You Really Do Want To Eat More Veggies!
Slowly, but surely, more and more young people are going vegan or vegetarian. I can’t blame them. Sometimes the choices on or around campus just aren’t that healthy. So more veggies, please! My daughter became a vegetarian in 6th grade and continued to eat that way until Sophomore year. The dining plan was so limited in her choices that she was tempted (and tried) introducing chicken and fish back into her diet. Thankfully a few new vegetarian options opened closer to campus so she was able to make some healthier choices. There are many vegan and vegetarian options in Miami including some great grocery stores nearby with many vegan options as well.
Here are a few favorites close to campus:
Amsterdam Falafel Shop
5835 Sunset Drive
Whether you are vegan, vegetarian, living a gluten-free life, grew up on Middle Eastern food, or just love falafel and shawarma… this is your spot!
Eden in Eden
1248 SW 22nd Street
Eden in Eden is Miami’s first vegetarian-inspired French brasserie.
2 miles south of campus on US1
2895 McFarlane Road, Coconut Grove
A vegan chain home-grown in Miami. Salads, bowls, meals (all under $10!) sprouted tofu & black bean wrap, or a chickpea tuna and sautéed onion rice bowl.
Pro tip: end your meal with a maple bacon donut, where the bacon is courtesy of a tree instead of a pig.
