With their “eat good, feel good” advocacy, it’s no wonder you’ll surely eat healthy at Nonie’s. The place has started to gain more popularity with their smoothie bowls made from fresh fruits and healthy grains. More than that, they also have their vegan version of classic Filipino dishes. Instead of pig head and chicken liver, they use mushroom and tofu for their sisig, a popular dish from Pampanga. They also have their vegan version of longganisa (Filipino-style sausage). For those who cannot let go of rice, they also have an option for you. They offer adlai, a gluten-free grain paired with toasted dilis or anchovies with local water buffalo cheese, onion, tomato, green mango, seasonal greens, and organic eggs.

Mandala Spa and Resort Villas is already known when it comes to wellness so it’s not a surprise they also serve dishes for the health-conscious. Their in-house restaurant named Prana offers wellness and energy with their vegan, organic, gluten-free, and vegetarian menu. They serve oven-roasted pumpkin risotto, Quinoa pancakes, and pasta with homemade pesto sauce, among others. While their dishes are simple, what makes them special is their freshness. In fact, all the herbs and ingredients used for their menu are from their garden.

When you want to travel to Morocco without leaving the beach, then Kasbah is the place you can visit. This restaurant along the beachfront in Station 1 is serving the flavors of Morrocco in their dishes. Aside from that, they are also well known for their long list of options for vegetarians and vegans. For the appetizer, they have the vegan-friendly Moorish falafel. It is a fritter bite made from chickpea with a side salad and homemade pita bread drizzled with an herb yogurt sauce. If you want something more filling and rich, they also have the seven vegetable couscous tagine ̶ a rich mixture of fluffy couscous, cabbage, zucchini, carrots, squash eggplant in turmeric, and citruses blended with harissa, a North African hot chili pepper paste.

How to get to Kasbah: Coming from the Cagban Jetty Port, get on a tricycle. But since Kasbah is located on the beachfront, you’ll have to walk a bit to get there. The restaurant is situated right next to Discovery Shores.

Despite being one of the island’s longest operating home-grown restaurants, Lemoni Café and Restaurant continuously serves fresh menu to its guests. But the restaurant has been renovated just this last year for a fresher look along with some changes on its menu to cater to nutrition-conscious customers. Among their must-tries in the menu are their big salads. Meanwhile, the most popular is their fresh shrimp and pomelo salad with Asian chili dressing. Another must-try is their version of shakshuka made from tomato, chili, poached egg, and coriander. Finally, to complement their healthy food, Lemoni Café also serves healthy detox juices.

How to get to Lemoni Café and Restaurant: Since the restaurant is located in D’Mall, just tell your tricycle driver to take you there from the Cagban Jetty Port. The restaurant is located within the shopping center itself.

Now with a healthier option, this all-day breakfast restaurant can make you crave for breakfast any time of the day. The Sunny Side Café started to add more Filipino-style dishes on their menu sans the guilty rice pleasure. They are serving brown rice dishes with tuna salpicao and the classic tapa (dried or cured beef). If you want a comforting vegetarian dish, then their spinach & mushroom baked eggs is for you. But if you can’t decide whether to have breakfast or proceed directly to the dessert, the chia and fruit pudding from The Sunny Side Café can be the answer. It is made of a cup of chia pudding, topped with mango chunks and purée, lychees, and a bit of hibiscus jam and mint.

How to get to The Sunny Side Café: Ride a tricycle from the Cagban Jetty Port and alight at D’Mall. From there, you can walk towards the White Beach Path towards Boracay Sands Hotel. The Sunny Side Café is located at the beachfront of the hotel.



Since it is tempting to eat everything while on travel, choosing places which serve healthier dishes can be your best option to stay healthy while on vacation.
