students’ favorites include:
Amsterdam Falafel Shop – 5835 Sunset Dr., South Miami, FL 33143. Hottest new vegan/vegetarian-friendly restaurant on the block. Located in the Sunset Place Mall area, it’s a great place to grab a bite to eat if you’re looking for something healthy and not too expensive.
Beehive Juice Bar – 6490 SW 40th Street, Miami, FL 33155. Great spot to pick up healthy food, vitamins, freshly prepared juices, smoothie, sweets, sandwiches, and salad.
Diced – 2342 SW 67th Avenue, West Miami, FL 33156- Has great vegan options and is known for salads.
Green Berry – 305 Alcazar Ave., Coral Gables, FL 33134. Green Berry is a very pleasant healthy choice to have breakfast or lunch
Green Gables Cafe – 327 Alhambra Circle, Coral Gables, FL 33134. A great place to get fresh juices and smoothies as well as sandwiches and salads.
GreenLife Organic Bistro – 104 Giralda Ave, Coral Gables, FL 33134. The acai bowls here are delicious.
The Last Carrot – 3133 Grand Ave, Miami, FL 33133. A great stop for commonplace vegetarian food or revitalizing vegetable juice. A Coconut Grove favorite.
Veganaroma – 3808 SW 8th St., Coral Gables, FL 33134. If you really care about your health and the earth’s sustainability, then Veganaroma is where you need to be.
Even at some of the fast-food restaurants, if your student can resist the temptation, many offer healthy alternatives including salads, grilled proteins, and veggie burgers.
